Seaguar Red Label. I have had a great past with this line, and it is budget friendly.

He said budget friendly. No better value or performance than good ol' Trilene Big Game monofilament. Buy the bulk spool in your favorite pound test. I like 15# line for most applications. I no longer use Big Game, but still consider it to be the best all around value in fishing line.

Floro - XPS - T-rigs, jigs in cleaner areas, diving cranks, senkos and spinnerbaits/buzzbaits
Mono - Trilene - Top waters and leader line for c-rigs
Braid - Power Pro - Frog fishing, Jigs in heavy stuff and punching
These are my main lines I use.
For wacky I use a co-polymer.

For best value I would go with either Trilene Big Game or Seaguar Red Label. They are both great!

Gotta go with Fouz on this one. No brand of line offers more for the money than Big Game. If you just gotta have fluorocarbon, seaguar red label would be the one. Vanish is pretty reasonable as well.

You don't have to respool that often. Just wasting money. I have 25lb fluorocarbon on a flipping rod that's been on it for over a year. I have caught several over 8 lbs on it. I fish often.

The only reason I change out line is memory. I stretch my line before a trip if I haven't been in a couple weeks but when it stops lying flat without coils then I replace. Way more criticle with my "contact" lures like worms and jigs than say a crankbait... As stated above I still use a lot of mono because it still works(not broken) and Big Game is both good and cheap.

I've use this line a lot, fairly cheap, but seems to be a good fluorocarbon. Also try power pro braid, It's always been good for me.

Fouz is dead on with the Big Game but for me there could be a better option if you aren't fishing clear water. Braid is by far the most cost effective line because you can use the same spool for a VERY long time.n So if you normally fish really stained or heavy vegetation lakes, I would go with braid

Mc Coy's or Big Game for copoly or mono and Sunline Super Fluorocarbon if you want a cheaper fluoro...

I bought a pack of this a while back and have to agree. Costs more up front but it makes up for it by outlasting Big Game.

If you don't want to spend too much up front, nothing wrong with respooling with Big Game every couple of trips.
