Berkley Trilene Sensation

My favorite mono is the Trilene Sensation. I've been burned by the Big Game Mono too many times, and now that I've switched to the Sensation, I'll never go back. I like how it's limp and super strong. It also has a good bit of sensitivity for if you were to ever use it for a jig or something. Awesome line!

Berkley Big Game is all I use, I use a fluorocarbon leader on a Carolina Rig, usually 15lb. Invisx.

I usually use fluor also on C Rig, but after watching several of the pros' videos, I am going to try mono and see what luck I have.

Big Game for over 30 yrs because that's what a lot of guides on Toledo were using. Last year, our Fork guide had Big Game on all rigs...never failed me.

Trilene XL has never let me down. Before flourocarbon came along it was all I used. Now pretty much 10- 17# for top water and 17# fro C-Rig. Big Game too stiff and inconstant for me but if it works for you guys stay with it.

Mustad has brought back one of their lines that I have had some great luck with. It is called Thor.

Walmart has it and it is priced way below what it should be. It is as good if not better than BIG GAME IMO but half the price and half as much stretch.

It is on all my customers rods/reels they use while with me and I cannot tell you how many have went and bought it after fishing with it.

Good stuff cast great low memory. Clear as Florocarbon. Give it a try I think you will be very happy with the line and the price.

It is NOT a mono, but copolymer, but I like McCoys Mean Green for all moving presentations. I also use it form y C-rig leader, because it floats. Made with mono and silicone, GREAT toughness, very low memory and strong as an ox. I have straightened out #4 hooks on 15# test. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keeop safe and good luck.
