I just bought more 650 yd spools of 20#,15# and 12# Big Game green.
If no other lines were made, It wouldn't bother me at all.
It's the cheapest and still works best for me.

I use it on my surf fishing combos. Cheap and strong. I use mostly 30lb and up in the sand.

I'm a fluorocarbon and braid to flouro guy when bass fishing and straight fluorocarbon when flats fishing.

Big Game is one of the best monofilaments for the money but I like co-polymer lines better so I use McCoys and P-line instead.

^^^^^agree. I really like McCoys, but I had a weird spool of it recently (frail/brittle 10lb Mean Green)

Pline CXX is a little less stretchy, more abrasion resistant and stronger than Big Game (with about the same memory) and doesn't cost a whole lot more.

It's the only mono I use. Mostly green but I do have some clear. I change it often so memory not an issue unless you get over 20 lb. line (IMHO).

Been using it for at least 25 years. I do have occasions where I spool up braid but 10-20 lb Green Big Game is the norm. I have tried other mono and many brands of Flouro which I have zero confidence in. I have lost many big fish setting the hook with flouro and the knot breaks. Again I use green 100% of the time because in clear water under a high sun you can see a reflection from the suns glare off clear line.

I don't use it anymore, but did for years back in the day. Its still dang good line for the money. If I couldn't get Suffix or BPS I would probably go back to it.

Very productive thread here folks - enjoying all the feedback and appreciate those who have replied. Thank you again.

I do wish they made 6lb BG for spinning, but have run the 8# w/o any memory problems on 25 and 30 sized Pfluegers. Run 8 and 10 on Baitcast more recently with a somewhat whippy Medium BPS rod/reel for various lures, no issues, but felt both were a tad light for general purpose bass fishing. Will likely p/u a spool of the 12#. I have spools in 8, 10, 15 and 25, the latter for plans for Catfishing which I was doing in the past. The study on the line visibility underwater sounds interesting. Heard mixed views how fish react, and again seems like Crappie might be more fickle than bass. The green must be working fairly well given the # of replies of fans. How much it costs in strikes vs clear would be interesting, but likely hard to quantify. I would imagine line diameter and color might change how fish react based on what type of lure is used, and speed of retrieve, just a hunch.....as well as the water clarity. Good stuff gang, looks like I can do worse than using BG for certain applications. I have used with good success P-line CX in 6 and 8 for UL and Light Spinning, and played with braid briefly. Sounds like worm and jig fishing is more often done with something other than Mono. Like someone above, I spent time years ago at Toledo Bend as a kid, in those days baitcasters were often spooled with 15 BG....lots of fish were caught.

Still use Big Game for my top waters, 12lb green. Use copolymer p line and invisx fluorocarbon and spiderwire braid on everything else.
