And not had issue? I'm considering doing it as floro prices keep going higher these days. I only respool every couple of months or when I break off enough getting hung up deep. What's everyone's thoughts on this?

I did on my moving baits. I keep flouro on my jig rods.
I use Izorline XXX copoly. huge spools of it about half the price of small spool of flouro.

Is stretch a problem on it? I just lined my big swimbait rod with p-line xxx copoly. Looking at getting big spool of izorline.

Gamma will make you forget using anything else- tough , no memory and the way they blend it is different from any other brand

Are you talking the FC or the Co-poly?

I found McCoys Mean Green back in 2000 and never have had problems with it. Use it on everything but my C-rig rod, TOO much stretch for me on that application (use it for leader material, though). All moving baits and topwater, even shakey head, drop shot and finesse applications (I use baitcasters for everything). I DID have a spool of flouro around 2000, but didn't like it because of the stiffness and it felt like dead line to me. McCoys has a GREAT amount of abrasion resistance, VERY low memory, Good amount of Stretch (more than Big Game, or at least equail to Big Game) AND it is STRONG as an ox. I can tow a 21' boat around with over 500 lbs of people up wind with 20# test. Hope this helps. NO, I am NOT associated with McCoys either. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I use quite a bit of McCoys Mean Green. It's good stuff. I'm going to try Izorline. I keep one rod with flouro, several with Mean Green, and a couple with braid.

I have been considering dropping everything but braid and co-poly but am not sure co-poly will get as many bites as floro, guess there is only 1 way to find out

I switched to Mason's Bass On line. Super tough, quite thin, low stretch, very manageable and buy 800 yards of 17 lb for around $15. Only place I can find it is on their web site. Nice folks to talk to and informative.
