After not using it for a number of years I'm thinking of going back to P Line but not sure which I wish to use. As best as I can remember CXX seemed to be a little more sensitive and less likely to have memory. Also thinking of spooling some of the Folorclear. Thoughts or recommendation about P-Line.

cxx is a lot stiffer. I prefer the CX. They are both strong and I didn't notice a difference in the sensitivity.

Yep and cxx gets memory pretty bad, but it is STRONG! Can’t hardly break the stuff, but it’s also thicker in the same lb test than the cx. I got tired of paying the money for fluoro and went back to Pline, no complaints yet.

I use both as leaders Braid mainline. Couldn’t imagine using CXX for mainline with all that memory.

CXX is stiffer and buoyant It’s more abrasion resistant than CX

CX is more supple and more neutrally buoyant

I like CXX for traps, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, jigs, Trig, weightless senkos/flukes, crig

Prefer the neutral buoyancy of CX for jerkbaits, shaky head, drop shot

P-lines 100% fluorocarbon and CX not exclusive however I do have two rods with each. The fluorocarbon for tx rigged worms and a fluke. CX for a top water and crank bait.

CX is the better all around line of the two IMO.

I've used CX Premium for several years - excellent line. Never tried the CXX. I'm also a big fan of their braid. The TCB (Teflon Coated Braid) is the best braid I've ever used. I believe the newest one is TCB-8 (8 carrier weave).

I use flouroclear for moving baits. Going to try cx next to have something to compare to.

I use CX premium, CXX and P-line Halo.
CX premium has low memory, good strength, thin diameter, and casts well. I use it for my lighter baits most of the time.
CXX very strong, more memory than CX premium and thicker per pound test than CX premium. Very good line when you need ultimate strength.
P-Line Halo very strong fluorocarbon line. Stronger than P-Line 100% but it curls more than the 100%.

I like McCoys Mean Green copolymer for moving baits.


Stay away from P-line Voltage. That stuff was terrible.
