A co-author and I (who are continually researching lines for project) have tested over 30 lines. The "best" that we've seen so far is the Seaguar Carbon Pro. Unfortunately, Carbon Pro is set to be discontinued within a couple of months due to the cost in making the line. Their (Seaguar aka Kureah Corp) sales of Carbon Pro went up by a full %20 last season...still it's simply too expensive to make.

I just purchased 5 bulk spools of various pound tests. I plan on purchasing 3 more. I'm hoarding it like it's a nuclear holocaust.

Bps proved itself to me as I caught 7 that wrapped me in a tree and when she came up there was piece of bark that was stuck or wedged to my line and it didnt have a fray or a kink at all!!!!!

seaguar is good too, pricey though!

I heard you`ve been hoarding it all. I really like the Carbon Pro, too, but it`s a little stiff in the winter.

...Naaah! Yer just using it wrong! grin JK! It does have a bit of memory...but if spooled correctly, you can manage MOST of it. Then again, the largest test (on bait casting) I use is 15 and that's for my pitching & swimbaits. On spinning gear the largest I go is 12 on a larger spool...I usually stick with 8lb for finesse and crankbaits. It serves me well.

Yeah, I heard you’ve pounded all but the Red Label trying to find your go-to line. I think you’ll like the new stuff…although I have not yet tested it. I did pick some up from “the man” to test it. I’m busy as heck right now but I’ll post the results when I get around to getting it “mic’d”.

I've been using InvisX for about 2 years ... I like it. I just bought some Berkley 100% and I think it may be more supple.

One thing I hate most of all is breaking a fish off, so I want the best line I can get my hands on. At this point I would say my top three pics are...
Trilene 100%- Expensive and just a little stiff.
Carbon Pro- Affordable, but a little stiff
AbrazX- Just right thumb

If you find anything you like better let me know.
