What's your thoughts about this stuff. Do you like it or not? Would you use it for a leader off braid ?

Great stuff. Use it on moving lures.

I like it as well, and use it for fishing jigs. No problems

In my arsenal if it doesn't have braid on it then its copolymer. It works great for all applications IMHO.. from topwater, to flipping, to crankin, to big ole swimbaits, to shakey head and drop shot I have no complaints! Been fishing P-Line CX Premium almost exclusively for probably the last 10 years.

Yep, p-line flouroclear here. Works great around heavy cover too.

McCoy's Mean Green co-poly on all moving baits. Have used it for years and it is great at what it does. Very strong, holds a knot well, and has good stretch to keep you from pulling treble hooks on a surge.

I had terrible luck with McCoys and gave it all away it was so bad. I use P-Line CXX now. A little stiffer, but I don't lose my fish anymore either. Even contacted McCoys and explained what was going on and talked them through it and they wanted me to pay to have it sent back to them so they could look at it then would let me know if they were willing to replace it.......... NOT. What a crock.

only time I would use it. Stretches like a rubber band, I can't fell anything with it. I do use it for my c-rig leaders some but not sure I love it over fluoro or anything but it is cheaper.

Pline CXX has less stretch than many fluoro options. It's stiff with memory issues; but it's great leader material with braid main line.

Been using McCoys Mean Green since 2000. NEVER had any problems with the line or the company. It is very STRONG, very ABRASION RESISTANT, good amount of STRETCH and VERY LOW MEMORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT leader material and I use it on all my moving baits. T-rigs and jigs also. Do not use it as main line on C-rig, too much stretch for my application, there, but use it as the leader material. It is smaller in diameter by about 2-3 lbs than most mono's. For instance, 12# McCoys is the same size as most mono's 10# line. 15# McCoys is about the same size as 12# mcono (not quite, but very close). Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

NOT affiliated with them in any way, just like their product very much.

Good for reaction baits, bad for bottom contact baits.

Same for me - straight P-line CX Premium or braid with leader of CX Premium.
