I plan to still use mono. But I'm 65 and old school (not to mention stubborn). Used braid years ago when it first came out and while it has it's advantages it has some bad traits also.

As I fish at night when the weather permits, I need a line that glows in black lights. That definitely limits my choices.

I just swapped a couple of my rods over to Yozuri Hybrid and CX Premium which are much better than Mono and CXX in my opinion.

On a bunch of my setups I'm using power pro braid as a backer with about a 20 foot leader of Seaguar Tatsu flouro. I use an Alberto knot and have very little difficulty casting and have never once had a failure at the connecting knot. You get the best of both worlds in my opinion. Not to mention you can get an awful lot of mileage out of a spool of that super expensive tatsu.

i still use nothing but Seaguar Invisex fluorocarbon in 12#, 15#, 20# and 25# and PowerPro Super Slick Braid 30# and 65#. That covers all my bases from top water to crank baits to frogs to flipping.

I just bought 9000 yards of CX Premuim. And I consider it basically a monofilament line that is coated. Technically, copolymer lines are just monofilament lines that have been crafted with a blend of different nylon strands to create a line with a different feel. Yes, it isn't old-school mono, but it's close. And probably a bit better.

Yozuri Hybrid rocks! Tried lots of others but keep coming back. The only downside is the 20 pound gets stiff when its cold. Havent decided on fluoro and braid yet but currently using power pro braid and Seaguar flouro. You need mono for many topwaters to work correctly.

I'm thinking about switching everything to Hi-Seas Grand Slam Select, cheap, but i think it's so much more visible than fluoro. Just can't tell. anyone just use mono and still catch a lot of fish?


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

There are plenty of people that still just use Trilene and Stren mono and catch a lot of fish

The advantages of braid mainline to different leaders can be very convincing
—saves money. Braid lasts a long,long time, especially if you are using leaders (straight braid for frogs and punching thick vegetation)
—saves time: much quicker to change out a leader vs respooling
—improves sensitivity with very low stretch braid (especially with budget friendly rod blanks)
—improves hookset quality (especially at the end of a long cast due to very low stretch)

Suffix 832 for braid, Seaguar InvisX for flouro and Pline CXX for mono but it's pretty stiff.

I use Izorline platinum on most of my rods.
Braid: Pline works for me

I like:
Seaguar InvizX for moving baits in general
- Relatively low memory, great consistency/quality control, and great casting fluoro; has some stretch so it can help keep treble-hooked fish buttoned when they fight

Trilene XL mono for topwaters in clear water
- It's old technology, everybody makes good mono, I've just always used Trilene

Sunline FX2 for Carolina rigs in any water color, flipping and topwater in muddy water/vegetation/heavy cover
- Extremely tough, casts well, color doesn't fade much, also seems to last forever - I have 2 year old line that continues to perform

Sunline SX1 for spinning reel main line to about 10 feet of 8-10 lb Seaguar InvizX leader and an FG/Rizutto knot connection (p.i.t.a. to tie)
- Extremely smooth casting, the FG/Rizutto knot is tiny and sails through the guides, super sensitive setup for finesse stuff

Hiseas 100% Fluoro for flipping in cleaner water
- Most abrasion-resistant line I've used, less stretch and more sensitive than InvizX but less manageable as a result; slightly cheaper than Seaguar too.

These are the same lines I use. I also use Daiwa Samuri braid. With the PLine CXX if you stay with 15# test and less it is manageable. CXX is a very strong low stretch copolymer line.

I have braid on a few rods. Use a leader as needed.

Use YoZuri, CX or CXX for everything else.

Tried several brands of fluoro, not worth the extra money for me.
