I've been going back and forth between Invisx and red label. In the Austin area there are so many rocks and zebra mussels that Invisx gets frayed much easier and broken off quite a bit. Red label is much tougher, but is not nearly as pliable. Getting ready to start asking Mrs. Santa to stock up for me. Any of you guys ever tried the Abrasx? If so how does it compare to the other two in terms of manageability?

Personally all I ever use is Abrasx and it’s pretty manageable. without a backlash a spool will last quite a while on the reel. In my opinion it’s 200% better Invisx other than the price I would give it a shot.

I’ve tried them all...I have had better luck with the InvisX. I now have a few shallow spools of AbrasX and use it for leaders.

I have t found any other $20(ish) spool of fluorocarbon line that performs as well as InvisX.

Red Label used to be the deal of the century when it was “level wound” on the spool.

Thanks for the input boys. I was surprised that it was a little more expensive than Invisx by about 10%. I really like the Invisx but this area is just murder on line with the rocks and zebra's. Gonna try a small spool and see how it turns out.

You should give Sunline Sniper a try.

I have been using it for years in some of the gnarliest waters around. Trees coated with quagga muscles. I've tried many brands and found Sniper to not only be smooth, manageable, but very strong with very little frays.

I have had better luck with Abrazx on all contact baits and use Invizx on all moving baits. Break off alot less since this.

I've got some Sniper that I use only for deep diving crankbaits in 12lb test for these ultra clear waters. Haven't tried it for bottom contact yet. I'll probably get a box of Abrasx and bigger Sniper and see which one I like best. Best place for the best price? Looked on Amazon and dang...I need to quit buying stuff from Bass Pro Shop! They are nearly 30% higher on almost everything.

Sniper is good line it’s the only line that I use currently other than Abrasx and it’s good for moving baits like crankbaits and jerkbaits I would try it for most of your moving baits.

I use two types of fluorocarbon. Invizx 15lb Spooled reel for my senko and fluke fishing. And seaguar flipping fluorocarbon 20lb for my leader on my jig rod and Texas rig rod. Spooled with J braid 40lb I start off with a 12’ leader. I love both lines for their application.

Sunline Sniper and you will never use anything else, strong and smaller diameter than competitors in same # strength.

Gamma Edge, Tatsu and 100% Trilene are the toughest lines, IMO

I am braid to leader on almost everything now so I use Tatsu. Since I only use 10-15 ft at a time, the cost isn't so bad. I had a bad experience with several spools of Sunline fluro bought from their website, so I pass on the fluro from them.

I use Sunline Assassin (Abrazix also) and imo, I feel it’s close between invizix and abrazix.
