Couldn't agree more with this statement. Let's put it this way...it's supple, yet strong, it's pretty darn abrasion resistant, and it has low memory.

I use Tatsu, its the most expensive but Ive tried cheaper multiple times and always end up re spool etc the memory just doesnt leave the cheaper stuff.

I have rods spooled from spring of 2019 still with it, mostly my cranking rods. It will have memory after sitting a long time but it goes away pretty fast.

I only use 10lb flouro. I use it for leader and also on some of my moving bait rigs. I have been buying the 150yd spools and paying through the nose for Invisix. I finally bit the bullet and bought 1000yd spool from Walmart.com for $63 before Christmas. That is by far the best way to buy it. That will last me for years!

Do a survey of people who use Sniper and Invixz and you will probably find it around 50/50. Both are good I just happen to prefer Sniper for bottom contact and Invizx for dropshot

I now use Yozuri Top Knot exclusively. It does retain some reel memory after sitting for an extended period of time, i try and stretch the flourocarbon a day or two before, seems to help with thememory.

I thought it was manufactured by Toray? I heard it was same as Toray years ago but good chance its made by someone else now.

I've used nothing but Invisix for close to 10 years and tried Tatsu last year for the first time. I was shocked at the difference in feel and memory. I will be buying nothing but Tatsu moving forward. In regards to cost, just buy a year's supply every year at the TW Christmas sale. Normally Seaguar goes on sale in December for something like 40-50% off. Buy in the 1,000 yard spools.

I tried it once about 4 years ago with 15 # test line on a Tx. rig and it broke on me 3 times that day. I then fished a Tx. rig with my Invizx that was over a year old and it did not break on me. I threw the rest of the Sunline in the trash and have bought Invizx since then. It doesn't let me down. Sunline did.

If you already use Invizx you are wasting your money trying out Sunline sniper from my past experience with it.
