Do you know what he didn’t like about It.

I have invisx on almost all my reels. Grabbed this to go on my swimbait/umbrella rig rod. 20lb.

I’m on day three with it. I am a LONG time InvisX user, and this stuff is worse than red label. It has to a of memory, digs in like braid on a hookset, and frays easily. It is stronger than rated strength, it seems out of round and thicker than advertised. I am currently using 15lb. I think it feels like 17lb. It is only good for when the store is out of my InvisX.

Casting seems to cause more overruns. It jumps up off spool and constantly needs to be peeled off and rewound through the day.

Sensitivity is about the same, with little stretch.

All in all, it’s worth the $10 for 200 yards, but it ain’t great at all.

Made in Japan! Same basic specs as the others! $15 less for the same 200 yards!

My gut talked me into buying some too. But yeh…I feel like it made my next spool of InvisX $35!!! Hahah.

It measures exactly as advertised in 10 and 12 # with my trusty micrometer , checked after this out of curiosity , I can't see any difference between it and Red Label , both are great until the first time a Senko comes off on a cast then I throw the rig back in the rod box and cut the entire spool off when I get home, re-spool with Mean Green and ask myself why am I such a gluten for punishment. bang

I have several spools in various sizes for leaders. Using it as a leader I have no complaints. Never used it as a main line or a leader longer than 6' so take that for what its worth.

I bought 4 packages. I have 2 17’s and a 20 unopened. I might use them as leaders.
Back to academy to spend $100 on InvisX.

I’ve always used red label 10lb for leaders on my spinning rods. No complaints there either. 6’ or less always.
