  • Thinking about using Floroclear this year???

    Posted by jard on March 29, 2015 at 3:07 am

    I have always used Seaguar Invisx Fluoro. 10 lb on spinning and 15-17 on my baitcasters. I am thinking about using P-Line Floroclear this year as I seemed to break off more than normal last year on the rocks around priest. Has anyone used it and can give a good review or should I just go to Invisx or possibly just switch to AbrasX as I have never used it.

    I use pline fluorocarbon on all my bait-casters from 10lb up to 20. I’ve used it for about five years now and have no issues with it. It was the first fluorocarbon I tried so no comparisons for you but I have hooked up on more casts than I use to especially on those long casts with football jigs. No problem with stretch or breaking.

    Jard – I just want to clarify something real quick, there’s a difference between P-Line Fluorocarbon and P-Line Floroclear. The former being P-Line’s 100% fluorocarbon offering and the latter I believe is co-polymer coated with some sort of fluorocarbon.

    I think a lot of it comes down to application and perhaps more importantly, budget. You’ll get a million different opinions on this subject matter, especially Invisx. I’ve used it, liked it, but I did feel like it had quite a bit of stretch in it and I did break off more often with it. Having said that, I’ve heard really good things about P-Line’s 100% Fluorocarbon, though I’ve never used it, but I believe it’s fairly expensive. But hey, you get your pay for, right? Hopefully. I’ve been using Sunline Super Fluorocarbon (12# and 20#) on my bait casters for the past 1-2 years with tremendous success. Inexpensive, low stretch, small diameter relative to poundage and supple. It’s been so good I don’t see myself changing anytime soon.

    Yes, FloroClear is a copolymer that is Fluorocarbon coated. I very well may have gotten a bad spool of the invisx because I have always liked it but last year I just broke off way more than normal around the rocks and I was thinking the copolymer would be stronger. The other issue with invisx is I dont want to buy 1000 yards per time as I only use over half of it and the rest may sit for a while. I just found 600 yard spools of the Sunline FC sniper for about $45 apiece. I may try that.

    Bryan, when you tournament fish, what fluoro do you use?

    I have tried pline fluroclear. It’s not pure fluro so it still has a little stretch in it. If you’re looking for a good copolymer, then this is it. But, it doesn’t have a lot of abrasion resistance. I mainly use this fluro when I am cranking with a graphite rod. For straight fluro I like trilene 100% fluorocarbon. Way better than xps and vicious fluro.

    If you found 600 yds of Sniper for $45, I’d jump on that!
