Default Fluorocarbon "Bubble" busted???

Check out this article: http://www.tackletour.com/reviewfluorocarbon2.html

Finding independent reviews of fishing gear is not always easy but these guys do as good a job as they can. Ill tell you this, I won't spool fluoro on an entire reel after reading that article. The "deformity" issue is particularly disturbing.

Thanks for posting that.* I've been contemplating making the change from Berkley mono to flourocarbon line (I'm always slow to make changes).* After reading that article, I think I'll stick with mono, for now.* Visibility does not appear to be much better, if any better at all.* Seaguar seems to get recommendations from people on this site. If the test results are accurate, Seaguar is one of the worst flouro lines on the market, it would appear.

I am a firm believer in Fluro as a leader. Just last weekend I was fishing with a friend and using the same exact setup i.e. fishing method bait and location. I was outfishing him 12 to 0 he did not get a bite. Main difference is I was using fluro and he was not. Is it plain luck or maybe the line, who knows.

I just switched to flouro on my finesse rig- it is great for throwing very light lures because it does not float like mono does. If you throw a light lure with mono there can be a large bow in your line because the mono floats. The flouro does not which means you have more direct contact with your lure. I used the bass pro brand- so far I have been very pleased.

It seems that all lines have their place and time.

Spin fishing, I use green colored mono.

Fly fishing streams, flouro and I swear by it. I have caught fish using flouro tippet while a guy with me used mono and caught nothing using the same flies.

I agree that all lines have there place and time. I know that I didn't like flouro on my spininng setup because it was way too stiff and didn't cast very well. I do think it works well as a leader on the end of braid.

I only use floro as a leader.

Just what my blonde roots were telling me... I love Pline CFX fluorocarbon leader though, and a couple of the co-polymer lines (like Yozori Hybird). I like the results the Maxima fluoro line got in the tests.... - I might try it as leader.
