This spring I was spin fishing the Arkansas using 6 lb vanish. The rocks were really chewing it up, so every couple hours I had to strip 30 feet of line off and throw it away or risk breaking off a decent fish.

I won't use flourocarbon line when fishing rocky areas in the future. Otherwise it's OK.

almost every thing i have read about flouro lines is that they are tougher than mono, you may have been getting the abrasion because flouro is heavyer and will sink down to the rocks quicker. i have had problems while still fishing along riprap with the line getting tangled in the rocks as it will sink and settle in the crevices

i use flouro for everything as i feel the benifits out way any downside except for dryfly leader/tippet kinda hard to get a fly to float with a sinking line

I HATE Vanish. I tried it a couple of times both on spinning and on baitcast reels. It had a tendency to fray or delaminate, kind of like string cheese pulls apart. That was on both kinds of outfits.

Now I use P-Line Fluoroclear hybrid on my baitcast reels and love it. For the spinning reels I've gone back to straight Trilene mono or Fireline with a fluoro leader.

You couldn't pay me to fish with Vanish.

I don't think Don likes Vanish.
I just bought a spool of the 4lb test P-lne hybrid and will be trying it out tomorrow at a lake to be named later. (because I haven't really decided yet)
I've always used trilene on my micro rods and never had a problem with tangles. But I thought I'd give the flourocarbon a shot.

I use 12lb P-line floro for lakers through the ice and I have never lost a fish and it sets the hook like a champ.

I switch those reels over to the bass poles in the summer months and again no complaints here. If you get a jig stuck under a rock the P-line will help you flip over boulders and it doesn't break.

Fluorocarbon line isn't good for main line IMO. It just has too much memory. However its excellent for leader. Don is right Vanish is very brittle. Fluoro is even great for pike leader in 15 - 30 pound test. At least twice as cut and abrasion resistant than mono of the same thickness.
