Ande Back Country Monofilament Line - 1/4 lb. Spool
I landed a 46lb Cobia on Back Countly 12lb test. Now I did have 15lb leader tough! I use it offshore all the time and catch big mutton snapper, Black Fin Tuna and Kings! I also landed a 34lb Blackfin Tuna on 15lb Back Country. I also work at Bass Pro Shops and I would definately stand behind the line for the price and performance.

line should been made 20 yrs ago
I have fished all my life since i was 5....fished for plenty of different species of fish from trout,walleye bass and pike to crappie and channel cats..to name a few...Now I primarilary bass fish..and with all the different lines I have used from trilene xl and xt to big game,stren,cajun red and also bass pro excel line...this line in my opinion is deadly by itself in that i can truly envision it being crystal clear in water which works great for both clear and also stained water...I will even go as far as to say that I wouldnt be afraid to try this with drop shot presentations...over our more favorable flourocarbon lines...NO Matter if you are a weekend warrior or tournament extraordinar dont be a fool...you need to try it...

Ande's Got A Winner Here
Started buying this line about 4 years ago after reading a book about a fishes vision and what they really see. I'm not going to go into detail about the results of the tests. But lets just say, I used to use Ande tornament Green or Big Game because it blended in better with vegetation. Not anymore.
Back Country is just as supple, strong, exellent knot strength, castabilty ect.
Easily my favorite line these days. And my larger clear water fish are all the proof I need.

I have tried all the other lines available through the years and kept coming back to Ande. Started back in the 80s using Trilene XL in 17 pound test for worming, 20 pound test for jigging, and 12 pound test for cranking. I found that much lighter test in Ande would work better. There seemed to be less stretch and clearly was a much tougher monofilament. Only drawback to the Back Country seems to be that no one will carry the lighter weights in the large spools.
