Excel is soft, smooth, and limp, allowing for long casts. Limited stretch and high-impact shock strength, so there are no surprises when you set the hook.
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 282 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Value Back in 1994 I purchased a 9,000 yard spool of 6lb test Bass Pro Shops Excel line in the green color. I remember using the line on every outting and had great success. Then I graduated highschool and went on to college and so forth. During this time I had not fished. Fast forward to 2006 I later found this old spool and thought what the heck I'll give it a shot and if it breaks on knots and casts then I'll just toss it in the garbage. Much to my surprise the line held up just as strong as it did the day I got it. I found this spool sitting in my tool shed where it gets very hot during the summers and we all know that heat and fishingline don't mix. Of course the line was stored in the cardboard box that it originally came in but we're talking about 12 years in storage. I've tried many lines in the past and I'm still currently experimenting with other brands. Names like Pline, Maxima, Ande, suffix, Trilene, Izorline, even over seas brand like Dam. These lines have been purchased long after I've forgotten about the Excel and the only brand that comes close in durability over time would be p-line cxx-xtra strong. If you haven't tried it give it a shot. Overall, I'm not saying Excel is the strongest line out there but if I were to rate it it would be like this. Knot Strength: 4/5 *When compared to more expensive brands. Break Strength: 4/5 *When compared to more expensive brands. Memory: 5/5 *When compared to any brand. Castability: 5/5 *When compared to any brand. Abrasion: 4/5 *This is expected of line that is this soft and castable. Durability: 5/5* This is where the line really shines. There is no other line that I've used out there that has maintained all of it's original chracteristics over a long period of time. Bass Pro Shops Excel is definitely one of the best value out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best mono fishing line value out there I have used this line for years and years. You won't find a better value out there. For the money, there is no comparison. Trust me, I have fished them all. If there is one downfall, it would be that the line stretch is fairly significant. However, for crankbait fishing, I actually prefer to have the stretch so I don't pull the bait out of the mouth of the bass before hook up. With 6 lbs test Bass Pro Shops Excel Monofilament, I have landed plenty of 5 to 7 lbs bass and have not had any issues with line breakage. February 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great line for the price. I fish for catfish here in texas. I was at bass pro in grapevine and they had this line on sale for a big spool. I got a box of the 17 lb stuff and figured i'd give it a shot. I've caught every size catfish from 2 to 20 lbs with it and had no problems besides the occasional snapped line from too much stress on the knot. They say mono will stretch but I think it all has its limits. I fish with 12 ft. rods and 3 to 6 ounce weights and it does just as well as shakesphere cajun red line that i've been using for years. Over all a very good line for the price. I only give 4 stars because I did lose about a 40-50 pounder the other night. That was the occasional snapped line I was referring to. June 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good line This line has great strength and knot strength, but it can sometimes have knots when fishing in windy conditions. Overall this line is great. May 30, 2013

I looked at my 1500 yd spools and can't find one. I always write the dates on my spools when I buy them. I have also found, kept indoors, this line has a tremendous usable shelf life.

High stretch in my opinion. However, not necessarily a bad thing if you are fishing crankbaits or spinnerbaits.

A: 
In my opinion, this would be an average to low stretch for a normal mono line. Especially for the price. If you are looking for a true low stretch, go with a braid or copolymer like Fireline or Spiderwire. Not recommending the brands, just a type of line.

A: 
this is a typical mono line, which will stretch as you would expect normal mono to. i like using the lower # tests (4, 6) for panfishing. that's where these jumbo spools come in handy, especially if you're filling up spare spools. i probably go thru more line panfishing than anything else. and saving a few bucks on line definitely helps. don't forget to use some reel magic on your line the night before a trip. makes the line nice and limp and reduces memory.

A: 
Absolutely! Monofilament line is excellent for crankin' in my opinion because the stretch gives time for the fish to load up before setting the hook and reduces the chances of you skin hooking the bass and pulling it away too quickly with lines like braid or fluorocarbon.

Staff Answer
A: 
Monofilament is great for power styles of fishing (such as cranking) because of it's stretching ability. It helps to compensate for short striking fish on lures and hard hook sets because it allows for a split-second longer of a hook set. Try lighter line to get the bait deeper or use heavier line to help the bait float higher in the water column (depending on what you are trying to mimic).

I use it in saltwater, but I don't do much of it. It would be comparable with any other mono. I recommend a leader. The water itself won't hurt the line at all. If abrasion is your ? I would try something a little more tough.

I buy enough line at a given time to be used in a 2 year period. I note the date of purchase on each spool I get and attempt to use it all in that timeframe. Mono does seem to generate line memory as it ages and I have been told becomes more brittle as well. Neither, good characteristics for hooking and landing fish!

When I purchase EXCEL (1500 yd spools) I mark the month/year on the inside of the flap. This way I know when I purchased it. I found some 4lb in the garage and used it last week. I couldn't tell it from the line I purchased last month. Keep it dry and out of the sun and you won't have a problem.
