Bass Pro Shops XPS KVD Signature Series 100% Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
I always had great success with the white label BPS Flouro but they missed the mark on this one. Like many others, I bounced around to many different brands of line finding positives about each and also issues with each. You know the feeling? I always found myself coming back to the white label and was always impressed. This line caused me issues. It was somewhat uncooperative (casting reel) and the knots were a real issue. It almost gave you the impression that the knot would fail before it was cinched down. I would love to find a 1000 yrd. spool of the old tried and true white label BPS. With the 4+ rating of that line, why did Bass Pro mess with a good thing. Be warned about this stuff.

If I could rate it "0" I would
Like many other reviewers, I was very disappointed to find out the white lable was no longer available. Bought this thinking it was just different packaging. Waste of money, don't buy it, its stiffer, has more memory, and knots are unreliable. I'll be returning my unopened packages. BPS will hopefully take the hint on these reviews that they screwed up by changing line and will bring the white lable back. Time to find another brand.

I will never stray from Power Pro or Suffix braid again. This stuff is too stiff and its memory is unbelievable...would never attempt to use on a spinning reel. KVD either didn't really try this stuff out or had a different formula line when testing.

Junk Junk Junk
The description for this line is completely false. This line has more memory than a super computer. Should be known that its also champion of all backlashes on baitcasters. On spinners, as soon as you open the bale, it shoots off like a spring. Its garbage. Why KVD would put his initials on this stuff is beyond me, but I would HIGHLY recommend NOT wasting your money on this junk.
