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.

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.

Long time XPS "White Label" user
I am super particular about this subject. I arrived at XPS after years of sampling many other lines. I was not happy when BPS changed over to this (before I realized the white label would still be available). I went ahead and bought a 1000 yd. spool of 12 lb. hoping it would be as good as the old XPS. 20 days of fishing and 2 tournaments later I have to say I like it better! It is definitely a little stiffer but it also seems more abrasion resistant (We fish a lot of rocks up here). The way it is evenly wound on at the factory blows the white label away. It goes on smooth as silk. My last batch of White Label looked as if it had been spooled by a monkey. I have officially moved on from White Label.

Excellent Fluorocarbon line
I have used Bps flurocarbon line for years now and have found it to be excellent. I have researched this comparing line thickness to other lines and it works fine and thinner than much more expensive lines. Line memory is also much less than other lines. I love it and do recommend to others.
