Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Signature Series Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
- Disappears in the water
- Twice as dense as monofilament
- Low stretch for increased sensitivity
- Low water absorption for superior knot strength
After winning not one, but four Bassmaster Classics® on our advanced fluorocarbon line, Kevin VanDam is ardently spreading the word about its unique fishing characteristics. Like us, Kevin believes that using XPS® Signature Series Fluorocarbon will help you catch more fish--even in ultra-clear water because fluorocarbon has almost the same refractive index as water, so it virtually disappears when wet. Plus, this line is nearly twice as dense as mono, so it sinks faster than the same diameter monofilament and allows better control of your lures. But the part you'll like even better is its low stretch, which translates directly to increased sensitivity; unlike fishing with mono, you'll feel every tick. With low water absorption for superior knot strength, high abrasion resistance and long-wearing built-in UV protection, XPS® Fluorocarbon is a proven winner - just ask Kevin VanDam, he's used the line to win 4 Bassmaster Classics! Color: Clear.

- when spooling the reel, lay the filler spool on the ground. Wind the line onto the reel and do it slowly. Stop reeling and check for twist. If it is twisting, turn the spool over. and repeat process until reel is full.
-Also leave about a 1/4' from the top of the reel's spool. This will help with the line flying off the reel.
-Some baits cause twist if the are not aligned properly. Plastic worms have to be lined up dead straight.
-if line gets stwisted on the water, you can cut the bait off and let the line out behind the boat. this will un-twist it. If you are on a bank, just leave the line in the water and walk down the bank.
If you don't like the extra care needed for line twist, consider putting braid on your reel with a 6 ft. leader of fluoro, tied on with a uni to uni knot.
These days I only use mono for bobber fishing with my grandson for bluegill.
and has the best lure persentation.
