  • 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.
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 427 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excelent as a leader I bought the 8-12 and 17lb XPS and use it as a leader for my spinning outfits .No break offs , very strong . No problems at all. I use 10-30lb Tuf-Line SuperCast Yellow braid (Yellow is easier to see line movement ) with a 6' leader of XPS fluorocarbon depending on what-where and how I am fishing. Good Fishing Fran NJ. September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flourocarbon line I have been using this line now for about five years now, every time I see it on sale I load up on it. To me personally I think it is the best line out there. I know people have their favorite line and this is mine. I have so much conference in this line. Hope you keep making it!!! August 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Agree I just read a review by ronkie, and I had the same problem. I bought some 8 lb test to put on a spinning outfit as a backup while fly fishing for steelhead in May. I wasn't having much luck with the fly rod, so I switched to the spinning gear. I couldn't keep the line on the reel. As ronkie said, it "flies off the reel in curls". I stripped the line off that night, re-spooled with some Stren and had no further problems. July 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Line Breaks Purchased a spool of 17lb when on sale this past spring (2014) which was a great deal on flourocarbon, I thought. However, this 17lb line has broken on many different occasions during the hook set at no fault of rod eyes or thick cover, just breaks with ease. Purchased due to such good reviews but if you search online you will see that breaking is an issue BPS flourocarbon has had in the past. With as many good reviews this line receives the issue must be spotty but that still doesn't give me the confidence to spool up with this line again. July 7, 2014

A: 
The best all-around knot I have found for trolling is the Uni. The Uni slides on the mainline instead of being a stationary knot. That slide gives the knot more strength because it does not cut into itself like the stationary knots do. Palomar would be an good example of a stationary knot. Do knot worry about the Uni slipping while you are fishing though, it holds tight until you manually move the knot with your fingers.

A: 
It is alright. I personally would use mono with a flouro leader for trolling. I have spent countless hours trolling, and have lost gear by not using mono. Mono will give you the cushion when you get bit. Flouro and braid are just too stiff. A ton of money in gear could get lost very easily with flouro. If using flouro anyhow, buy the Luhr Jensen® Dipsy Diver® Snubbers.

A: 
It's all according to your reel size. You can go up to 10lb flouro but you will lose a little distance on your cast and it will feel and handle slightly different. You may also experience the line unwinding off the spool. I always spool mine just slightly less than I would with mono. I also stop the line after my cast with my index finger of my casting hand. This will keep the line from unwinding by itself before you close the bail. I also let the line brush my finger while reeling in. This keeps a little extra tension on the line and makes it wind up on the spool a little better.

A: 
Yes, most fluorocarbon line has a smaller diameter. Just check the diameter of the current mono you use and look at the diameter of the fluorocarbon you want to use. Most reels will give you a guide line to the size and yds of line to spool. If you use a larger diameter line just spool a little less.

A: 
Absolutely yes you can use 10lb flouro, as opposed to 8lb mono on a spinning reel. I however, use 20lb braided line with a 12lb flouro leader on my spinning set-up. My other alternative is 10lb "magna-thin Stren Line", because even though its mono, it handles better on a spinning rod than flouro, I think.

A: 
Absolutely not! A ten pound flourocarbon has less stretch and is way more sensitive than mono. On 8 pound mono you will miss alot of fish on the hookset because of the stretch especially on a spinning reel where you want to set your drag where it will pull out a little on the hookset especially when you have a bite close to the boat. If you get a bite on a long cast away from the boat at least you have flourocarbon that has alot lower stretch than mono. Remember on a spinning reel with light line you are usually using a light lure and the reason you are using light line is because of a finesse presentation when the fish are either pressured or real finicky. I believe that when im using 10 pound flourocarbon im getting more bites because it is invisible and it sinks.

A: 
The key here would be the actual line diameter. If the fluorocarbon line is the same or close diameter to the 8 lb mono then I would say definitely. Also, while spinning reels don't suffer as much from the same problems as bait casters with fluorocarbon, I would HIGHLY recommend using some of the Kevin Van Damm line conditioner. I use the Bass Pro XPS Fluorocarbon on my bait casters and the conditioner makes all the difference in the world. My casts are much smoother and the it takes the "springieness" out of the line so it doesn't overrun. Another plus is it really does makes your cast distance much further with little effort. As far as bang for your buck goes, if you do use Fluorocarbon, I definitely recommend the Bass Pro XPS. Hope this helps

Make sure when you spool the line onto a spinning reel it is not twisting, if so flip the line spool over. Also after you get the line on your reel, when out on the lake, let all the line out while idling along, this will take out any twists.

This is common. what has helped me with this situation is two things. 1) I fill my spool with the line, then i tie it off to an object and walk it all back off until i am down to almost the knot on the spool. 2) then, i pull a tight line and as i begin to reel the line back on the spool tight every 25-30 yards i spray some of the KVD line spray. This should help with both problems.

The line size maybe to large. I found 10 lbs test is the largest size that works for spinning gear. Another thing you might want to try is to put no more than 100 yards on the spool. I found that this helps too.

A: 
Make sure you are filling you reel in the same direction as the line comes off the filler spool. Start by laying the spool flat on the floor and stop after 20 or so handle turns and allow slack in the line. If it starts to tangle, flip the spool over on the floor and continue filling. Only fill your reel to about three quarters of what you normally do with mono. And with all lines, after making a cast, close the bail with your hand, not by turning the reel handle and this will reduce the amount of line twist.

A: 
The reason you are having this trouble is that the line is getting twisted. The natural movement of a spinning reel creates twist. Picture your line looking like a peice of licorice. Thats whats happening. Here are a few things to try.
- 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.

A: 
First; Make sure you are loading the reel spool in the same direction as the line comes off the feed spool. Second; Never close the bail automatically by cranking the handle. Always close it manually. If you have a reel with an auomatic bail trigger, get rid of it!Thirdly; Replace the line often. I usually don't use the same monofilament line more than twice. (two fishing trips). Catching fish is always better than losing tackle!

A: 
I use this line on my spinning rods with no problems, maybe you are spooling it on against the natural flow that it spools off the spool. Also I wouldn't recomend using anything over 8# on spinning reels. Spinning reels also create alot of line twist naturally that can be eliminated by placing your lure on a leader attached with a barrel swivel. remember to manually close teh bale of your reel instead of turning your handle to do this, it can cause severe line twist.

A: 
All fluoro takes extra care on a spinning reel because it has more memory than mono. Do NOT close your bail by cranking, close it by hand. Cranking imparts twist. If you fight a fish that pulls drag, that also adds twist. Certain lures (in-line spinners for example) add twist. Remove twist by dragging the line (without a lure) behind your boat at idle speed and crank it in.

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.

Braid has no stretch, fluoro has very little and mono has by far the most. If you are used to fishing mono, fluoro will seem like it has none. Fluoro is very sensitive. I prefer fluoro to braid since it is invisible and use it as my main line or as a leader tied to braid.

These days I only use mono for bobber fishing with my grandson for bluegill.

A: 
If you want no stretch at all, you want braided line. Floro, mono, and co-polymers are all going to have some degree of stretch. I have tried braid before for dropshotting for the same reason as you....no stretch and more sensitivity (actually, didn't care much about the stretch but wanted to have a more senstive line). Used it once and went back to my 8 lb floro because I couldn't feel the bottom with the braid like I could with the floro. I prefer, and exclusively use, Seaguar florocarbon more most of my applications.

Don't worry about what KVD uses. And I mean that in a good way. I was always a big Berkley fan, until I started using the BPS floro last year. It's an awesome combination of strength and castability and has little to no memory depending on the size. You have to give it a try on both baitcasters and spinning gear to really see the difference. By the way, KVD has been my source of info for years and I even got a chance to fish with him at Lake Champlain and Oneida Lake in Syracuse.

Yes it is better. Go to the Tackletour website and read their test results. They tested this and several other fluorocarbon lines that cost 3 times as much. They did about 10 different test and this line came out a close 2nd to another fluorocarbon line that cost around $40 for 200 yards. I did not think BPS made such great line until I tried this line and talked to others that use this and nothing else when using fluorocarbon. A lot better that Berkley !!

I have used Berkley Vanish and did not like it at all. I have heard good things about Berkley 100% fluorocarbon though but I have not used it, is an upgrade from the vanish. I just reviewed the XPS and really like it. It is made by a Japanese company that is the leader in the fluorocarbon line manufacturing. I will bet that Bass Pro shops has a deal with them and they just put their label on it. They do the same thing with their reels. Bass Pro Shops reels, Abu Garcia, and Pflueger all come out of the same "Pure Fishing " factory. Hope this helps.

Palomar is a super knot, but sometimes floro is unforgiving. I have used the palomar on smaller size line and used an extra tag to hold it in place. A dab of super glue works great. An improved cinch seems to work best for me, even a unit knot, wrapped 7 times has been good. Hang in there.

Palomar is the best, assess your casting method. All Fleuoro lines ,when they snap, usually snap at the knot under pressure. A person who has a tendency to cast hard or fast will exp this. Try smoothing out your cast or slowing down a tad. Dont forget to moisten your knot also, spit works best, pull the knot slowly till its cinched down. After the knot has formed only pull on the tag end not the main line otherwise you will fray the main line and weaken it. Hope this helps.

I started using a Eugene Bend Knot after a recommendation in Bassmaster Magazine from Shaw Grigsby. It's not a hard knot to tie and I have had ZERO knot failures on flourocarbon with it.

Yup, as long as you don't try to go to heavy. 6-8lb is good on spinning gear. I've never tried it in spincasters.

Yes !!!! I use either a #6 or #8 on a Quantum Energy spinning reel and never have I had any problems with this line. I use it in a small creek close to my home where small baits are a must and no complaints. After using this, it would be hard for me to recommend any other fluorocarbon for spinning reels since this line is so good !!!!!!!!

I have not used on spin casting. For spinning, the 6-8lb test range of flourocarbon is great. I have used the XPS flouro on various spinning reels with minimal problems. Use it for soft plastics, dropshot, shaky head, anything where you want good feel for your line and are fishing something besides topwater.

It depends on the depth you are fishing at. If you want your crakbait to stay up in the zone then go with 17 pound fluro. If your fishing deep go with a lighter line

A: 
As with all lines, the lighter the line, usually smaller in diameter, allows for better lure action. Always use the smallest line you can based on the cover you are fishing. For most cranking applications you can get away with 8# to 12# line. If you are fishing a lure that has one big hook in stead of treble hooks, you may want to go with 12# and heavier because of the shock from the harder hook sets.

A: 
Crankbaits will vary. I use anywhere from 10-20 for crankbaits. Heavy Cover (20lb) no cover and deep cranks(10lb) I adsjut accordingly. Line size dictates how deep the bait will dive.

Spinnerbaits-17-20lb becasue they are usually fished in heavy cover like wood grass.

Swimbaits-20lb because the fish you get on swimbaits are bigger and you are fishing heavy cover.

I THINK THE MOST OF THAT IS ABOUT LINE DIAMETER & DEPTH . THE BIGGER THE DIAMETER THE MORE RESISTANCE THE LINE ENCOUNTERS THE LESS DEPTH YOU ACHEIVE & THE THINNER GOES DEEPER. IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION.

I think it's all preference, however I would assume a stronger lb line for swimbaits would be necessary. I have heard many prefer monofilament line for cranbaits, as it stretches and will have a bit of give so that the crank bait does not rip out of the bass' mouth.

A: 
Floro is super for crankbaits. Depends on the size of the bait and how deep you want it to run. I use 12-14 lb for most. I use 17lb at times for swimbaits, especially if I'm looking for a strong, lower end attitude for the bait. Best way to figure out what you prefer is line a couple of your baitcasters with different size floro and try it out. I don't use floro for my spinnerbaits. A good 12lb mono works best for me.

A: 
IMO the most important factor is water resistance to the dia.of the line used. A deep diving crank will go much deeper/quicker on 8 lb compared to 25 lb.reverse it if you want it to go shallower.Also the dia. effects the action of your baits once again due to water resistance as fluoro sinks.I would never use fluoro on a top water bait with the exception of a buzz type.

A: 
I can only answer the crainkbait part, but fluorocarbon is great for this application since it will sink faster than mono and does not absorb water like mono does either. I would imagine that it would be the same for swimbaits and spinners since you are looking to get that bait in the strike zone and keep it there as you would when fishing with cranks !!!!!!!!

The difference is that different baits will have different action on different sizes of lines. You'll just have to experiment with different line sizes until you find an action that you are satisfied with.

A: 
I have 12 pound and 14 pound test in this line. My father in law bought me the 12 pound for Christmas last year and I really like the 12 pound for cranks. Some may think that that is too strong for cranks, but the many videos I have watched on crankbait fishing suggest 10-14 pound, with 12 pound being a nice happy medium. With cranks you want long casts to get the bait down to it's optimum depth, and with the smaller test it creates less drag coming through the water. Generally speaking, the smaller pound test should equal longer casts. For me, 12 pound helps me achieve that. Spinners, swimbaits, etc. you will want to go stronger, maybe 14-17 pound because you are throwing them around thick grass, docks, etc and want to be able to get them out of there and need a heavier line. And, with my expierience, casting distance isn't as important as with spinners and swimbaits, because you are throwing at thicker cover, generally in shallower water, where you need to keep the bait higher, and the thicker line helps with that. Hope this helps!

A: 
Generally speaking, lighter lures will benefit from the use of lighter line. Fluorocarbon is stiffer than the other line types, so you'll need to go to a light test if you're tossing finesse lures. On the other hand, a big jig or heavy spinnerbait will be able to "pull" the heavier test off of your reel much more easily. I tend to stick with 8 lb. for my finesse and small crank rigs, and 20 lb. for everything else...

No more than any other line at comparable test. For a flourocarbon leader when fishing for pike you have to use way bigger test, at the very minimum 40lb and I would use 60lb. You can buy it in smaller amounts specifically as leader material.

it depends on what size line you use, but more than likley not, you might be able to get away with more than 20 but i would put my luck in braid, or what you could do is get a wire liter with flourcarbon as your main line, that would work

THE ONLY COMPARISION I CAN GIVE YOU IS A BOWFIN OR MUD FISH. ON A SMALL DIAMETER LIKE 10-12 IF THE FISH GETS ADDED LEVERAGE AROUND A PEICE OF WOOD YOU WILL DEFINETLY GET TAKEN TO THE CLEANERS. A BIGGER POUND TEST LIKE 17 OR BIGGER MIGHT DO GOOD

We get a lot of chain pickeral up this way and they can destroy any line after one hit. The heavier the line the better, but again, that depends on your depth and the bait you're using. I've had good luck with the BPS line, although I can tell you I've lost baits to the "toothy ones" on all types of line. Better than average bite recovery with the BPS.

I am primarally a bass angler, and use this line on my baitcasters. Occasionally, I'll end up catching a pike. I know this like is not pike proof, but I have landed several large pike with this line. My biggest pike of the year was caught on a Strike King Red eye shad, and 17lb Xps fluorocarbon line.

A: 
This is my favorite fluorocarbon because it ties well and doesn't break off. I have been using BPS 14lb Fluorocarbon for the last 2 yrs and I have cought over 15 pike without retying. Other brands are different, but this brand is the best for pike in my book. When the pike bite,the line looks like string cheese after a long time. Then you know to retie. But when I use mono it usually breaks immediatly. Or even superline doesn't hold knot strength as well as this. This is your best option.

I think this line can because it is strong and a lot of people who don't use wire leaders, use fluorocarbon line as a leader instead. I think if you used this line, pike wouldn't know what hit them.
