Rated 5 out of 5 by weedless1 Love this line I have been using Trilene for many years, it casts well, is strong, and has low memory. April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by bcooper8566 Excellent I've used all of the expensive braids, nono-fills, flourocarbons, and this is simply the best product for your money. It has little line memory, small diameter and casts very easily. #1 line for the money hands down. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jluther Best spin cast line for trout Easy to cast, very soft and supple. Perfect for small spinners as well as large stick baits. I prefer moss green and is the only line I use. I have tried many others brands and none of them compare. March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Red9654 Best line so far Over the last 2 years I've been trying a lot of lines to find what works best for me. after not having good luck with trilene big game i hesitated when buying this line but at the recommendation of a friend i went out and bought it. It is the best line ive tried. there is alomost no line memory. living in new york its very hard to fish in winter but we had a few nice days last month and i took out my pole and went to a local creek, no memory even after sitting on a reel for 2 months prior to that. it casts well and holds up to abrasions really well. and try not to get it snagged because it can be a ral pain to try and break if you forget your nippers. i will probably never try another line again unless they stop making this line!

Details:I've used both trilene and versions of stren and have had problems with line memory on both brands. what can I do to reduce this problem? it drives me nut.
A:You should take a large Pyrex glass cup nad fill it with hot water. Let the spool sit for around 2 hours. Take the spool out and put it on your reel wet. The memory will be eliminated and it will pack hard on the spool making it easier to fish.
A:Try some " Real Magic ". It works for me.
A:I spool my line to within 1/8th of the top of the spool. While spooling on to the reel, I spray the line with 'Kevin Van Dam Line and Lure' that reduces line memory.
A:It can be the way you are spooling the reel. If while you're spooling your reel & the line twists while going on, turn the line spool over & see if it fixes the problem.
A:The reel manufactures have made some major changes to the reel spools making them larger and as a result it keeps down the line memory issue.

A:OK, so here's how it goes with line: Stren is not good line. I have had various bad experiences and the abraison resistance is terrible. Trilene is pretty good, very low memory, lots of stretch, so it is not suited for frogging or jerkbaiting. With Trilene XL, respool every six months or so or it will start to knot and get a lot of memory. It is the same deal with most lines. I personally prefer to use flourocarbon or braid for all of my fishing. flourocarbon is great in thin weeds or in midwater presentations. For flouro, go with seaguar. they have the best. for braid, go with spiderwire or suffix. I prefer suffix for mono too. I have used many different lines and these consistently work the best.
Hope this helps,

A:When spooling your reel, make sure you pay attention to the line. Sometimes you'll start to get twist, at that time, flip the filler spool in the opposite direction of the twist. Also, reel the line through a rag soaked with line conditioner. It helps to keep the line form twisting.
A:Line memory can be compounded in a couple of ways. Make sure when spooling that the line it is unrolling from the spool and not looping off from the side of the spool. This will add a twist too the line causing it to perform as if it has memory. Secondly in cool weather use line recomened for ice fishing. For it is designed to stay limp. Thirdly line on the spool for a year or so un-used will get memory. This is true with any line. So re-spool often with the proper line for the season and do it properly. I hope this helps. I just wish I didn't have to learn it the hard way. Best of luck.

A:I like Trilene XL for spinning reels and Sten for baitcasting...Prefer Powerpro braid for both spinning and baitcasting reels.
Details:i would like to know wich is a better fishing line..........
TRILENE XT EXTRA TOUCH
TRILENE XL SMOOTH CASTING
A:Extra smooth cast very well and is tougher than anybody thinks.
A:XT stand for extra tough, it has a tendency to be a little stiff it works quite well on bait casters but it has a tendency to jump off of spinning reels. I like XL idt is not as stiff, I use XL on baitcasters and spinning reels.
A:i like smooth casting because it is as strong as cable but still is invisible and casts smooth each time. hope i helped
A:I like the XT. I fish a lot of structure. Both are great products. I will use the XL if I am fishing schooling bass when I need to make a long cast.

A:It depends what ur application is. if ur fishing in heavy cover use XT if not and wanna smooth casting and good sensitivity use XL
A:I have fished with both XL and XT lines. If you fish several days in a row all day long where memory and line twisting issues can become a problem, I prefer the XL Line.

A:XT for cloudy waters aand XL for overall fishing
A:No comparison.…buy the XL. It's just as strong as the XT.
A:I primarily use spinning gear, so for me, Trilene XL is the best choice. I want a smooth, easy, and accurate cast and I get it every time from this product. If I'm in an area where I worry about abrasion, I just run the line through my fingers periodically and re-tie if necessary.
A:Easy...XT is great if fishing near rocks,tree limbs,etc.-anywhere that something will contact the line. XL is great for wide open fishing or if your priority is castability.
