Long Term Review
I've been using Trilene XT for over 10 years now, and it has never let me down. I fish a lot of slop and heavy cover, and this line has performed every time. I have even landed 3+ pound bass and discovered a few nicks in the line in the first 6 feet after landing the fish. 14Lb is my go-to line, and we usually have to cut it if I do manage to get hung up. That, or I end up reeling the boat to the snag so I can get my lure out! Great line, great price, and I highly recommend 10Lb & up.

Best line ever
Tried other lines before XT but will not use them anymore , XT is hands down the best mono line that I have ever used.

I tried the XT a few years ago and I didn't like it. The XL is very limp, casts great, and is an all around nice line. The XT is way too stiff and I didn't find it to be any more abrasion resistant. If you are looking for a really tough and durable line that is still easy to work with, try Maxima Ultragreen. It costs a little more but you get what you pay for. Be aware that Maxima is not as limp as the XL when you first spool it, but it will relax a little with use. It is however, ten times tougher than the Trilene XL. I hope you find this helpful. Good luck and happy fishing!
The problem with the color red is that while it does filter out in about 3 feet of water, it leaves the line looking grey and not invisible at all. I tried to like Cajun Red Line but for my money, Trilene anything in low-vis green is the way to go unless it's gin-clear water. There's a school of thought that says clear/blue flourescent is the way to go in super clear conditions.
i believe the red line's " low vis " is mostly in a saline situation . as far as prismatic visability in fresh water ? i have used it , have i caught more fish due to that ? i truly do not know , but i have used red braid line in fresh water and will say it might have put off a few bass in the shallow's . i repeated same trail with mono and had several catches with same lures . my belief is i think if its there and its hungry a reaction bite will occur either way ?
I think red is not a good color for a line. Of course you'll catch fish on it. but it will be more visible to fish. In muddy water it's not that important, but in clear water, during the day it will be more visible. At night or in lowlight red is the first color to "disappear" and we (and fish) see it as black or a dark color, so, it will be more visible. The best colors for line are clear and green. I prefer green because it doesn't reflect much light, so it will be less visible. Also most lakes have green weeds and green algae, so the line virtually disappears. And even ultra clear water has a green taint to it, so green is always a good option. An even better option is camouflaged line (with sections of different colors). If you can find a line you like in camouflage, then buy it!
