Built to deliver the super strength and durability needed when fishing around rocky ledges, heavy weeds, docks and rough brush piles, this abrasion resistant Trilene XT monofilament line excels in heavy cover. An excellent high-performing, low-memory line that casts very well and won’t put a large dent in your wallet, this mono line is designed to allow you to get away with some incredibly dicey casts.

by AJHauser Decent Line in a Pinch
This is a decent line in a pinch, here's why:
THE GOOD: The line is strong and abrasion resistant. I have had no real issues when tying on fluorocarbon leaders with back-to-back uni-knots, or knot strength in general.
THE BAD: The line has a thick diameter, probably due to whatever makes it abrasion resistant. This makes it rigid - and whether you spool this loose or tight, the right way or the wrong way, at some point you are going to have line jump the spool. When I use anything over 12 lb. test, this problem increases exponentially. The rigidity also impedes lure action.
THE VERDICT: If you are doing any sort or long distance casting, or looking for mono to put into a baitcast reel - go with Trilene XL, NOT XT! You could do much worse, but for me I now spool up with the appropriate weight line in XL no matter what.
Heavy cover or not - I haven't looked back once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by emax19 hands down...best mono
i've been at this for 35 yrs. it's just the best all-around mono you can get. with all of the other stuff i need to be concerned with while fishing...my line should not be one of them! i use 6 and 8 lb test for my clear water lake and have found that the low-vis green just 'disappears' in the water!! very important ! great stuff !!

This line is tough! I use it for striped bass. It does the job well! It is a bit stiff, doesn't cast that far, but that's just me! It does have a bit of memory, but it is abrasion resistant, Not much for saltwater use. That's why I went to Trileen Big Game.
