Maxima® Line Maxi Spool
Maxima is always my top choice of line for any fishing conditions. I have used it for years when i lived in michigan and now i try to use it when i can in wyoming. I have used other brands because of my remote location where i live and have lost many fish because of it. I spooled up 2 poles and have been raking 4-10lb mackinaws in ever sense. I love this line and will order online and wait for the good stuff rather than buy inferior line again

Maxima Leader Diameter vs. Lb Test
Several years ago, a major fly fishing magazine tested leader lines by knot strength, lb breaking weight, diameter, etc. Maxima consistently tested stronger than rated on label because it measured a larger diameter than printed on label. Listed 6lb was actually 8lb, listed 8lb was actually 10lb, etc. In other words, they under-rate the line strength and diameter. Go one size down in Maxima to match other leader brands to equal aprox lb test.
Maxima is the leader material of choice with a fluorocarbon tippet for most steelhead and salmon anglers in the Great Lakes Region.

Best Fishing Line there is!
I have once again confirmed that Maxima Fishing Line is the best monofiliment fishing line available. I was unable to get it locally here in the San Diego area and was forced to settle for an alternate product. Needless to say the alternate product didn't live up to it's hype. It broke regularly, it didn't meet it's advertised weight requirements and cost me a number of nice dish the very first time I used it. Upon finding that the Bass Pro Shops still carried it, I promptly stripped all of the other product off of the 4 reels I had put it on, 2 of which hadn't even seen the water yet, and ordered enough new Maxima to fill those four reels back up. The day following receipt of the new Maxima line, I went fishing again with the new line wound on the reels and caught some of the nicest fish I have caught all year long. It casts nicely, to me is almost invisible in the water and most importantly, didn't break while catching fish at or larger than it's rated line strength. I will never again use any fishing line other than Maxima no matter how long it takes to find it!
Thank you Bass Pro Shops for recognizing that Maxima is a line prefered by serious fishermen!

Good, but not as good as cameleoon color
Green color stood out a little more than the cameleon line color I'm used to. The cameleon is a superior color when used in tanic stained water. Line performed well, was strong and no surprise "break-offs". Didn't carry the cameleon when I ordered, so went for the green which will be an excellent line for non-tanic colored water. Very little line memory and a good line overall. Went on my spinning reels without any line twist which is bothersome with some lines.
