P-Line CX Premium Fishing Line - 1000 Yards
CX is great!
I would agree with tnguardsman and Tom Sharp that CX is a great fishing line. I also throw a lot of small baits and drop shot with light line. The CX 6-8 lb. is great for this - it is limp enough work well on spinning reels and yet sensitive enough [must be the flouro coating] to feel a bite in 60 ft. of water. I used to be a big triliene XL fan, but CX seems to have much less line stretch than XL and low visibility in clear water.
With the heavier CX lines, I really like the visibility that CX provides when flipping, and I feel confident that the fluro coating reduces the visibility of the line [unlike my old favorite, flourescent Original Stren].
One other feature of CX is it's castability. I have less backlashes on my casting gear with CX than the CXX [which is definitely a stiffer line but feels more abrasion resistant than CX].
I am curious under which conditions "Brittle" is fishing under when breaking off his line.

Best "light" line ever
CX Premium is by far the best line I have used in light poundages, 8 to 12 lb test is awesome. I use the 8 and 10 on my spinning reel, 10 and 12 for crankbaiting because of its small diameter. I love it for cranking because its sensitive and the smaller diameter allows the crankbait to get to it maximum depth, especially important with cranks that dive in the 10' to 20' range. It is quite possibly the best combination of sensitivity from flourocarbon, and strength from other co-polymer lines.
It is also extremely castable because of its small diameter. Give it a shot, its worth every penny and then some. P-line is now on all of my reels, nothing else will do.

UNDER THE RADAR
THIS LINE IS THE MOST UNDER ADVERTISED LINE ON THE MARKET. I WAS TURNED ON TO IT A FEW YEARS BACK AND HAVEN'T REGRETED IT. VERY STRONG. HIGLY VISIBLE ON SURFACE AND INVISIBLE UNDER WATER. MY FISHING PARTNER WAS A DIE HARD TRILENE MAN UNTIL HE BACKLASHED HIS RIG AND HAD TO RELINE WITH P LINE. HE HASN'T USED NOTHING ELSE SINCE THEN. I HAVE 100% FAITH IN THIS LINE.

BEST LINE I'VE FOUND
ALTHOUGH TRILENE XL IS A LITTLE MORE CASTABLE THIS IS DEFINITELY THE TOUGHEST AND MOST OVERALL RELIABLE LINE I'VE EVER FOUND! 35 YEARS OF BASS FISHING EXPERIENCE SPEAKING.
