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.

Save your Money!
Absolutley the worst line I've ever purchased. The knott strenght and abrasion resistance is extremely below par. The second night I used this line, after the first cast the line's memory looked like it had been on the reel all winter. Save your money and by someline that won't break everytime you attempt to set a hook.

This line is tough and durable, has superior knot strength and can handle everything you throw at it from bouncing jigs on rocky bottom to fishing spinnerbaits in stickups, line doesn't build memory like other lines I have used.

This is an excellent line for all applications, fresh and salt water. I fish spoons and soft plastics on 12 lb. test, and top waters on 15 lb. test. No problem with Pacific sailfish down in Baja on the 20 lb. test. The line has an good blend of abrasion resistance and controlled stretch, and the larger spool make it a good buy (no wasted partial spools).
