P-Line CX Premium Fishing Line - 300 Yards
I Bass fish on a regular basis on several different lakes through out Kansas and Missouri at least 3 to 4 times a week. I have used several different lines over the past few years and have finally dialed into a fishing line that I can count on for all my fishing techniques. Smooth casting, sensative and clear water is no problem. I use 8# up through 20# line and I am very pleased with its performance. P-line has really done their homework with this line and I wouldn't change the line on any of the 12 reels I use for my Bass fishing. Great job P-line.

Great for dropshotting
I have been using mono for a long time...I recently began dropshotting and have had mild success using the mono. It was time to switch to a fluoro or a hybrid.
I had a few people locally tell me about the CX and they really liked it.
I've had it on my spinning outfit for a month, and have landed more dropshotting fish than ever.
It's durable, casts well, and I have had no twist issues. I'm a believer. I can feel nibbles and bites better than I ever did on mono. I use the 8# and have pulled in a few 5# no problem.
I still use Trilene XT for throwing heavier stuff. But, for the dropshot and finesse fishing this stuff is the best!

Strong, but stretchy...
After reading some reviews looking for a good casting but strong line I settled on this in 8#.
I tied my first knot and noticed then that the line has a great deal of stretch to it. More than I was expecting. But after getting it into the water and getting a crankbait snagged on a fallen branch and pulling it out I must say the strength is good.
The line casts good, I am using an Abu Black Maxx. You don't really feel the line as well as I would've expected either. Its more of a dull sensation when you get a strike.
Overall I feel three stars is a good rating for a line with more than moderate stretch but good knot strength.

#1 in my book
If I could have only one line for the rest of my life this would be my choice. I have tried every line imaginable this summer. Everything from a $5 spool of Stren to a $48 spool of Tatsu. Super small diameter, strength, low stretch, sensitivity, manageability...can't ask for more. I have found no weak attributes in this line. A few other lines may have one area that is better than CX but the pros heavily outweigh the cons. The versatility is also amazing. It does just as well fishing shakeyhead as it does deep cranking. It's also very affordable.
By the way, don't hold a grudge with P-Line about CXX if you've tried it. Yeah, CXX is junk but CX Premium is a totally different line.
