P-Line CXX X-tra Strong Monofilament - 260-300 Yards
The line is strong, relatively abrasion resistant, but it has exceptionally high memory which makes it almost impossible to use with spinning reels for anything other then a leader.

best line ever
I've tried many lines over my years of fishing, but this line holds even after finding it a year later deep down in my tackle box. I bought the 17lb line.
So, I used this line last year because it was recommended by a friend. After trying it, I was amazed at every aspect of it. For my Daiwa Procaster baitcast reel, it casted the longest out of every line over 10lbs I've tried so far. I've tried the Stren High Impact 15lb, the Spiderwire Ultrabraid 17lb, both Berkley's Firelines 12lb, and the P-Line Flouroclear and this line still beats them all in casting, memory, durability, knot strength, and line strength. This monofilament line is tougher than the braided Spiderwire Ultrabraid I've used.
I can tie any knot to this(preferably the Rapal knot) and no fish would be able to tug it off. With this line (even after a year) I've been able to haul in catfish, walleyes, and pikes with only one line break! This line has amazing strength and durability even after it's old age.
I would recomend this line to any fisherman because it would outcast, outstrength, outknot, and out-everything compared to any other line! Get it!

Great fishing line
P-Line is my line of choice. I do mostly panfish and bass fishing, and I love the 4 to 15 lb test line. It's extremely strong stuff, even the lighter line is very difficult to break.
The 6 lb test line can easily haul in a large bass without breaking the line. When hung up in brush, it can be quite difficult to break off the line by force, with just 6 lb test.
What I like most about this line is that it doesn't kink or "curl" up in a spiral when casted.
The line has a bit of stretch in it, which helps keep it from snapping off, I've never lost a fish due to the line breaking. (I've lost some to bad knots, but never to weak line).

P-Line Extra Strong Mono
I have a love hate relationship with this line. I love it's strngth to diamerter ratio, which is important when you're shore fishing for salmon as I do in Chicago. The hate part is what another reviewer mentioned, birdnests and tangles. I've discovered that the line is very sensitive to lure size and drag setting, much like if you were using a baitcasting reel. Now I know that those of us who use spinning reels often do so to avoid the hastles inherent in using a baitcaster. But if you don't use a lure that's too light for the line weight, and set the drag accordingly, you can be rewarded with longer casts, and strong hook-sets. I'm ordering more today....
