P-Line CXX X-tra Strong Monofilament - 260-300 Yards
cxx is on the stiff side but that is to be expected from an "extra tuff" line. it does have good knot strength, abrasion resistance, and not much stretch. my big knock on it is its huge diameter to breaking strength ratio. 15# cxx is bigger that some 20# pound tests of other lines i own. i just don't see the point of using this line anymore when i can use another line that has a larger breaking strength, same diameter, and is just as abrasion resistant.

I've used this line for two years now and yet to lose a fish do to bad knot strength or just broken line. I have a 16 ft boat and if I get a snag I pull anchor and use pole and line to get the boat to snag. Yeah it's that tuff, Ive also straighten hooks before losing a lure do to snag. All this and I only buy 8lb test. Great casting with light lures has some memorey until it hits the water a few time. Buy it you won't be dissappointed.

I purchased this line to put on one of my bait caster's and it just spits off of the spool. This line has a high, high rate of memory. The best way I found for it to quit spitting off of the spool is "close" the reel and loosen the drag, at which point you can pull out the kinks and re-spool it. It has decent strength and good knot strength. This is the first time I've ever use P-Line and the last time. I should have bought Trilene XL.

Strong but too stiff
P-Line is just plain weird to me. While it's strong and abrasion resistant, it also acts line the nylon version of a wire spring. Some knots (like the Uni or Fishin' Fool) won't always lay down correctly because they get twisted up while being tied. It also takes a bad memory set on small spools requiring you to replace it more often than other lines.
For a similar type line, I think Izorline Platinum is a better overall bet.
