P-Line Floroclear Fishing Line - 260-300 Yards
best line on the market
Holds good, cast farther, less breakage and good knots. Very sensitive. Have fished other high end line and p-line out performs the rest.

My Favorite Line
I have been using this line for 4 years now and love it i have tried to upgrade to fluorocarbon but when i did and spend 20$+ for it it was not even as good as this. this stuff is limp and durable i have caught my 2 biggest largemouth on this line and it was fine. its just a great line at a great price

I have been using this line for two or three years now. On a whim, I decided to read the reviews for P-Line FloroClear and was shocked to read a number of bad reviews. I love this line and have not found any other line that approaches what this line has to offer. First of all, it is very affordable. Next, it is extremely limp and has virtually no line memory. The more you use it the better it becomes as it seems to get even limper as it breaks in. There is no need to soak it as one reviewer did and IMO that probably is why he had such bad luck with it. I have never had problems with abraision in my Ohio and great lake fishing experiences. The line is as strong as the pound test indicates. Why would you want to buy 12 lb test that breaks at 15 lbs? Just buy what you want? Anyway, I prefer the mist green and would love to see that offered in the 600 yd size. Knots are not an issue either. Any knot I've tried had performed well with FloroClear. Thanks!

No break strength
I was looking for a new line for top water that was a cross between mono and Fluorocarbon. I wanted a line that didn't sink like Fluoro, had less stretch than mono and was abrasion resistant like Fluoro. P-line fluoro clear was recommended by several people. After spooling up once, I realized this line is about as strong as baby hair.
Initially I soaked the main spool in line conditioner over night. Spooled up a bait caster using 12#. Before I hit the lake I wanted to test it out on some casts in the back yard. I was trying to find a line to replace braid for top water as I have been getting robbed on distance with braid. I tied on a lure using the San Diego Jam knot that I have used for Fluorocarbon and mono lines for some time. I moistened the line and started to cinch the knot down. Line broke before the knot was tight. Broke just at the knot. I thought it was the knot and retied. Each time the line broke just below the knot. I checked the line for kinks, cuts, wear marks etc. Line was brand new and had not seen one cast yet. I changed the knot up to an improved clinch knot. Same deal. Line broke with little to no pressure when cinching down the knot. I tried a total of 4 different knots and same results.
Most 12# test lines have a breaking strength of 15 pounds or more. They all should have a breaking strength of at least 12 pounds. I tied the line to a 5 pound weight and lifted it up. Line held just fine. Then I used a 10 pound weight as I only had 5 and 10 pound weights. When I lifted the 10 pound weight up, the line snapped before the weight was even fully off the ground. The weight was lifted very slowly as it not cause a jerking motion. Tried this 5 times and each time the line broke before the weight was lifted fully. I can't say what the breaking strength was of this 12 pound line, but I can say its no more than 10 pounds. Just to make sure my weights were not off by 10-12 pounds, I tested it with some 12, 8 and 4 pound test mono and some 10 and 12 pound fluorocarbon lines. Even the 4 pound test mono held a 10 pound weight up with no breakage.
Its sad because this line went on the spool and laid flat like no other mono or fluoro line ever had for me in the past. I had really high hopes for this line. It was recommended by several people at Bass Pro and other places however after reading all the reviews on this line, I should have stayed away from it. I hope Bass Pro will accept a return on this otherwise I'm out 10 bucks.
