P-Line Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
best fluorocarbon line ever!!
P-line is the best line in the world. All these other companies including stren and berkley spend 90 percent of their money on advertising their product and therefore don't spend the money on actually making a good product. this line is no different than the other lines that p-line make, and by that I mean that it is great. It is limp strong and has an amazingly thin diameter. I've tried ALL the other lines ever invented and I PROMISE that P-line makes the absolute best lines on the market. I would be willing to bet money that this line could pass certain quality tests including overall strength better than any other line, not just mono or fluorocarbon, but braid too. Try p-line and you'll never look back.

worth the extra effort
My preferred method of fishing is light line and small lures. For optimum success you must have a line with low stretch, high sensitivity, good knot strength, abrasion resistance, low visibility, and small diameter for maximum castability. I have tried every kind of line, and each had one or more serious drawbacks. I had settled on P-Line Premium for awhile and was satisfied with everything except the stretch factor and sensitivity. I had tried some fluorocarbons but found them highly unmanageable on spinning gear. Then I tried P-line fluorocarbon. I am hooked! You must get used to keeping in touch with your line on the cast. It will spiral off the spool, if you are not careful. KVD line and lure conditioner helps, and you cannot overfill the spool. Overall, it is worth it!.

fluorocarbon fishing line
I have tried may brands of fluorocarbon fishing line over the years. This is one of the best I have found. Been using it for about 8 years. It has a little too much memory and will break when backlashes. It is also a little too expensive for what you get. I recently purchased a roll of Berkley's Trilene New 100% Fluorocarbon Professional Grade and I like it better. I probably will change to this new line. It is less expensive and a better product for the money.

Good line, but not low stretch
Although I have never had any problems with Vanish, I decided to try P-Line after hearing so many people recommend it over Vanish. After trying it, I did not have any problems with the P-line, and I did not see any differences between it and Vanish while fishing.
Then I decided to compare several lines against each other to see how they did in strength, knot strength, and stretch. I compared Vanish, Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon, P-Line 100% Fluorocarbon, and Trilene XL mono, all in 8 lb test. To sum it up, all of them broke at weights higher than 8 lbs, all of them broke over 7.5 lbs with a Palomar knot, and all of them stretched about 13% under a 4 lb load. I don't know why they advertise fluorocarbon as being low stretch, but it has just as much stretch as mono. After testing them all, I didn't see any significant differences between the different fluorocarbons. They are all good lines, but I will stick with Vanish since it is so much cheaper.
