Fluorocarbon-silicone coating virtually eliminates water absorption
Up to 30% less stretch than average lines
P-line's CX Premium Fluorocarbon Coated Line is one of the most innovative lines available, combining copolymer and fluorocarbon technologies. CX Premium eliminates spinning reel line problems with its low memory and improved limpness. The combination of low memory and limpness also improves casting distance with a baitcast reel. The fluorocarbon-silicone coating virtually eliminates water absorption so cold water and weather have little effect on line performance. With as much as 30% less stretch than average lines, it has increased sensitivity to detect and react to even the most subtle strikes. 300 yards.

I was looking for a monofilament that had low memory and small diameter. This stuff is amazing. I use the 8lb test on my spincast reels and 15lb test on my baitcast reels. I can cast it a mile and have yet to have any twist issues with it. If you have never used it, I would definitely recommend trying it out.

Was throwing a weightless senko on the 12lb version. Broke three times on the hook set. Further examining the line, i found out that a simple tug would break it. Plus the memory is bad. Not recommended at all, try suffix. The only reason i gave it a 2 star is because of its invisibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coldfisher best line ever!
This line is awesome! I have the four pound test and it is really thin, strong, and casts like a dream. First time I used it my Mom, brother and I were fishing of a bridge. I had just caught a small sunfish, and my Mom wanted to catch one too. So, I let her take my rod and walked away. Suddenly, I looked back to see my mom swinging a big chub up over the bridge rail! The line took the stress easily. I was amazed. I would buy this again, in a heart beat!

I fish this line in very clear water and I don't believe visibility is a problem. You are more apt to scare the fish with water displacement so I suggest you use the smallest diameter line you feel comfortable with.
Have just bought a box of 12lb test to re-line one of my BC reels. Use spinnerbaits quite a bit and this is the first time I have even bought this type of line and don't know much about it. My concern is based on reviews I've read this line sinks fast. I like to keep my SB near the top and want to know if this line will pull them down?
Not really, it doesn't sink like a 100% fluorocarbon. I fish 100% fluorocarbon on my spinnerbait rod and can keep it up top if I want so you'll be fine. CX Premium is a good line. It's small and strong, but it does inherit some fluorocarbon qualities. It's a little stiff, but that won't bother you with a baitcaster.
After trying dozens of lines the two that I like the most happen to be floroclear and CX. I do not know the specific differences between these two lines but it must have to do with slight differences in the materials used as the advertised diameter of CX is slightly different than floroclear for the same test rating. They both advertise as flurocarbon coated which makes them more slick than non flurocarbon lines. This makes it necessary to use the correct knot or it will slip. I had this problem initially when I used the clinch knot. P-Line recommends the palomar knot, the knot I now use and I have no problem with knot slippage. In fact I am very impressed with the knot strength using this knot. I preffer floroclear as I do not have problems with line twist like I sometimes do with CX, but I am very impressed with both lines when compared to other lines on the market.
If you mean "Does it reflect light under water" I am sure it does some. Even pure fluorocarbon is not "completely" invisible underwater. But I Trout fish with this line in 2# test and have had no problems catching Trout with it in the moss green.
Am using 12# CX on spinning reel. Line spooled on reel 4 months and had 3 breakoffs of fish less than 2# at knot after tying with improved uniknot. Always wet line before tie, and cut off 2 feet after each use. Love the way CX casts, remains limp, and avoids twist, but loosing confidence with strength at knot.
You need to use a "Triple loop knot" it is almost required for this line. What you do is feed the line through the eyelit three times and the wrap the line around the main line six time and then go back through the loops and pull it tight and there you go
just use a simple palomar knot and wet it well... it will hold and you have 95% knot thats fast an easy to tie and never slips out. this line also seems to hold well with a improved clinch knot too but I dont trust that knot with any braid or FC or in this case FC coated lines...the UNI is a great knot and you shouldnt be having problems with it... but like i said the Palomar knot is a fail safe and you can also go double palomar if you dont mind a little more tying time.. I use the Double palomar knot for braid and single palomar for FC lines.
I prefer the Palomer knot with this line but it should not break under the conditions you speak of. It is possible that you have a bad batch of line...it does happen. I have landed over a hundred White Bass with the 4# on a President spinning reel, and many of those fish were in the 3 pound range.
I use spinning reels 5 days a week for a total of about 240 days of fishing a year. It is the best line I have ever used on spinning reels. It is limp...casts great...no memory......and it is super strong! The 8# will cast like mono 6# on your spinng reel.
I just put it on a Daiwa Pixy BC reel and as soft as it is ide say it would work beautiful on a spinning reel... plus my dad uses spinning reels some times and he says its the best line hes ever used on one.. he says it handles even better then XL or Stren on them and its a FC coated line!!! thats impressive... I fish only Sun line FC Shooter or Daiwa braid but I spooled the pixy with this because how good my dad say it is and im impressed... its rock solid on hook sets to very little stretch and a very tough line indeed! buy some im sure you will enjoy it.
I would go with a high test line, like 15-20lbs. Actually, that's what I use for my top water lures(such as a Vixen or a Spook) and it works great. Its actually only a fluro coated line, so it still has more bouyancy than 100% fluro does.
I havent used this line much but it doesnt sink like 100% FC so it would work well im sure.. it does have very little stretch like FC lines so be sure to give the fish a little long to get the lure in its mouth before sitting the hook so you dont pull it away! if you want a great top water line that I can assure you works well for top is Stren magnathin.
this line is as supple as they come.. I just built me a new Pixilla on a Airy Red Daiwa Pixy and tried a spool of this because my dad loves it I bought 8# and this line is amazing on that bait caster so I would bet it will work awesome on any bait caster.. this line is VERY low DIA. its amazingly thin and cast like a rocket on the Pixy but that reel is in a lot of peoples opinion the best bait caster ever made so it cast any line well... but with it being so soft and thin it will cast great on any reel.
