P-Line Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is constructed of 100% pure fluorocarbon crystals, ensuring unbeatable knot and breaking strength. This premium P-Line Fluorocarbon Line has a refractive index similar to water, making it virtually invisible in water. Plus, the line has low stretch and little memory, allowing increased sensitivity to detect the light bitters. UV resistant.

Great line! I use it to make crawler harnesses for walleye fishing and as leader for lead core. The "stiffness" of the line transfers any twist to your swivel, which eliminates line twist, increasing the longevity of your crawler harnesses. It's also easy to tie your snells. In addition, it makes excellent leader material for lead core trolling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexMac Favorite Fluoro So Far
Let me begin by saying that I feel line is the most important component of an angler's gear. So I generally try lots of different lines. This has been the most reliable as far as handling, knot strength, and memory thus far. I use it on all of my plastics/rubber (not frogs), finesse jigs, cranks and spinners.
Comparisons: My impressions vs. other products. Just my opinions...
Much more knot and abrasion friendly than Berkley 100% Fluoro.
This product handles better than Invisix.
This product has much better knot strength
than Sunline's baseline (blue packaging) FC.
This product has much less memory when compared to Sunline Sniper.
I will also take this opportunity to state that P-Line mono is my least favorite line. I use Sufix 832 Braid and Seagar mono, so I really don't have brand bias. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IceInTheVeins Strong, Low Memory, Dependable
This fluorocarbon is the best I have used. I have never had an issue with it breaking, as I have landed many lake trout in the 7 - 37 pound range through the ice jigging with the 10 pound test. It holds knots well and is pretty limp. Great for jig and plastic fishing for bass too. Low stretch means better sensitivity and hooksets than mono.

I have been using the P-Line mono for years for my crappie fishing and it works great. So I tried the fluoro and it works great for bass too. I used the 8lb for my spinning gear and 12lb for my baitcasters and was surprised at the strength and the low memory. Never broke even when I was caught on the rocks and pulling like mad to get the snag free. Awesome line and will be using again.

It doesnt work as well as baitcasters but if you use a line conditioner as you spool it on, it helps with twists, though doesn't completely eliminate them. I have found that by placing a small barrell swivel 12-16" above your lure helps a lot also.
It is a little finicky at times.... What I do is after spooling up with new line I drag it behind the boat.... let all the line out with nothing on the end of the line and just drag it for a few minutes to get any twist out.... once I do that I have no problems.
I would say, if you are looking to use 100% fluoro on a spinning outfit...p-line is probably the better choice. I personally use P-Line FluoroClear line on my spinning outfit and it works much easier than 100% Fluoro. FluoroClear is coated and has enough stiffness to set it ahead of mono without being too stiff for a spinning rig.
Yes it will but like any fishing line you should always check before and while you are fishing to make sure there are no bad spots. Check your fishing rod guide also for groves and rinse your rod and reel with fresh water after using
I have used 20 lb mono on some inshore fishing around the Florida Panhandle. I think it holds up pretty well unless you're going after redfish or bigger species. But pair it with a good rod and reel, and it would probably land just about anything.
P-line has a softer feel to it ( I think). I just reviewed the P-Line fluro here. I've used both extensively...and P-line in my opinion just feels better on the reel. I use 12, 15 lb P-line. XPS is close but seems to have more memory and doesn't last as long. P-line is easier to cast and less backlashes than any other fluoro I've tried.
P-Line is relatively stiff but works great on baitcasting equipment. I always shy away from using fourocarbon on spinning tackle because it likes to get twisted. Using 12 lb P-Line you can cast a crankbait and almost spool the reel. I have used XPS and it seems to get a little discolored and brittle quicker than the P-line
I'm sure this is not the complete answer you were looking for but, I didn't like either one on my spinning rods ( lighter tests weights ) and I did not give XPS a very fair shake as far as baitcasters. I did go with P-line and use it almost exclusively on my baitcasters. I have tried Suffix Flouro and I think that it is softer than P-line and I do use it and trust it - on occasion. Hope this helps.
Hello Sir, Unfortunately this line is no good for ice fishing at all, it holds water and freezes like crazy, unless you fish inside hut. Memory is not bad, but this line holds water and freezes all the time. If you want to use a fluorocarbon through the ice, try out P-Line's Fluoroice, it is a fluorocarbon coated line but has all the great features of any ice line, and it doesn't hold water! Give it a try!
