Seaguar AbrazX Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
This is my second year using the Abrazx and I haven't found anything to complain about. Although it is expensive compared to mono, most 100% fluoro costs about the same. I find this line has incredible abrasion resistance, and prefer it over Trilene and Berkeley Vanish. I haven't tried Sunline yet and Seaguar Tatsu is out of my price range, so no comparisons there. But I have pulled this line out of the mouths of pike and pickerel, and seen it wrapped around teeth, and only had one or two breakoffs ever. I've seen all I need to see. In circumstances where I don't need as much abrasion resistance I've been using Seaguar Invizx with good results.

Thin but STRONG!
I've always used the 'Invis-X' from Seaguar, and have had great experience with it, so I though I would try this new line, and I was very impressed! First of all, it's a little less expensive, but I was really surprised at how thin for the lb.test/diameter ratio, and was convinced this would make it weaker, but I happened on to a real good 'Bite' location, and was hooking up virtually every cast! I used it on my 'Worm' rod, and throwing a suspending pointer on another (which always gets slammed HARD!), so I was surprised at the impact strength...I used cheap lures at first...just to be sure, but then had no reserves about using more expensive lures (no fear of loosing one).
If you're looking for a good floro line, I would recomend trying this one.

Great Inshore Line!!
I have used Berkley Vanish Flourocarbon for a few years now and have been satisfied with its performance, but I wanted to try something new and picked up a spool of this. Its wonderful! I just got back from my first flats trip using it. It has wonderful knot strength, will not break, and casts a mile. I was using the twelve pound test and caught everything from seatrout to sharks. Never once did this line break. I fished for over two days and caught over 35 keeper trout and this line never let me down. I am buying another spool for my other reels the next time I am in Bass Pro.

Poor name 4 this line
I spooled 15lb AbrazX on my med action rod and liked it at first. The line casted nicely and has less memory than Vanish. But after moderate use I noticed a couple nicks. After cutting out the bad spots I continued to use and have broken off several fish, none of which at the knot! I feel this line is the most prone to abrasion I have used. Not sure where they came up with the name!?*$ Way too expensive for poor performance!
