Soft, castable and virtually invisible to fish, Seaguar®'s high-performing INVIZX™ Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is ideal for both spinning and casting reels. Made from 100% Seguar resins, INVIZX is super strong yet sensitive enough to transfer light bites while offering advanced hook setting power and outstanding knot strength. INVIZX is also UV-resistant, abrasion-resistant, impervious to cold conditions and suitable for freshwater and saltwater. 200 yard spool.
In the constant quest to find the best quality fluorocarbon line on the market I decided to try the Invix by Seaguar. I had tried the Red Label about 4 months ago and was not impressed at all. The Invix had some decent reviews so I wanted to give it a shot. I am glad that I did.
I bought the 12 pound spool of 200 yards. I have had some issues with Fluorocarbon in the past which left a bitter taste in my mouth. Main thing is line memory. I cant stand it. One of the reasons I use primarily braided lines. However with some very clear water lakes that I do fish, I needed something that would not be as obvious in the water as braid is.
I soaked the main spool for about 3 days in line conditioner and applied it liberally when spooling up. There was still a large amount of memory after 2 hours of use. More than I really like to have, but fluoro is not braid and I can't expect it to be. However compared to the previous fluorocarbon lines and mono lines I have used, it was much better.
I have used this spool hard for about 3 months now and it still is going strong. I do have a good amount of memory, more than I had when I spooled up initially, but its still much better than before. The 12 pound is very strong when running treble hooks. I am able to bend most out when I get snagged to free my lure, but when using a large jig or Texas rigged hook, its not as strong as I need. I think going to a 15 pound or higher would be better for heavy structure. I check my lines after each outing and so far the Invix is holding up well.
While the Invix is not braid, it handles much better than most brands of Fluoro on the market. I would recommend you give this a shot.

Love this line
Best fluoro I've used. I dont mind spending a little extra on line b/c I don't wast/break off alot. This ivnizx is still pliable and easy to work with. Ive heard the red label is more abrasion resistant but less pliable (better if around rocks). This is all I need and love it. I bent out the hooks on a cotton cordell trap freeing it from a stump w/ 12lb test.

Super thin and sensitive line
I love to jig deep water for smallmouths and Fluro works well for this applicatiion. l have switched over from Vanish to Seaguar Fluro and have been pleased with the diameter and sensitivity of the line. My only complaint is that the last two spools I purchased were supposed to be 200 yards but only filled one spinning reel that is rated for 100 yds of 8 lb test. At 20 bucks per spool I would expect to get the correct amount of line that I paid for!!!

I purchased BPS brand XPS fluro first in 6 lb test for a drop shot/plastics rig, and could not keep the line on the reel.
Took it back and bought inviz x in 6lb test. It will jump off your reel but not nearly as bad. To solve this problem I add a little less line than I normally would. In one days use it's perfect.
No line conditioner used and it has lasted me the better part of 1.5yrs. I did re-spool it backwards half way through the year (half of the line never sees water anyways).
Drop shot/plastics have been my go to setup so it has seen much abuse and in a very rocky/weedy location. Landed a 4lb LMB last week on this well abused line.
No regrets from a budget minded, weekend fisherman.

I am looking at buying this line to use on my dedicated weightless senko rod. I had bought 15# test and my rod wont cast it. Seeing all the positive feedback on this line what # do I need? Or is there a better selection for my application? 6' st. croix avid w/ quantum pti a reel.
I found the Seaguar line more castable than a couple other floroucarbons I've used. However, I suggest you consider changing the rod for that setup. I do a lot of fishing by pitching a weightless senko on places with snags and pilings, like the Potomac River, and I like the 15-lb range for my line in my rig. What works for me is a topwater rod. I use old Zell Rowland models that All-Star used to make. They're in the 6'6" to 6'10" range. Yes, they are a little light to be pitching with at close quarters, but they do the job, and the tradeoff is that they provide excellent control of that weightless lure.
i dont think that there is any difference, i use braided line and in clear water the fish dont like to see it. by adding 6 feet of flourocarbon it seesm to increase the bites i get, double check the knots between braid and flourocarbon.
Not much. The main difference is the line weights they come in. The leaders will generally be available in weights up to 80-100lbs, maybe more. The line usually is available in weights up to 20lb. I actually use line for leaders in situations where you don't need a super strong leader. I never fill a reel spool with fluorocarbon. It's a waste of money.
I have always believed that the only difference between the regular spool and the leader spool of any type of line was the length of the line in the package. Leader line is packaged in a shorter length so you don't have to purchase a full spool to make leaders.
There is no difference between the two as far as what they are made of. One is all of the line on your reel and the other is a certain length (leader) of line attached to your main line usually by means of a barrel swivel.
While not true for all fluorocarbon Seagur InvizX is thinner the mono. The 10lb is the same size as 6lb Suffix Elite. That said, don't waste your money spooling up a complete spool of fluorocarbon. Use it for leader material.
I myself am using smaller test with this line. It just seems to be stronger than mono of the same test. However, this line in the same pound test is usually smaller in diameter. Example- Invizx 15lb. is the same diameter as Trilene 12lb. mono so if you were using Trilene mono just changing to Invizx in the same test would be like going down a line size.
if you go with the same # test you were previously using you will be able to get a few more yards on than you would with mono for example I have 8 pound mono and the diameter is .011 Then I have 10 pound fluoro and the diameter is .010 I hope this helps you answer your question
I would use a little heavier pound test than if you were using mono. It is practically invisible, so a little bit of a larger diameter won't hurt. It has lower stretch so it is still sensitive and won't break as easily.
