Seaguar Kanzen Braided Fishing Line
I have been using Seaguar Floro for a number of years. I started using the Kanzen Braid approx 2 1/2 years ago. I switched to 80# Kanzen after testing a spool. I fish lots of Hvy cover with an Extra heavy rod at Falcon lake paired with 80# Kanzen and have not broke a fish off yet that wasn't my fault...YOU MUST RE-TIE!!! Biggest so far is just over 13#'s.
I also flip lots of heavy reeds at several power plant lakes. I have had to tie off to a cleat before in order to get my tungsten back because I'm hung so far back in the reeds...Have straightened lots of hook!!
I have had no issues and really like this line. I have had some break problems with a couple of other popular brands, but the Kanzen has not done me wrong yet.

Not as strong as its labled..
Ok, I'd like to first of all say I haven't actually fished with this line. After I purchased this line I saw some bad reviews about the strenght.. I got the 40 lb line and was gonna use it for flippin' and throwing A-Rigs. So before spooling it up, I decided to do a little testing to see just how strong it is.. I tied it to a lure and then tied the other end to my scales. Pulled until it broke, and it consistanly broked at around 21 lbs. And never once at the knot, always in the middle of the line. Again I was pulling even pressure not jerking or anything crazy. I did this on a digital scale and a spring scale, both were around 21-23 lbs. Again I bought the 40 lb line!! So I'm still undecided as to using this line, or buying another brand. But if you're looking for a good fluro Seaguar is the best I've used, the Red Lable is supper strong for its size, which is why I was so disappointed in this line.

I tried the 20lb and didnt care for it.. it broke on me several times with a hard hookset. Now the 50lb on the other hand, is the best ive ever used. Im a flipper by nature. I set the hook, crank em and swing em in. This 50lb with my 7 ft heavy all star rod is a perfect combo. Used it all season, throughout probably 20 tourneys, and I think it may have broke once or twice. Its so tough that it would NOT break when hung up, had to cut it. 5 stars for the 50lb, the 20 is real thin diameter, and just not my style of fishing

A better braid
After three fishing trips this braided line has performed better than all the other braids I have tried including both types of Power Pro making it worth the higher price.
It has maintained its coating and therefore casts longer distances, and is less prone to backlash.
I am going to BassPro tomorrow and plan on buying more of this braid.
