Not Good, It's Bad and Ugly.
Been wanting to try other types of line, I've been using Stren Original mono forever which never gives me any issues and just tried Stren Magnathin mono which is ok. Tried the Seaguar Red Label fluoro because of a few recommendations and the price point. I put 15lb test on my Shimano Syncopate spinning reel, didn't have any major issues spooling it up, even used a small length for a leader on a reel I keep braid on. That's where the fantasy ended and the nightmare began. First of all this stuff is LOUD when casting, louder than the heavy test braid I use. It also has a mind of it's own. If I didn't quickly close the bail by hand when the lure hit the water this stuff just started uncoiling like a cobra going after a rat. Several times I had to stop fishing and untangle a huge rats nest before I could reel in. After about 10 minutes of this I switched over to a different rod so I could fish. When I got home this stuff came off my reel before my muddy boots came off, that's how bad I wanted this stuff gone. I read the reviews and saw the good and bad about this. Guess I'll add the UGLY. YMMV. Best of luck.

Good Inexpensive Fluoro
I've used the 8, 12, and 15 lb tests of Red Label Fluorocarbon and it has been exceptional. It is very sensitive and holds up to wood cover very well. It is much better than other cheap fluorocarbons on the market and best of all its pretty easy on the wallet. The only thing I have noticed is that after a few fishing trips it turns a milky white color and loses its "new feel,"

Breaks at the worst time
I loaded this up on tow of my baitcasters. It didn't break at the knot but at the end of a cast. Both of the lines broke off right at the reel on a cast. Luckily I was able to get both lures back. I loved it up until the breakage.
