Seaguar® Tatsu™ Fluorocarbon Line
I was so curious about this line I'll give an honest review for others who want to know if it lives up to the hype. I paired it with a Stradic 3000 and a G Loomis Bronzeback and I was using the 10 lb test.
Extremely strong. Over the course of 3 days I only lost 2 jigs. The line is so strong it would bend the hooks straight and still hold the knot. Also landed some big small mouth and the line held them.
Senisitve. Quite sensitive for 10lb test. Landed 30+ small mouth over a few days. Fished it with jigs, senkos and other soft plastics. Very easy to detect hits.
Casting distance is average for most fluro and it comes off the spool nicely with little memory.
Cost. Self explanatory.
On the 3rd day I did develop a loop in the line that required some management. After 3 days of constant use I expect to encounter some problems but overall it was minor. I can't say for certain if this will become an ongoing issue.
Overall I will continue to use this line for clear water small mouth fishing. I cannot stress enough how strong this line is which might justify the purchase for most. In terms of sensitivety and casting distance, its probably just a bit better than most flurocarbons on the market.

Seaguar fluoro, still the best
Perfect for tying onto braid. I use seaguar fluoro for all my fresh and salt water fishing. It's strong yet supple enough to tie.
Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the price which coupled with Bass Pro shops shipping and handling charges made it the most expensive line I have ever purchased.

Ranks right at the top
There are so many types of line you can buy today. Depending on the application, fluorocarbon, in my opinion, is really the best way to go no matter what. I have used several different brands, my favorite, and most reliable, has been Gamma 100% fluorocarbon. Only problem is you can only buy it online, can't find it anywhere in stores over 6lb test. Instead of spending the money for shipping, I decided to give this a shot. I was shocked. This has to be one of the top 3 fluorocarbons on the market. If you ever had an idea about using this type of line, please, don't go cheap, spend the extra $8-10 bucks and try this, you won't be sorry.
