Silver Thread® AN40™ Fishing Line
Been a user of Stren Original Mono almost forever but have been testing out new lines looking for more strength and casting distance. Tried several other types of Fluoro, Co-Poly and Braided. Saw Silver Thread AN40 at my local BPS but didn't pull the trigger on it, I did some research and checked out BPS reviews and other reviews/comments from around the internet and almost everything was positive feedback. I picked up a spool of 8 and 10 pound test. In comparison to Stren Original, the 8 pound seems like the 6 pound Stren, the 10 pound the same as 8 pound Stren. I found the strength of the line and knots (Trilene Knot) to be superior to Stren Original, I was able to pull several snags free while Texas Rigged without popping the line. Spooling was easy (follow their directions) and I have had no line weirdness, unraveling, twists etc. Casting distance is excellent and better than Stren Original. I didn't use any line conditioner for either reel and don't recommend it at this point either (that's another story). This Co-Poly is now my go to line for 8 and 10 pound rigs for use in clearer water. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

super thin, great strength, low memory
Best copoly I've ever used. For such a thin line it has tremendous strength. I trout fish in a very rocky fast river, this line has never let me down. Great knot strength also.Price is right also. If you like copoly's give this a try.

A bit stiff!
I like this line for trout fishing, it hold a knot well, cast great, sensitive, but I find it's a bit stiff! But other than that it's a great line!
