Tuf-Line XP Indicator Braid - 300 Yards
The line's strength is not an issue. It does easily twist around the end of my rod. I used it jigging for Kokanee in 100' of water. Was very disappointed when I spooled it on my reel. The colors are not prominant at all and seem faded. Very hard to distinguish changes. I had high hopes when I saw this line come out. Hopefully I just got a bad batch. I won't buy any more until I see some changes.

I haven't tried a lot of different lines, Im not rich and Im new to fishing. Just started this year... I bought this cause I thought it would be handy (the distance indicator) and because it would be strong, as I fish Pike. I went with 30lb test which was probably overkill... Line is very visible, for stupid fish like Pike its perfect. Havent tried trout but... My guess is it would be useless. INCREDIBLY strong. Unbelievably so. Unfortunetely it's very slick, I casted out once and my finger caught on the line and I got a very deep clean gash from it. So be careful. But it's fantastic, this wont break. Tough to tie because knots do slip, just gotta find the right knot though, I did and haven't had trouble.

Great Stuff !!
Like how it changes every 10 feet, Berkley's is every 25 feet which is too long. Berkley has a hash mark every 5 feet that you can't see.
Indicator with it's distinct color changes makes it possible to run 3 plugs exactly same length from boat when plugging in the Northwest, this forms a wall of death that frightens fish to strike.
As it comes in larger quantity it is relatively inexpensive. I also use as backing on ALL my reel as it last for years & doesn't get kinky as mono or Floricarbon does. With it longevity it may not be more expensive in the long run. I have over 80 reels and this saves me a lot of time.
Think there is only two good braids on the market and this is one of them. As a depth marked line this is the best period.

This line is a must for those who saltwater bottom fish where often the targeted fish is suspended above the bottom. It is easier to put the bait at the correct depth with this line.
