Western Filament's Tuf Line® XP is a small-diameter, Spectra braid designed to lay evenly on the spool. Tuf Line XP is produced under a high-tension process allowing for greater compaction of the fibers, making it stronger than other braids. Tuf Line XP's advanced finishing process also produces a line that boasts higher abrasion resistance and near-zero stretch with excellent knot performance.
I bought 300yds of the 30lb green line almost three years ago and it has performed wonderfully since then. It was the first brand of braided line I used and will be the last as long as the quality remains the same. I haven't had any breaks like other reviews mentioned. The color does fade rather rapidly to white, however I didn't think that warranted a loss of a star. I've caught plenty fish on the old white tuf line.

Having used about all the different braided lines while trying to find something that would give good service on both spinning and casting reels, I think this is the only one out there that does both really well. I don't have the twisting problem with this line that other lines give me. The diameter is a little larger than other lines of same strength. I have no problem with knots holding. I really like this line!!

Tried to tie a fluorocarbon leader to 50 pound braid and it broke everytime. Tied uni to uni, modified albright, and others, different leaders, all broke. Tied same knots with Power Pro and had no issues. Also, the color is misleading Moss green. Very faint green that fades after 1 trip and it basically white line.

excellent line choice
I purchased the line for bottom fishing in 100 to 300 feet of water and the small diameter or the line allows me to use less weight and I am able to feel the bites much easier.

I'm looking for a combo with the right line that can hold big fish. I'm planning on getting 65 lb. braid with this line and putting it on my billdance river catfish baitcast combo if I get it. If it would work good with it I would like to know if it needs backing.
I use the 65 pound test without backing, I tie the line on the spool and place a 1" pice of tape on the spool to hold it in place. I troll big lures in rocky waters and when they jam between the rocks and the drag is screaming the line has never budged on the spool for me.
Just bought some 20# pound tuf line? I'v heard mixed reviews! I float in the french broad river for smallies with 8 pound fluoro. line. The last time I was out I cought 30 or so but lost two 5+ pounders, they got me over and under some rocks it was a heart breaker! Im fishing with a Pflueger Trion GX-7 Spinning Reel - 4735GX. I'm tired of losing hogs and 8 dollar lures! Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
It is brilliant because i find it much easier to work with than mono. Birdnests are inevitable while learning a baitcaster and I have had little problem sorting out a mess on the rare occasion it happens. I tends to stay on the spool better when there is an over rotation. I find mono likes to jump off and add to the mess. plus this stuff is indestructible. You will not lose lures.
