Western Filament Tuf Line XP - 300 Yards
"This line is without reservation, the best braid I have tried thus far. It has fantastic abrasion resistance, behaves completely on a spinning reel and has gangbuster strength.
The 20# Green I use is excellent for river migrating Stripers in the 28" plus range and stands up to the incredible fighting strength of this fish. It is very resistant to abrasion from rocky bottoms and has not "fuzzed" thus far after repeated use. The weave is very tight and it does not unravel. It's easy to tie and holds a knot exceptionally well. Use a Palomar and don't worry about knot strength.
The color stands up very well with no real rub off. Very controllable on the spinning reel. Good sound.
This is a QUALITY line that deserves to be near the front of the pack.
I think I've found THE braided line I will now use."

Love this stuff!
I have used the braids of Suffix, Power pro, stren, spider stealth, Fireline, and excel, this is the tops for me. I actually got a spool for free and tried it out. It is VERY limp and soft right out of the package, with no break in period. It holds its color better than most. My main issue with power pro is its large diameter, they say it is 12 lb diameter but you can only get 80 yards on your baitcaster, this is a very small diameter line. There 40 lb line is the same diameter as the others 20 lb @ .009. Great all around line.

Just returned from Cuba and used W/F braid for first time. Trolled over reefs and thru mangroves. Landed several toothy creatures and W/F never let me down. Even wound up spending hours casting with same set-up and again, no problems.
Next trip all my reels will be loaded with W/F.
Best product, and best price.

Falcon Lake Tested
I bought this in 50 pound test for my spinnerbait reel. Let me tell you that I pull bass out of the brush with ease. This line is so tuff that when a bass gets stuck to brush or anything under water. I wrap some line around the boat cleet and put my trolling motor on 5 speed and yank roots and fish all at once. great line.
