World Wide Sportsman Camo Fishing Line - 1-lb. Spool
I like this line
I bought this line on sale in 10 and 15 lb. strengths. I've been very impressed with it. I've only used it on spinning reels but I've been extremely satisfied with its knot strength, abrasion resistance and lack of memory. (It doesn't curl up when casted)

I have 15 year old Stren which is better
Seriously, I do. . . .I have been fishing for more than 40 years, and this is BY FAR the worst line I have ever fished with. I would have given 0 stars but I can't.
Knot strength . . .I can't tie a series of dropper loops in this line. I did a test and it appears to be random over 7 to 10 ft there is a section of line that just can't hold a knot. I have had seemingly good clinch knots fail. I have to use a 50%+ more loops with Improved Clinched Knot, Spider Hitch, and various loop knots. Snells seem to work well.
Memory . . . .this line has serious memory issues. Even with a tuned magnetic casting reel, I can see problems during the cast.
Abrasion Resistence. . . . seriously, this line has worse abrasion resistance that 15 yo Stren. I have to cut 4 to 10 ft of line off after a day of catfishing over a sand bottom, no snags. After 10 casts or so, I notice abrasion that is not present in the 15 yo Stren.
I have used this line in 6, 10, and 15 pound tests and found these characteristics in these three tests. It is not appropriate as main line nor a leader material.
I bought several spools of this stuff and I am going to see how much of it I can return, even if I have to pay shipping.

First time in use and lost two really big bass. The line was shredded for about 4 feet from the break, so guess it's abrasion resistance is poor.
