XPS Signature Series Monofilament Fishing Line - 300 Yards
i have been using the 10LB test on my spinning
and wow. for the price you cant get better, with little issues, come on there is no perfect line, in my thought the strength and handling is great. it works great for leaders when i pre tie hooks for bottom fishing with 20lb mono main line.
to me the pros out way the cons, with the line, I hope the 12lb test work well as the 10 on the same reel
i hope you alest give it a try

Too Stiff and High Memory
Spooled this on BPS Qualifier PQ20 in 8# and 6# on my PQ10. Out of the box I noticed this line is extremely stiff and large diameter for 8# line. On the water performance was very poor. Multiple nests on cast both between guides and outside of the rod tip. It's line memory was too much and never improved after hours of fishing and being in the water, still looked like a old phone cord by the end of the day. I tried another spool of the 8# BPS Xps Mono and it was the same result. The 6# line I put on the lighter reel has been decent so far, knot strength is very good. The 8# however is not made for spinning gear IMO, would possibly work on a baitcast reel, but not many put 8# on a baitcaster.

best mono ever
I fish atleast every weekend and any other time i can. bought this line to put on a veritas/patriach combo i purchased and how suprised i've been. this is simply the best mono i have ever used. i used to only use berkely fireline on every spinning reel and tried this for the clearer water. after several outings the line casts perfectly, have had zero line twist, and more importantly has yet to break. this stuff is awesome, the line never knicks up and i've yet had to retie after catching a fish. for the price, i will never use any other mono. thanks bps.

when a bargain a not a bargain
There was a sale on XPS mono this spring so I loaded up on 12,14,17 lb test line. Good service, good price, fast delivery, it spooled nicely - but! After the first couple weeks of fishing, I was shaking my head at the number of fish I had missed. (One bass I actually launched airborn for 3 feet and he still swam off) The amount of stretch in this line makes is a poor choise for bass fishing. I went back to a different mono line and the problem was is solved.
