Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra-Soft Line is specifically designed for spinning gear, with a supple nature and low memory. Because Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra-Soft Line is made from a unique blend of nylon and fluorocarbon, it is amazingly soft. But don’t worry—Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra-Soft Line is tough, too, with excellent abrasion and UV resistance. Engineered to stretch less than monofilaments, too, with a slick finish that makes long-distance casting a snap. Waterproof nature guarantees 100% of its dry knot and tensile strength.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassanovaa great line
I've used this line for the last 6 years. Actually, I have one reel with 6 year old line on it.(I know it's not recomended) It still performs well. I can't part with the smoke color. This line is bulletproof. I fish it in lakes and rivers. It's strong, sensitive and an all around great line. I've tried many others, this is the best fishing line I've ever used. I wish the smoke color was still available. It's the only line I re-spool with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edpinc Yo-Zuri Ultra Soft
I started using this line in response to very 'high-memory' flouro lines that worked poorly in cold conditions. Yo-Zuri Ultra Soft did the job. In fact, I now use it for my year-round spinning applications.
Supple, very castable, strong knots, abrasion resistance, relatively inexpensive, small diameter. I've been turning my buddies on to this product, usually after they see it's on-the-water performance on my rods. "Hey! How'd you do that?" :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack28 Best mono ever
This mono is very though on sharp teeth and is stronger than the pound test indicate.
Really, I do not fish with another mono than this one.
Mainly for smallmouth bass fishing or walleye.

Yes, this will work for plastics. The answer above from h1gh3agle states he has used them successfully with 5" senkos, weighted and unweighted. You should be able to use any plastic that you normally use when fishing your spinning tackle.
It has a low sink rate. You can still use this line with poppers, stickbaits, pencilbaits and crankbaits, ect.. I've never had an issue with this line when using topwaters or shallow runners. If you're still worried then I'd say stick with mono so you can fish your topwaters with more confidence. This line works great with 5" Senkos wacky rigged weightless or weighted. This is a good all purpose line.
The Yozuri Hybrid is a monofilament line coated with flourocarbon for greater invisibility than mono. But like mono, this line (as well as other "hybrid" lines) will float. Hybrid lines tend to be a bit stiffer than mono, but usually has better abrasion resistance. This newer version of Yozuri is more supple than their original Hybrid line, and is better suited for spinning gear.
The Yo-Zuri hybird is a coplymer line - meaning it is a blend of monofilament and flourocarbon elements. It is stiffer (not as soft), so a little harder to fish. It will last longer on a reel, but will have less durability in the water and is less sensitive. The hybrid will also be more visible to fish. It is also "bulkier" - thicker line per # of test. I tried 2 spool of Yo_Zuri and ended up throwing half of each one away - the price and strength was good, but the "fishability" isnt as good.
