Yo-Zuri's Hybrid Line utilizes a high-tech fluorocarbon and nylon combo to deliver an incredibly strong, exceptionally durable line that's suitable for any fishing conditions. Extruded under extremely close tolerances to ensure uniform diameter and strength, Yo-Suri Hybrid Line is then run through a double finishing of fluorocarbon to create the most abrasion-resistant yet sensitive line you'll ever use. Yo-Zuri Hybrid Line is even waterproof and impervious to UV rays.

My go to Fluoro!! Been using this line for years now and have never been disappointed! The line had a very high breaking strength and tends to be very abrasion resistant. I've never lost a fish that I could blame on the line. HIGHLY recommend!

I have this spooled on my spinning gear in 12# test. I use this for my "heavier" baits. I use a palomar knot and have had very good results. Super strong and reliable line.
I also use Real Magic on all my lines / reels / spools so I experience less line memory than without it.
For the record I use Yo-Zuri Hybrid in 12#, Spiderwire EZ Flouro in 10#, Trilene XT in 6# and PowerPro braid in 50#.
Yeah, I spend a lot of time at my local Bass Pro Shop.

Best small line ever 4,6 pound But then it becomes to stiff 8,10,12 once you get to 15 pound it becomes useable again and hands down the strongest line on the planet

This is the only line that mixes naylon and fluorocarbon well, then covers it with true fluorocarbon, it ties knots well and is clearer than mono and good for 90% of lakes But super clear water like 10 feet visabilty you need to go 100% fluoro
It is like fluoro and is nearly invisible in the water. Switched over to this line for river fishing walleye and smallies this year. It outperformed my other fluoro 2 to 1 in strength. Hold's knots well too.
This line will probably be the best line you'll ever use. I use it to sight fish and use the Camo Green and it does not spook the bass. It is a Hybrid line of Fluorocarbon and Nylon. It's the best of both worlds and I've not had any problem with any line breakage or weak knots.
I tie leaders on my braided lines. I use 15 lb fluorocarbon or Yo-Zuri Hybrid. I used 12 lb Yo-Zuri Soft Hybrid recently with 30 lb Spider Wire Stealth main line. The Yo-Zuri I bought a year ago. The line broke on two different hook sets. Don't know if the age of the Yo-Zuri factored in to the break off at the knot. I stepped up to 15 lb. regular Yo-Zuri or pure fluorocarbon. Make sure you tie a good double Unit-Knot and use saliva to cinch the knot. Try to break your 12 lb Yo-Zuri with your hands and test your knot well. My 12 lb line broke too easily. Also, going from 40-65 lb braided to 12 lb leader is a pretty extreme difference, that's why I went with 15 lb.
in my opinion this line hooksets better than most toher it just fells so smooth andeasy to set the hook with this line and intesead of kvd conditioner i use real magic i highly recoommend it and i hope this helps bassman 8
if your line is breaking on hook sets it may be because your doing whats called "burning" your line when cinching it down to hook eye. you have to remember this is fluorcarbon and not mono. Fluro is more senative to burning than mono. Just make sure your wetting the line real well before cinching it down.
I use the 4# on my light weight combo ( G.Loomis GLX rod and Quantum PTi-10b reel). I live on a stocked lake and have caught at least 2 dozen fish so far this season. Mostly bass, but a few decent size chain pickerel. I have not had one snap off yet.
To answer your question, yes it is good for catfish. The line is not too stiff, but for casting wise I would step down to 20#. with my experiance with this brand the 20# test will be equal to 25#-30# test in some other brads
honestly it is a bit stiff and casts decently but its not the best out there if ur looking to cast frogs without braid in thick cover this is ur friend hope this helps Escar I thick u will befine if you but the 30lb on ur catfish combos
Yes because Yo zuri is has a break point of about 5 or 6 lbs more than the lb test. Great line. You could probable get by with 25lb test, but its up to you I use 40lb mono on my catfish rods and never have had but one break it but the fish got hung in rocks so if you might have that problem I was use Braid .
I really love the Hybrid 10#, but have a new 600 yd spool of Ultra Soft in 12# and I am having a huge twist problem on spinning gear...any ideas or is is this the weight & Ultra Soft characteristic??/ Did I load the reel incorrectly?
As you tie to your spinning reel turn spool flat end up, start reeling stop after 5 cranks and see if it twists up, if it does flip over spool and continue this way line comes off twisting same as it goes on reel,never wind it on like a baitcasater
Put in on the way it comes off the spool. Once loaded on the spool, tie the end of the line to a statiionary object like a fence post and walk out some line and lean the rod and reel against something to take out the memory. Best to do in warm weather.
Uncle Ted, unless you are using a large arbor spinning reel, the 12 lb test is a little heavy for a spinning reel. I usually go no heavier than 10 lb test personally. The next area to look at is how you are spooling the line. Your line should come off the filler spool the same way it loads on the reel. In other words, if it's a spinning reel you should allow the line to come off the end of spool with it lying flat on the floor. A baitcasting reel would require the line to come off with the filler spool revolving in parallel with the spool of the reel. Lastly, make sure your bait or lure selection is not the cause of your line twist. Floating worms and other unweighted lures are notorious for causing this problem. The addition of an in line swivel may solve the problem for you if that's the case. I hope I have helped. I've found the Yozuri Hybrid to be an excellent line.
If you haven't already, try closing the bail of your reel by hand. Letting it automatically close will add twist to your line. I'm assuming this is pretty twist-sensitive so anything to minimize it is a plus.
