Most manageable fluorocarbon?

Post by Draethe84 » Fri May 06, 2016 4:47 pm

Hey guys and girls,

Today I am looking for the most manageable fluorocarbon, I will be using this with a Daiwa T3 in 10lb... Also i prefer prescision wound because its a nightmare to spool unprecisely wound line.

It doesn't get any better than Tatsu from my experience.

Same. It's the only one I tried that doesn't seem to want to explode into an unmanageable mess

Of the ones I've tried, Sniper. Can't talk to Tatsu.

I haven't used Tatsu, but Invizx is noticeably more manageable than Sniper.

I had a bad experience with Super FC Sniper, it was wound on to my spool by a correctly tightend spool tensioner and still every time I casted I found there were plenty of kinks and overruns under several layers of line.

I've used sunline fc sniper, toray and seaguar red label, invizx, abrazx, and tatsu. In my opinion, tatsu is the best flourocarbon line out there right now. It's just expensive but it's well worth it. I've fished 4lb, 8lb, and 10lb tatsu so far and its castability, memory, and abrasion resistance is top-notch. If you're on a budget, then go for fc sniper or seaguar invizx. Otherwise, go with tatsu.

How would something, say the JDM fluoro lines or Seaguar InvisX go?

Just get the Tatsu and be done with it. You're not going to find a better line.
