Sunline FC Leader 7lb

Used it for the first time this week, not impressed. Material is slightly softer than Seaguar STS, a hair thinner in dia to the STS 8lb...but abrasion resistance is not even close.

I was jig worming sparse millfoil, and my small loop knot would cut open on the jig line tie, just snapping through grass. These are keitech super round jig heads, the eyes are not roughly finished, and I've tied the same loop knot in 6lb Seaguar leader with no issues. Lost 4 jigs the same way...lost another 3 to small pickerel...this is not normal for the way I fish.

I like the suppleness, hopefully it's just a bad spool. Anyone else have experience with FC Leader in 6 to 8lb test?

I had the same exact results with 18lb. Broke every time I set the hook. Threw it away after the second trip and went back to Shooter. Better line for the same price.

Very interesting.

Is Shooter more abrasion resistant than Sniper? I like that 7lb dia...

I have no experience with anything lighter than 14lb, but Shooter is a lot more abrasion resistant than Sniper. 7lb shouldn’t be any different. Shooter is pretty much as close to a true leader line without being marketed as leader line.
