What's y'alls thoughts ? Is it as good or better than Big Game ?

Super Natural is softer and a much smaller diameter than Big Game for the same test rating. I don't care for the dark green color of Super Natural. It needs to be lighter. I would fish the clear over the dark green if you are fishing the top half of the water column.

Thanks , Todd. I picked up some 20 lb clear , it's the same diameter as 15 lb big game. Gonna try it on my worm/senko rod.

I like it but as otherwise stated you need to go up in LB test rating. I normally throw 10 or 12lb mono (Trilene XL) and I had to go up to 14lb super natural. Good line for the money as long as you are aware of the diameter vs pound test rating compared to other lines.

I never have used this line. I'm too stuck on original Defier. If I made the switch, would I be -
1) OK
2) Somewhat satisfied
3) Moderately disappointed
4) Monumentally pissed off

In my humble opinion...

3) Moderately disappointed
or
4) Monumentally pissed off

Now, in Super Natural defense there isn't anything 'bad' about it. But comparing it to Defier isn't fair. They're on a different level. Defier you fish until you know you shouldn't and then you swap. Super Natural you fish until you realize you have to check it constant then realize you have no choice but to swap for fits of sheer safety. String it up, fish it, no worry. But it won't last long and it's not as reliable. But it's cheap, which from cost perspective is not such a horrible thing. But you won't necessarily save money while running increased risk of potential breakoff. Again, just my opinion, but I did give it a run and my spools didn't last very long. I used both in several test at one time or another. Cost difference or no cost difference I would chose Defier.
PEACE

I change line often. Probably just spool up this worm rod with Sniper next. Wanted to try this out because it was cheap lol.

There’s much better mono and copoly available that’s priced the same or better. Defier is great line but the price is a huge negative for a mono

That's what I was thinking , a lot of money for mono. I'm sure it's good stuff though.

Subjective, though I'd like to hear which lines you're referring to.

I'll mention two of my favorites-sufix elite and p-line cxx.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
