flouro leader advice needed

No to Vanish. Bought a spool of 8lb test a few years back. Got it home and peeled some out. Grabbed hold of the end and gave it a yank. Snappped like a 4 lb test. It went from there into the trash and took my losses. Pline 100% flourocarbon has been doing it for us for the light line Browns. Haven't tried the heavier stuff yet but when a Brand of light line is good usually the heavy stuff is good to.

Yikes!!! Maybe thats why Berkley is changing the name next year to Trilene Flourocarbon (new formula hopefully) I must say I have used 2 lb and 4 lb for perch and smallys without too many problems but I do remember it breaking a few times. Ill take your word on the heavy stuff. I wonder how Cabelas Flouro works???

As far as I'm concerned seaguar is the best bet. I have landed many steely over 15lbs on 4lb seaguar after they ran me through all kinds of rocks and snags. Seguar line is just plain tough, I've been amazed at the abuse it can take and still hold up.
