Fluorocarbon Leaders

Recommended Posts

Yup, I've always been a Berkley line guy, but vanish is junk, all it does is make your tackle vanish when it breaks, go with either Seguar or Gamma and you'll be happy.

I had the same problem. If I tied it to a swivel it was fine, Tied it Back to Back and it broke at the knot.

Pline Flourocarbon (the 100%) and a double uni works great for me, even with braid, never cut it, break offs happen at terminal tackle if anything.  No revelations here just chipping in with everyone else.

 

p.s. and every break off I've looked at has shown evidence of abrasion, the knots have not failed.

Mikey I usually leader down to 10lb fluoro for browns and 20lbs fluoro for salmon. Small spro barrel swivel to connect To the main line mono. As far as brand I've had luck with Seagur , triple fish and hi seas. No problems with any except the berkley vanish. Like most have brittle and found the line to break easily. Good luck to you and I'm sure ill be seeing you up in the Mexico area again soon. Good luck with the new boat.

Vanish is aptly named - fish vanish when using it. I only use Seagar and P-line flourocarbon.
