any one ever use this?
why is it half the price of other floro

Don't even think of it total garbage not worth $1 let alone the normal cheap price. I tried this stuff and it was horrible it literally comes apart in strands. Seaguar or suffix is what I use.

I heard some ok things about it. I just got some Seaguar premier 85lb, it is great. Expensive, but worth it.

I tried it and didn't like it. Numerous mysterious break-offs...

I've used Berkley Vanish FC in the lighter tests (50) for striper fishing and it has performed just as well as the seagur at a much cheaper price.
The new high seas flouro should be interesting for tuna - I don't what most shops will retail it for- but the wholesale price is much better than the seagur.

I use it a lot. It works fine. I have read the other comments, but I can tell you that I have used it and have found it to be as good as Sufix or Seaguar. I have no problem with break offs or knots breaking. It is well priced, but so far the performance has been very good, and I have no complaints.

Why ruin your day with cheap tackle? Offshore fishing ain't cheap. I am not gonna waste 500 in gas, 200 on bait and ice cause I needed to save 10 bucks on a spool of flouro.

I was going to say yeah I've used it with no problem, but it's not "Triple Fish" -- it's "Team Fish," which is also cheap. See good prices here:

I totally agree with youngers ghost why spend all the cash on gold reels big boats to go blow it because of terminal tackle failure?
