Default Seaguar flouro 80 - strong stuff

I bench tested my seaguar 80 flourocarbon line.

Wanted to see if I could break it and I couldn't. It stretched and took on a curly shape but it wouldn't break by hand. I didn't have a scale but seems like strong stuff.

If a fish stretched the line like that I would change it out for sure. It's interesting because I'm not used to flourocarbon as I always used mono in the past. There appears to be a more considerable amount of stretch.

I used an Albright to connect it to my hollow core dacron. The splice thing confused the hell out of me and I needed to get my setups operational. Plus my wife always yells at me when I have my big fishing rods out so it was get it done mode.

Anyone else using this stuff?

I don't think it has more stretch than mono. But I've never done a detailed comparison.

It's expensive but it's worth it.

I was told by a commercial guy that seaguar is the only true fluorocarbon. Cant remember what he said the differences were but it is definitely harder to see in the water compared to ande flouro!

It just has a great feel to it. I was always skeptical about flourocarbon.

I'm hooked. Even with 80# the knots hold tight.

I have used Seaguar Fluro for years. It is great stuff. I use it for all my leaders but on the 80# I use crimps for bottom fishing. I find the 80# very stiff. It will hold a knot though crimps seem to work better for me though.
