Default Vicious Flourocarbon Leader?

Does anyone have experience using this flourocarbon? Price seems very good, wondering how it's held up for you. Normally use Makai or Seagaur but for the price of the 110 yard spools I'm willing to give the Vicious a try.

I have never heard of them before , just ordered a spool of 40lb now . Not sure when I'll be using it , but will report back . I usually use Yozuri or BPS brand (made by Seaguar ) , hopefully it works out .

Got a bunch of it while back and have used it for inshore bottom fishing rigs. 15, 20 and 25#. No problems

I've used their fluorocarbon main line before and it was fine. Don't see why the leader wouldn't be just as good.

Good to hear , would much rather buy it in bulk spools . Have way too many small spools floating around my garage .

It's great. I bought some off ebay. I tested the breaking strength compared to seagar and yozuri and it broke much closer to its rating than either of the others..... and I mean much closer. I tested with fg knot and palomar. Tested 40lb size. I'll see if I can find the sheet I wrote all the breaking lbs at for each...

It might be made by the same manufacturer as momoi flouro. The plastic spool is the exact same, just a different sticker. I ran out of the vicious and am currently using all momoi right now. Will go back to vicious when I run out... no issues yet

Another very good option is Seaguar STS. It's less money than the vicous, and breaks above the # rating.
