Been using Berkiey Trilene fluoro but not that happy with it. Seams brittle at the knot when tied to braid with a double uni knot. What are you guys using.
AGREED! this is why i re-spool my salt water reels every year. the line comes off in fall and new stuff goes on in spring. im not quite as anal with my fresh water gear, but the salt water stuff is a different story all together.I think fresh line kept out of the sun is best.
I would delete the swivel and tie the flourocarbon directly to the main line. We do this on our light tackle Mackerel setups and we catch some pretty good fish generally.I dont know of anyone who uses flourocarbon as their main line. I use clear blue Berkley trilene XL on my light tackle rods with a 10-12" long 30lb flourocarbon shock leader. #8 Spro swivel to connect them.
