this is the only line I buy. tried allot of different fishing lines in the past. this is my number 1. I love the way it casts, caught allot of trophy size fish with this line. It's tough also, fishing around trees, grass, rocks. I will never buy any other line. Trilene XL (x-tra limp) for smooth casting and less twist. I fish at least 3 to 4 times a week. I usually put new line on my reels each yr. but, with this line if you should forget, like I have. You don't have to worry, it will hold up for at least 2yrs. I know from experience.
