Good line, but if you are used to cortland, the thinner diameter tuff line will take some getting used to.

I bought some tuf-line this year after using Cortland the last few years. I think the line is great and seems to not flatten out as much so far...

I have used it for years...went away from it last year to see if I was missing out on something...and it's back on my reels again this year. Very manageable and hasn't failed me yet.

I like the thicker diameter because it doesn't bury as deep or cut itself during backlashes. A quality line that holds it's shape and color.

If you picked up the regular tuf you'll want to remove it before the cold water season, that stuff retains so much water it's crazy. I put it on a reel and used it for an outing I was soaked, got home stripped it off and tossed it.

Hopefully your experience with it is better.

That depends on which tuf line you have, I believe they have a coated model which i've used and it doesn't bring much water in. (until the coating wears off like all the other line i have)

There are a couple of Tuf-lines that I'm aware of.

The line that has black specs in it holds the water. The black is Dacron.

Go to the pure white and it holds much less water which is really nice come fall.

It's been a great line. Only one I've used, but no issues and it's pretty good when I have to pick out backlashes, too.

The TUF I was running was the white with black specs.

Up until this year it was Power Pro for me, this year I'm running Stren Super Braid, found a TON of it for a more then fair price, and all my reels needed line replacement any way.

Was a huge TUF-LINE fan for many years. Biggest drawback was the water retention issue. Couldn't stand to fish with it in the fall. Would make your hands freeze in a heartbeat. Last year was sold on Spiderwire Stealth and have it on all of my reels. To me the performance is just all around much better.

Its good line Ive used it for years but last year I spooled one with Masterbraid, this year I have 4 spooled with it including my wife's, she liked Tuff line because it cooled her hands in the summer but last week she was happy it wasn't Tuff line LOL.

Both are good but I'm really turning to Masterbraid Bronzeback.

I use Tuff line. Had used the regular Tuff Line ...white with black specs.... for a few years and did like it other than the water retention. For the last 3 years have used the Tuff Line XP and really like that as it is a waxed line and don't carry the water in nearly as bad.

    • License what technology, this kind?        https://www.google.com/amp/www.cnbc.com/amp/2017/04/27/after-vws-record-fine-mercedes-benz-parent-daimler-could-be-next.html     "In light of the ongoing governmental information requests, inquiries and investigations, and our own internal investigation, it cannot be ruled out that the authorities might reach the conclusion that Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles have similar functionalities," Daimler said in its newly released quarterly report. The maker first acknowledged in January that authorities had begun probing its handling of diesel emissions. That was the same month that VW agreed to settle a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department, a federal judge this past week approving the payment of a $2.8 billion fine. Almost 40 times the legal limit In the VW case, the mainstream German automaker rigged the software controlling two diesel engines to recognize when a vehicle was undergoing emissions tests and then adjust pollution levels. In real-world situations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asserted, those powerplants would produce up to 40 times the legal limit for pollutants like smog-causing oxides of nitrogen. Since the scandal broke in September 2015, regulators in the U.S. and the European Union have begun rechecking the emissions claims made by other manufacturers, including Daimler, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and others. In January of this year, the EPA took aim at FCA, alleging that it may have used its own, rigged software on products like the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel which "appeared to cause the vehicles to perform differently when being tested" than when in use in real-world conditions. That same month, Daimler said that what the EPA was concerned about "apparently includ(ed) functionalities that are common in diesel vehicles, as undisclosed Auxiliary Emission Control Devices (AECD)." While the German parent of both the Mercedes-Benz and Smart brands did not confirm it had broken the law, it laid open the possibility that its own diesel emissions strategy could be in trouble. "If these or other inquiries, investigations, legal actions and/or proceedings result in unfavorable findings, an unfavorable outcome or otherwise develop unfavorably, Daimler could be subject to significant monetary penalties, remediation requirements, vehicle recalls, process improvements and mitigation measures," Daimler stated.
    •   Wow, Del I forgot all about that little discussion you started two years ago.  All the fun folks were in on it, even the LIMITOUT. That's what happens when you have short term memory loss and and pictures bring on new thoughts and emotions.  Let's just call this threat the "What a dang waste and shame!" More of an aftermath threat?  K
    • When we had are seasonal campsite I had lots of squirrels. I used all metal feeders. Come Sept them squirrels went in the freezer and cooked up for the wild game feed!
    • If you have been following the story, the reason VW got in this mess is they didn't want to license technology from BMW (or maybe Mercedes) and chose to develop their own.   When it couldn't be made to work properly, they chose to cheat rather than bite the bullet.    Long discussions of what happened as the story broke    
    • I had one of those.  Mine never quite ran right, although I lived with the quirks for years.  I have a pdf of service manual if you want it.   Mine ran rough intermittently at certain rpm.
    • If they make it better because of stupid government mandates it wouldn't bother me at all.   In fact, the Dodge ram diesel that I used to have had something from Daimler Benz that allowed it to meet the standards without DEF. I would not be surprised if they did something similar with those diesels and if they did I applaud them. The best thing anyone can do with the diesel trucks is delete the emissions and unlock the power and economy that are robbed from them.   
    • pellet gun does the job here  
    • I have to many squirrels, need the feeders with the metal holes.
    • build it and they will come.
