Its 50% mono 50% florocarbon.I have used it and it has less stretch than mono but more than flourocarbon.Hmmmm how'd they do that?!I spooled up the 8lb and 12lb and it seemed to perform OK but I can't say that I tested it fully.It must not be selling well because when it first came on the market a couple years ago it was a little spendy but has been steadily dropping in price.

I have never used it. I looked at it in the store the other day. When I look at line I like to compare diameters. Yo-Zuri Hybrid's 8lb & 6lb line have diameters of .011" and .010" respectively, where as Trilene XL and Vanish are .010" and .009". This means Hybrid 6lb is the same diameter of 8lb XL and Vanish. One other interesting note is that 4lb Vanish is .007" and 4lb XL is .008". This can tell you a little about the strenght of flourocarbon, not to mention it doesn't absorb water like mono. (It wouldn't be fair to compare super line diameters) Just something to think about.

I've used the 6,8,10, and 12# test lines. The ratings are very conservative as the 12# is probably closer to 15# test which is why the IFGA would not consider 12# Hybrid for a 12# line class record. I like this lines abrasion resistance and low stretch but it does retain memory and it will get brittle over extended use. I just switched to Iron Silk and it might be a better option. Time will tell.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
