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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
