Rapala Line

11 posts in this topic

A large national chain store has a ton of Rapala Line on clearance for 1.97 and 2.97 a spool in any weight 4 -14 lbs. Is this stuff any good. Never used the stuff myself, but if someone can tell me that it's good stuff I might have to pick up a bunch.

I have used the rapala line for the past 2 years and have liked it. It seems to have a low memory(for me at least, others may say different) and does not break off as some other lines i have used. How long is the line on sale for, i am going to have to go buy a bunch of it, that price is unbeatable. Email me and let me know what store has it. weatherman_01 at yahoo dot com

I used the 4lb. test Rapala Finesse line and it held up all last season without a line change. Spring trout, crappies, bluegills, etc. Low memory and is the best casting monofilament I ever used. I'd buy a load at that price...

I have used the Rapala Finesse for a both ice fishing and open water and like the low memory it has - especially in the cold. I haven't had any problems with it at all.

yeah i used rapala on most of my reels last year, and I loved it. It has a very low memory.

hey wishiniwerefishin,
I don't need to email you I'll just tell you. It's a chain with the initials G.M. and I've been in both the Burnsville and Bloomington stores and there is a ton of it on a clearance table. Looks like it's on sale until it's gone.

I think they have two formulas, finesse and tough. I tried some finesse 4# last year ( on clearance) and it broke very easily to the point where I might try tough but would not buy the finesse again

I have used both tough and finesse in summer and in winter. I found the finesse to be a great winter use line and never had any breakoffs with it. I always use a flouro leader as well. It's comparable to Berkley XL with less memory. It's a steal at that price if you ask me.....
