Opinions on Fireline Crystal?

7 posts in this topic

I fish a clear lake so the Fireline Crystal is very appealing to me... Who has used this and what are your opinions? Ive just the Smoke stuff from a couple years back...i thought it was good stuff. Decent castibility, durable... Is the Crystal stuff same or different?

Team Otter uses this quite a bit, he would be a great one to ask, you could either go to the Walleye forum or to the SouthCentral Mn forum to find him. And similar subjects have come up where he explains it there.

Its not clear like mono/flouro but it is translucent (so light can shine through). I actually find the smoke color to be a little more camouflaged.

I use the crystal on the ice, but don't think its the best clear water line.

Fireline Crystal will handle about the same as the Smoke color, if it is a clear lake or the fish are tight lipped I would use a flourocarbon leader.

Crystal loses it's translucent property over time, including just sitting on the shelf. It's not nearly as strong as Smoke.

I've used Smoke the last few years, and this is my first year trying Crystal. I have 3 reels spooled up with it, so I hope my luck is as good as with the Smoke.

Fireline Crystal/smoke is the best line period. I would never string up soemthing else.
