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.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
