Fireline Crystal

12 posts in this topic

Just wondering if its any good? I was at Cabel's in Rogers this past weekend and i bought a shimano sahara and had them put crystal on it but i havent got out to try it yet. I really like the smoky color Fireline but supposedly its not just the color thats different?

I started using it this year and I have it on 4 reels. Other than the color, I haven't really noticed a difference between the Crystal and the Smoke that I have been using. I haven't had any issues with it.

Used it all winter and I'm using it this summer on all the reels. IMO Fireline is the best their is.

Haven't tried it myself, I'm a PowerPro guy, but I know some people who really have had sucess with it...they may not acctually catch any fishing but they sure like the line....

Works great. Tie directly to the jig if jigging and tie on a snap for cranks. Slip bobbering a nice 1 to 2 foot leader of fluoro and lindy rigging use a fluoro leader.

Works great for me too. I spooled two reels last year with the Crystal and dind't notice any difference from the Smoke that I had used the 2 years prior. I only had a couple of break-offs and I would guess just about all of the lines would have broken off in those situations.

Well it is obvious, I am the only one who doesn't like it, must be just me.

i googled it and saw quite a few people on forums that hated it, but quite a few who love it. So it apparently isn't JUST you moviking! smile I suppose it's like anything else- some people hate it, others love it. I guess some things are just junk and all people hate them but i think Crystal is just about personal preferance.

I used ice fishing this year and it worked great. Although I tryed it on opener and they wouldnt take my jig untill I switched to mono. now im not sure what to think of it.

Like every tool, if you don't know how to utilize it, it is junk.

I can name other lines far worse in performance than Crystal, but it goes right back to the statement above.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
