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.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
