What is your favorite line?

No fair I use both!- Mono mostly becuase i like the stretch and play. But braid makes me some nice sturgy leaders...So???? Hard question maybe depends on your set up and what it is that your fishing for!-EBA

I voted braid because I use a lot of it but I still use mono for some applications.

i voted braid i fish lures alot i havent lost a striper this year if i hooked him for over 5 secs with braid when using mono and top water seems like im only landing about 50% to 60% of fish

braid has its place.but,i still fish 80% of the time with mono.

Leader material Berkley Big Game hands down. Main line I use Xtra Tuff line 80 pound. I fish the Saltwater and the Columbia river with it. Sturgeon or Salmon no problem.

depends on what your fishing for and where your fishing.
tuffline xp(braid) or maxima(mono).
maxima or pline leader for most applications.

*btw i have switched to braid on almost all of my rods except 2(calcutta 700 has 30 pound maxima ivory and shimano castiac has 8 pound maxima ivory(i think its called ivory/has a clear goldish color)*

Stren - Hi Impact Saltwater for me. Mainly used for shore Rockfishing.

p line because it is much cheaper than braid so if you snag and lose a lot of line it is cheaper to refil ;)

I just tried the new P-Line Spectrex IV and I boated a fish. Don't know what else to say. So far so good. I've got rods strung with mono, but don't use them. My rods flex, my line doesn't. Jerking up lings out of the rocks is better with no stretch.

Braid only!
Lighter action rod for shock absorbsion and braid for zero stretch.
Mono Blows!
