I checked on the vanish website and they say that is it a Florocarbon....not a coated line.
Thats funny because it performs more like a copolomer than a true Floro........now I'm gettin cornfused with the advertising.

TopCat, great post  ~c~ I have used vanish for leader on my carolina rigs and have had excellent success with it. In this particular set up I have to tie two knots with it and of course as with any line I lubricate the line very well before cinching the knot :-* The only flip to my success versuses what others have had is that I only use the 17 lb and it is very strong anyway  ;)

I do what you do MIke and as leader material, I have great luck with it, I use 20lb and 40lb in both fresh and salt. Both the clear and Transitions, and never had a failure unless the bite was too deep, before I could replace.

Thanks for the hints, topcat. But I know how to tie a knot, and wet them quite liberally when tying on a lure or hook. Maybe the line was old, or a bad batch. But line only gets one chance with me. When fishing tournaments you can't afford to lose fish because of bad line.
I'll stick with McCoy lines, I've never had a problem with it.

 SpiderLine Super xXx  Mono is the only line I will use. I use 17ib and I have never had any trouble with this line. I love it. I once hooked into a 4ib bass, got the line wraped up into the trolling motor when I tried to turn the boat around, and still landed the fish without breaking the line. Thi is the line for me, I use to always buy this line in low-vis green but now i can only find it in clear blue. Still it is the best line I have used.

The sad part about this  :'( is that they now own Stren.  I really hope they dont start messing with that formula.  Can't get the Stren floracarbon anymore  :'( Probably just stick with Stren Monos unless I find out they have been changed to Tri... I cant even get myself to type it.  :roll2: Don't tell me if they already done I DON"T WANT TO KNOW.

Yep Stren is all I use & now that they merged Stren Floro is off the market so Vanish don't have to compeat with it.  If the Mono changes up to reflect the "T" brand I will all so have to find a new company to support.

I have to tell you I tried P-line spectra braid, vanish f-carbon.  I broke off several on the p-line 30 lb at the knot,  the vanish kept coiling up like a spring.  I always end up back with berkley big game 15-20 lb line.  I now it will hang in there as long as I re-tie every couple of fish. :)

Wow...It's funny how folks have different experiences with certain lines...Vanish is the only Berkely product I'll use.  Caught a 15lb Blue Cat on 8lb Vanish the other day! My jig was way down in her gullet and she had me around a stump for a little bit too.

Spray that Vanish down with Reel Majic or KVDs spray to reduce that coiling. At the very least I tie on a Vanish leader using a J knot. The invisibility does make a difference in clear water. I toss a lot of braid until the water is gin clear, then use the leader, 6-8' long. One thing above all, WET the knot and ONLY pull down on the TAG end when cinching it up.

I tried the Vanish last year, put it on my reel, went fishing, came back home and took the stuff off LOL

The memory was awful in it, not counting the tying ability of it. I thought it was the worst line I ever used and I think I have about used them all at one time or another.  (got a big discount since I owned two tackle stores at one time....the owner liked me LOL)

I been using 14lb and 8lb Vanish for a couple years now and am very happy with it. The only Berkely product I use.
