Thinking about buying some Seaguar Fluorocarbon line
« on: November 01, 2017, 08:06:26 AM »

As some know I am getting ready to change out most of my fishing line this Winter. I have already bought more than enough Sufix Performance Braid in 20 and 30 lb for my spinning and baitcasters. I do want to load up some with fluorocarbon for bottom bouncing and finesse stuff so I have been looking. I will also be using it as leader material on several braid wound reels. Found a decent deal on Seaguar Select 100%Fluorocarbon in the red box at less than $11.00 per 200 yd spool. Not sure if I wanna go with 12 or 15 lb line for baitcasters and probably 8 lb for my spinning setups. Anybody have an input on that? Any input accepted and appreciated.

Are you talking about this line? I have never head of it called "Select" so just making sure.
If you are talking about red label, it is a good line. I use it for saltwater and as leader. 12lb has stood up to many toothy snapper, and a bunch of other fish caught off high bridges. It is a strong line.
It's not the most sensitive Fluoro out there but at 11 dollars for 200 yards I suspect you probably already know that. Walmart usually has it pretty cheap. The good thing is that it isn't an expensive line so you aren't throwing too much money away if you don't like it. To me line is a personal preference thing. You won't know if you like it till you try it.

I just bought a 1000yrd spool of it to respool some of my reels...

needless to say I like it. lol.

I like the invisx a little more but, it also cost a little more.

I've used 12 and 15 and as the previous poster mentioned, the 12 is pretty tough.

Thanks Rick and WRT. You are right Rick, it wasn't "Select", it was Red Label. My short term memory sucks. It was at WallyWorld and it was 10 something for a spool. Sounds like I might pick up a couple of spools since I use backing one will do two reels.
I guess you do like it considering you buy it by the 1000 yard spool, WRT. If it works for you it is probably the cheapest way to buy it.
Gonna hang on and see if I get more responses to this. Thanks again.

Red Label is pretty good for leader material but good luck using it as main line. I've always used Stren Fluorocast, its inexpensive and casts very well

Thanks WataugaLaker and Pferox for the input. Sounds like I might be trying out two fluorocarbon lines, maybe.

Red label isn't bad at all. It doesn't handle as well as Invizx or even Abrazx but the price is reasonable.
 If I were looking for 1 flouro to do everything I would choose Sniper every time.

It's decent. I used it last time I needed fluoro. I think my favorite of the "cheap" stuff is still Spider Wire though.

For the price, Red Label is pretty darn good.  It's the first fluorocarbon line I tried and still use it if I need some line in a pinch.  I've experimented with quite a few different fluorocarbon lines.  If I had to rate them from best to worst (of the ones I've tried) it would be:

Sunline Super FC Sniper (currently use this for bottom contact stuff)
Seaguar Invizx (currently use for crankbaits and jerkbaits)
P-Line Fluoroclear
Seaguar Abrazx
Seaguar Red Label
Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon Line

Everything except the Trilene runs a pretty close race.  The Trilene was hot garbage IMO.

I agree. Red label is a great line.
I like Sniper better.

Thanks everybody for the input. As I have said before I am a cheapskate when it comes to fishing stuff but I do want some quality to whatever I buy. Sometimes I hit a home run, like Dobyns Fury Series, but getting good stuff cheaper is easier since coming to UB.
I think I might just go with Sniper and stay with braid and a leader for sub-surface lures. I am not sure at the moment.
Thanks again.

I use floro for spinnerbaits and cranks because it sinks and has stretch that braid doesn't, I like the line helping me fight fish and I'm less likely to tear the hooks out of the fish's mouth.
