It seems to me from all my reading that abrasion resistance comes at a price.  Fluorocarbons are supposed to have more than monofilaments and Co-Polymers.  Fluoros have more handling problems.  Get a fluoro that handles well and it doesn't have as good abrasion resistance as one that likes to jump off the spool.  It will most likely also have more stretch.

If you don't want to use a fluoro, CXX and Platinum are said to have excellent abrasion resistance.  Both have memory issues.  Some think this may be because they have a larger diameter than some other lines of the same poundage.  Personally I doubt that.  CXX, Platinum and Siege 12# all are listed as having a .014 diameter.  I originally spooled 12# Platinium on my daughter's first (and only) baitcast reel because she loves to fish Senkos.  I replaced it with 12# Siege after she complained of casting problems due to memory.  Haven't heard a complaint since.

It is my understanding that lines sold as leader material are harder and stiffer than regular line.  This should translate into better abrasion resistance.  If I fished areas where abrasion resistance was paramount...and I was having problems with my main line...I definitely would be giving leader material a try.

I prefer a mono or Co-Polymer, but can see the advantage of fluoro in some situations....such as cranking.
