I like it!  ~c~  It has low stretch, is sensitive, although not as much as braid, and is quite abrasion resistant, knots well, casts well, and is relatively inexpensive compared to straight fluoro or braids.

Craig Defronzo (earthworm77) is the one who put me onto using it, and he's told me they make a soft version for spinning reels. I haven't tried it on spinning gear yet.

I use it on some of my baitcasters, and I use it to make leaders for fly fishing!  ~shhh

When I put it onto my baitcaster, I got fewer backlashes. Don't get me wrong, I still get them (some of them pretty ugly), but less than other line I've used. I just picked up a spool of smoke colored line too. Bigjim is right. It's low stretch and abrasion resistant. I love it for the tight knots I can make. I haven't had any break offs. I always get 20# test though. Get what you feel comfortable with.

I've only noticed that if I let it sit too long on the reel without being used or after having it on the reel for a long time. I find the warm water soak trick helps then. Sometimes I soak it in warm water before even putting it on.

I agree with Floater, only if my reels sit for extended time periods have I noticed some memory, but it hasn't been a problem for me. In the past I used some Berkley Big Game and some Spiderwire Super Mono on my baitcasters, and the Yozuri has less memory than both of them in my opinion.  ;)

I converted to it. Much better than co-polymer, and less troubles than fluorocarbon mainlines. It's fine upgrade of mono to...hybrid, multiple fluorocarbon coated nylon strands making up the line. I haven't had a single memory problem, but then my line stays fairly wet year around. It's amazing a product like that can be so inexpensive. Check out http://www.yo-zuri.com/Products/ProdLine/Hybrid.htm

It's cheap, so there's not much to lose trying it.

I have it on my reels. It seems to work better on some than others, but I'm sure it's just the way I have them set...

I use it on my swimbait rods, its pretty tough stuff.  You should recehck the knot every 4-5 thros to make sure its not getting weaker.  But then I'm throwing 8-9 inch swimbaits.  I have 15 lb but haven't spooled it on a reel yet.  If its as strong as the 30 then it should be ok.

I've tried it a couple of times, and didn't care for it at all. Maybe I got a couple of bad spools, but I found it to have alot of memory. I also found it to be pretty stiff. For Hybrids/co-polymers, I'll stick to the silver thread and the P-line CX premium. As far as florocarbons go, the Seaguar Invis-x is the best stuff I've ever tried! I like it even better than the Sunline Machinegun cast.

I pick up a spool last night at BPS to try out ~shade

SanteeRangerMan, was it cold or warm weather that you decided it had a lot of memory?

HEARD THAT YO-ZURI HYBRID "ULTRA SOFT" IS IDEAL FOR SPINNING REELS.

It is. It won't jump off the spool like most stiff lines will. There are some casting changes I had to work on to use Hybrid, like the changes required to use Fireline. At first you might say "Whoa, what's this." But after a while Hybrid gets better and better, like Fireline does. Be gentle with it, as it (like Fireline) doesn't require as much energy to cast as mono. But Fireline is just too expensive, and isn't better than Hybrid in my opinion. It was easier to get into the Yo-Zuri mold.

I may just try the Hybrid. I use either 65 pound Power Pro or 20 pound Big Game line for my heavy cover situations, but I had to change the big game on my reels after every trip. I buy a spool in February and it lasts me until fall. How would you compare abrasion resistance between Hybrid and Big Game? Visability? Stretch? Knot Strength? Memory? Line diameter?

You can use the standard Hybrid on spinning reels in tests up to 8lb. Because it has Fluoro mix, it is stiffer than mono. It is way stronger and less stretchy though. Thr soft is the idea spinning line.

I have switched to using yo-zuri hybrid for all of my worming applications except for senkos (for which I use 15 lb. seaguar). Out here in Ca. we have alot of very clear, deep water lakes and I've found that I get alot more bites with the 4 lb. yo-zuri. It is actually verrry strong for the rating and I would compare it to 8 lb. of other lines. The heavier test line (12 lb. and up ) does get a bit of memory in it if you don't go fishing often but a good fish tugging on the line will staighten it right out! I also use the 30 lb. for throwing swimbaits. I love this line!!

i tried the hybrid & didn't like it.
tried the Yo Zuri Ultra Soft & now, that's all i use - on both spinning & casting, other than braid.
like island bass mentioned, the ultra soft is super good for spinning ...And, it's Much Stronger than posted ratings.
