People like to say that fluorocarbon doesn't stretch much or at all.  It's completely false...a marketing tactic.  Fluorocarbon actually DOES stretch, in some cases, equal to or more than monofilament lines.  If you don't believe me, go buy some fluorocarbon line and try to stretch it with your hands.  You will notice it stretches just as much as monofilament.

I'm pretty sure the rule of thumb (and also common sense) dictates that thicker diameter line has less stretch.  So for example, 20 lb trilene XL will have more stretch than the thicker 20 lb trilene XT.  (i'm pretty sure XT is a little thicker)

Everything stretches, or it fails. Its some law of physics somewhere. Even steel stretches, pretty badly, btw. Only thing is humans can't apply the physical force needed to do it.

Elasticity it what everybody notices, and in many instances that's a good thing, look at bungee cords, tow straps, and even fishing line. If line didn't recover after it stretched, it would fail on the next heavy load. Supposedly, the more elastic it is the more heavy loads it can bear before it fails.

That's why Big Game is so popular with large species fisherman, it recovers quickly to take on the next large load a number of times before it fails.

Hands down the mono with the least amount of stretch is seaguar senshi. Nothing but good things to say about it, reliable, high preformance, and very cheap. What else could you want?

my vote is Silver Thread Excalibur copolymer. I have tried many lines over the years and keep going back to this. a little hard to find, but well worth it.

Curious to see what a good low-stretch mono line would be today....noticed this topic is 5 years old now.

I've been doing more walleye trolling and am looking for a nice mono with low stretch (for mono).

Senshi is the lowest stretch mono line I have used.

Sunline Natural Mono is the second.

Like others have said, its a give and take with stretch. Less stretch = faster fail

20lb senshi will not hold up as well as 20lb big game, or even the diameter equivalent of big game.

You'll notice that when you get hung up most mono will stretch and many times will shoot right back at you, weight, and hook and all. With lower stretch mono, the line will just snap.
With that said, I like low stretch mono. I use Sunline Mono and Senshi.
