    Is Blackwater fluoro the best fluoro leader line, or is there a far more superior line. What is it? Why?

    I use what ever gets left on the boat. But, honestly I don't bother with it much anymore. I noticed that when the albacore get real finicky it seems to make a difference. Over all, it's just another unnecessary knot, in my opinion. Almost every blue fin i catch is on a regular mustad hook tied directly to 40lb line.
    A lot of people swear by it though. If it gives you more confidence, you should use it.
    Sorry, I don't know much about blackwater. I usually use Seguar.

    I think the blackwater is a little bit softer and a slight more strech,and the seguar is a little stiffer with basically no strech at all. I use them both,however on line class over 40,I use seguar.

    p-line CFX is by far the best imo, dragged many yellows through the rocks and got them to gaff. xtremly abrasion resistant and a third less the diameter of seaguar, softer to, alot easier to tie knots and cast with. i find it holds excellent knot strength and the line breaks well above its rating.this is just my opinion, but my father in law fishes seaguar and 8-10 times i get bit when he gets nada, and he breaks off alot of fish in the rocks. but im a huge believer in using flouro seams the days im to lazy to tie it on i dont get bit but when i do i always catch fish.

    i hate seaguar, i've had it break too many times on me, so i stick with Blackwater and quite frankly Blackwater has 2- 300lb fish come in on it....

    I have fished both seaguar and blackwater and seaguar seems stiffer. I use Blackwater because I get it at a great price. I use flouro for fishing anything with teeth and it holds up to the abrasion where straight mono would break.
