Seaguar uses different polymers and dual polymer lines. Premier, Blue, and Gold are dual polymer (dual structure) lines that improve knot strength, abrasion resistance, elasticity, and strength to diameter ratios.Anyone know why seaguar has so many? Black, blue, red … WTF?
That was the last straw. And before someone says it just a bad lot, I bought 3 spools of each all from different vendors and they all had different lot numbers to make sure it was a fair assessment.
Aftcos Seiko floracarbon is a lot like blackwater, Aftco had sunline make it for them, I really like it, I have fished virtually every brand floro there is at one time or another. Seiko is extremly abrasion resistant, extremely strong , gets bit really well , and is pretty reasonable in price. I tend to pull pretty hard, and haven't had any failures with it yet.I will never use yozuri pink again. Ever. I have had it break many times, always the same, right in the middle of the leader. I don't know how you guys are using this with success. Maybe you are not using a lot of drag, or longer leaders than I but had 60#, 80# and 100# break on me at the Lupe...on multiple fish. Even the skipper said he saw that breakage all the time and advised against using it. That was the last straw. And before someone says it just a bad lot, I bought 3 spools of each all from different vendors and they all had different lot numbers to make sure it was a fair assessment. All 3 spools in the various line classes busted off and, unless my public school math fails me, that totals 9 fish. 9 fish lost vs none landed until I changed to Blackwater. Zero lost fish with Blackwater.
I am super bummed the Blackwater is no longer available so I am searching for a replacement once my stash is gone.
Just my .02
