    I've been a P-line user, but have a longer trip coming up shortly and was thinking of switching to Izor XXX for the longer topshot reels in 40 and 50#. What say you?

    All are good as long as they are fresh and not been sitting too long. Have you tried suffix, its good stuff too.

    I really like Stren Blue fluorescent for bait but not much beats XXX for casting in my book.

    The Stren is especially great for party boats as it's easily distinguishable from other lines by it's fluorescent sheen.

    Pretty much agree..they are both Co-polymer lines, softer feel (less wirey), less memory when coming off the spool, so it doesn't get thank "slinky" look when your line leaves the spool, and both break at a higher point than rated.

    I use XXX, but that is only because I use XXX...you know how it goes with fisherman.

    Really like Izor line extra limp. Needs to be paired with a quality circle hook for a complete setup.

    I like "P" line for most applications, thinner, less memory, easy to tie, etc... For my flouro, I really like Blackwater. But I only use flouro for 60 and above.
