1. Seaguar Invizx 100% Fluorocarbon

We recommend Seaguar lines regularly. Their INVIZX fluorocarbon fishing line is hard to beat.  It's strong and has superior knot strength. You can feel how smooth it is, it has very low memory and casts like a dream.

Like most fluorocarbon fishing lines, it is sensitive, strong, and nearly invisible underwater. It sinks, which is great for crankbaits, especially deep divers.

2. P-Line Tactical Fluorocarbon Line


P-Line's Fluorocarbon has a lot of raving fans, and boasts many of the same qualities as Seaguar and Sunline. It's a good line, tough as nails, some say. I've broken once with it, but other than that it's great line.

KastKing Fluorokote Fluoro Fishing Line

This award winning copolymer-Fluorocarbon fishing line sinks fast and holds strong. The unique fluorocarbon materials make the line extremely durable with high knot strength. Feel every fish with great sensitivity.

Fish a wide variety of conditions and techniques with confidence in your line using the KastKing FluoroKote.

4. Sufix Invisiline Casting Fluorocarbon

As the name says, it's virtually invisible underwater (most fluorocarbon line is). Invisiline boasts memory-free handling and great strength. It's durable, casts well, and won't break the bank.

5. Sunline Assassin FC Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

This line is super tough, very castable, and has great knot strength. It's manageable, with very few backlashes and great casting distance. It's highly sensitive while still very abrasion resistant. Especially helpful with smaller squarebills where you want to feel every bit of the retrieve.  It is also smaller in diameter than the cheaper lines, without much line memory.

Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

New and improved, the Berkley lines were some of the first fluoro options on the market. Personally, this is not my favorite on the list, but it performs consistently.

7. Yo-Zuri Hybrid Copolymer Fishing Line

This hybrid nylon and floro line is relatively cheap and very strong. It has good knot strength and good hook set strength. If you pull it to the breaking point, you will notice it has some stretch. Still, it has no more stretch than some flouros and less than most mono. This makes the thinner diameters good for deep cranking baits. You can be confident in the 12lb and 14lb in the thick stuff where braid is normally used.
