Default Using P-line cxx

Just bought a roll of this in 15#, for a trip next week to Alaska. Silvers are coming in. WOOHOO.

This stuff was so wirey that I couldn't get it to stay on the reel. I know 15# is a little heavy but we fish a river with a good current. Has anyone else had this happen.

I use the 10# stuff for steelies and really liked it, it went on fine. 15 # no way. I stripped it off and loaded Big game.


BTW I was loading on a spinning reel. Even tried 2 different reels. I threw the stuff away!

Anyone else??

It is super tough..awesome on a casting reel...I've got a 1200yrd spool in 14lb, acts like 20, diameter of 10lb
It works excellent on my 2 curado's.

Use the CX for spinning reels.

The cxx has too much memory past 10 lbs for spinning reels

12# flor blue CX side drifting on spin outfit works fine sure nice and easy to see.CXX is just a little to stiff for small spoll reels.
