Default line question

Has anyone ever used shakespear cajun advantage line? I was about to order it but I figured I would ask you guys first and see what your thought are. I was going to get it in 15 and 20lbs to use for stripers and fluke.

That's two votes for P-line, the best monofilament on the market IMO, Gamma is pretty good as well. Fireline Crystal which is somewhate new is very good as well, I had the pleasure of using that the other day, its much much smoother then the original smoke colored stuff and casts like a dream with the same small diameter and abrasion resistance I love.

The one thing about the Cajun line is that it is stiff, as opposed to P-line. I have Cajun line as well as copolymers. It depends on the reel as well. I won't use Cajun on spinners, but say on a 155 it'll work. I use P-line on my Abu's with success. Black Widow mono is supple as well as Spiderline mono. It all come down to preference.

Hi Kevin
Good to see you online again. I want to try the fireline crystal out myself. I tried to get some off the berkely rep but he was out of it.
He says it eliminates the need for the flouro leader.

3 votes for pline. I use the flourocated pline on the freshwater setup and its performed as good as I could want it to.

I see why he would say it eliminate the need for fluro but I think he's exaggerating a bit. However it is the smoothest line to date I've ever seen, same as fluro almost except not transparent. Using smoke, I get 15% better casts on my lightweight gear, and using the crystal I got about 25%. I'm switching over all my spinning gear pretty soon here (the ones I cast on, not my chumming sticks, those will stay P-Line).

It's been a while, but Striper season called me back, this weather we've been having is CRAZY! I was out fishing last weekend and got sunburned in 80 degree weather, and it snowed two days ago, and I had to rewinterize some things!
