A lot of people knock it, but I love it up to the 10lb range, and that's Fireline Exceed. I use the 4lb and 6lb on my light spinning reels for snapper, bream and squid around my local.

BCF have specials all the time.

http://www.motackle.com.au/fishing/line ... 01407.html This the way I would go. The fluoro lets you see where your line is, and you'll be tying a leader to it anyway so makes no difference to shy fish. If you are chasing natives, you won't need any more braid than a 125yd spool, just put some backing on the spool first. Reasonably priced, and a pretty good line for what you pay.

I have a reel loaded with 6lb Berkley Trilene Transoptic and am very happy with it, testing it on the beach landing a few 50-55cm Australian Salmon in 1-meter conditions. Pound-for-pound, you won't find many better fighters than Australian Salmon.

A review from someone who sounds like they don't work for Berkley and is not defending a purchase. It includes some points the reviewer doesn't like but he still sounds positive about the line.

It is not a hi-vis line and I am not convinced the colour change is any more than a gimmick but I still like it.

I would go with 4lb Fluro straight through that what I have set up for fed fin caus I fish a lot of clear water but if fishing murky water you can use braids ,it's a persernol thing I like the Fluro cause I don't like knots so I simply tie the lure to fluro line

Do you have any problem with line memory Vlad? I have tried using Fluro straight through and found it keeps wanting to twist off the spool when you open the bail arm. That was with Fluro FC so maybe just that brand?

maybe its not the line then maybe its the bail arm on your reel ,maybe the bearing on the bail arm needs a drop off lube or ,you incorectly wound the line on the spool and thats why its twisting . u tube videos give you the correct way of how to spool fishing line on the reels , most common fault is incorect spooling generates line twists .

The fluro intended for use as a main line is more limp than the fluro that is intended for leaders. If you ask the tackle shop they should be able to recommend one for a main line. I have used Sunline Reaction FC that i have purchased off ebay in the USA and it is supple and has good knot strength. It starts at 8lb though. The Sunline Finese FC is also OK and starts at 6lb. Again i have purchased it from ebay in the USA
