Why a copoly? If manageability is what you're after, just go with Seaguar Tatsu or Sunline Sniper and call it done.

I need something with more neutral buoyancy.

I know of only three fluoro-coated nylon lines: P-Line CXX-Tra Tough, P-Line CX Premium, and Yo-Zuri Hybrid. Of those, CX Premium is the limpest.

Original PLine handles like a nylon monofilament:

I made a couple of errors in my posting. First, the name of one line should be CXX-Tra Strong (not "Tough"), and it apparently does not have a fluorocarbon coating. (There is no mention of that on the manufacturer's site or on my boxes of it. I had thought that the reason why this line is so coily on spinning gear and abrasion-resistant was a fluorocarbon coating; I was wrong.)

P-Line does make another fluoro-coated line besides CX Premium, and that is Fluoroclear. I've never used it.

Cal, Original P-Line is not fluoro-coated, either.

My god that coiling in the picture is ugly as hell. I would definitely appreciate something limper.

My vote is for P Line fluroclear. I have never had a problem with it.

I've been doing some research myself and the P Line Floroclear seems to be the best bet.
Thank you guys, I really appreciate your input. Tight lines.
