I use 10 lb Fireline on my spinning gear and I really like it for spinning rigs but not much else.  I use Spider Wire for Musky but I haven't found a braid that I like for pitching or casting baitcasters.

I throw a lot of, and I think I am the only, Iron Silk 14 and 17 lb for spinner baits and top water.  I like the lower stretch and it is tough.

I use 17 lb fluoro on all my jigs, plastics and 12 lb fluoro on crankbaits.  I like the low vis and low stretch for jigs and plastics and the sinking for crankbaits.  The lower stretch real helps me feel the crankbait and determine cover type.  I mostly use Vanish but have also tried P-Line for cranks and did not notice a lot of difference with that application.  But, based on other opinions here I will try the BPS Fluoro.

I have also tried Suffix Siege and hated it due to line memory.  I know that most "tough lines" have memory issues and to compensate I re-spool regularly but the siege was so bad it was uncastable with in 24 hours of spooling it.  I haven't tried the other Suffix lines yet and I don't know if I will.

I agree with being confident in your line as well as your lure but I don't think I have ever found a line that I love and I am always looking for something better

I have been really happy with P-Line both Floro and Braid (I have been using it for 3 years now). I plan on trying BPS XPS line this year as well as P-Line.
