One of the worst lines I have ever fished...  March 28, 2011
I spooled up my favorite jig rod with some 12LB Halo while I was
pre-fishing for a Tournament on Clearlake, Ca. I stopped fishing
with that rod in less than an hour because of the Halo.
Backlashes, weird twists, kinks in the line, etc... I let it all out
and drug it behind the boat for a good 10 minutes (to get any
twists out). Reeled it in and it was just as bad as before. That
night in my hotel room, I stripped off all the Halo and re-
spooled with Regular 12LB P-Line Fluorocarbon (my normal line
for that rod), and I fished that same rod in the tournament the
next day and it performed perfectly, not a single backlash, no
issues at all. I knew I would never use Halo again. A few weeks
ago, I was out fun fishing with a friend and he kept breaking fish
off. I noticed the light green line he had spooled and I asked if it
was Halo. It was, And now he wont use it ever again either. I
talked to some P-Line guys at a ISE show and they were
suprised. I like the regular P-Line, I do not like Halo. Maybe I
had a bad spool and maybe my friend had one as well.
Regardless, your line is one of the most important parts of your
tackle. It doesn't matter how well they bite if you keep breaking
them off. And spending your day picking out a backlash is not
what I call a good time.
