Alan,

I have decided to take your fluorocarbon line down to the Tortugas and see how it performs.  I have always been a mono leader user but want to experience for myself how Fluorocarbon feels and responds to the challenges found in this fairly virgin fishing area.  Should be fun and a real good test of the qualities of this line.
I am placing an order on your website shortly.

Mac

Thank Mac!!!

Please let me know.

I made up 10, 10 to 15 foot bottom rigs with the 50 lb fluorocarbon.  It is very pliable and much easier to put a serious 6 wrapped snell knot on the Owner 5178 #7 circle hooks I am using.  Tomorrow I'll snell wrap a half dozen circles with the 60 lb and see how that plays out.  There is always a lot of planning and things to do for these trips but you knew that!

I snell wrapped 6 circle hooks using the 60 lb Flurocarbon.  This line is obviously thicker and therefore was not as easy to use.  It is still more pliable than 60 lb mono and admittedly I need to practice the snell a little more but once I get more experience I think it'll be fine.  So far so good but the real proof will be how it reacts under battle conditions!

So, how are they performed under battle conditions?

alan, i took some more of your fluorocarbon in 80, 100 and 130, on my last trip to puerto vallarta with the osuna brothers.  roberto was telling me that they had no problems with the line that i left for them and that they really liked it.  that's probably one of the best endorsements i could ever imagine!

You endorsements will be good enough to me.

This fluoro line was introduced since 2013. I've had a lot of good views/testing result from customers/members. There are always the same  return customers/members for purchasing. I guess that it is like if a person has found a good fishing spot, and he does not want to share the info with anyone....

Thanks,

Alan, the Osuna brothers have been using your fluoro for the last year and they have been very happy.  Danny is going to let know the final tally. I'd like to place an order as soon as he does. The 100 pound fluoro landed a 500 pound marlin after an 11 hour fight with drag settings up to 30 pounds.

Alan, I just heard about your fluoro...from Danny Osuna, of course. I'll be bringing him some gear when I next go to PV, and I am also going on a 16-day trip on Excel in April. I am interested in ordering some of your fluoro. I just tell you here? Or send a private message?
