The best line I've found for overall fishing, and I use on both my bobber AND riggin' poles is Berkely Trilene XL 8 lb. test. It has less memory than most of the other monos, so it'll slide through the bobber easier and has a good snap for rigging. Keep new line on your reel, though. Like any mono, it doesn't take much of a nick to make it weak.

What are your thoughts on the 6lb Vanish?? That is what I use on my leader on both the LIndy and the bobber after the swivel .

I make all my lindy rigs with Vanish Pro 6lb test. I don't use the std blue box Vanish! Only the "Gold Box" stuff!!! much better! Oh, and the same with the leader below the swivel on the bobber rigs!

I use 6 and 8 lb. Trilene XT on my rigging rods and bobber rods.  We will have the braid vs. mono competition going on in the boat this weekend.

6lb xt green. I like the abrasion resistance. It seemed like the xl would break more frequently. If it's another suicide bite this year and the fish are engulfing the bait, you'll want it. The xl definitely gives a better casting distance, but if you're positioned right you shouldn't have to cast too far.

Tried the Power Pro 10-2 last year for the first time on rigging and was very impressed with the sensitivity. 

6lb Trilene XL clear for bobbers.

6lb Vanish (Blue Box), leader material.

Hey Bobber, why do you say Vanish Gold is better?

Power Pro 10/2 for just about everything using both 10# Vanish Gold for some light application leader and Seaguar 20# for jigging rocks...  When using mono, I am using Cortland 6# green or green ice.

The gold label Vanish is superior to the blue label. It is a different formula. You couldn't get me to use that blue stuff if they gave it away. I agree with Bobber on that and his slip float rigging!

I'm not looking to start a pissing match, but I use the blue label Vanish on my leadcore leaders, spinner rigs, and on my rattle reels in the fish house.  It works great!  I bought a spool when it first came out, spooled up a reel, and then the line broke everytime I tied a knot.  I stripped it off and swore I'd never touch the stuff again.  A few years later, I fished the FLW as a co-angler and talked to a number of anglers that swear by it.  Been using it ever since.

(Remember rule #1: It takes a jerk on both ends.shh.gif)

 Fife,

I too, use the blue Vanish for all my snells/leaders in summer and winter.  I have never had an issue with it the past 5 years or so.  It's good stuff in my mind!

I tried it when it first came out, blue label vanish, and what a bunch of junk it was. Snapping 10# on hooksets was a joke. It must have changed because if it didn't it wouldn't be on the market. I tried the gold label when that came out and have been very happy with it ever since.

Comes down to a personel preference.  I will be picking up a spool of 6lb vanish gold and see what the difference is, if any.

I can tell the difference in just tying knots! I also use it in the 10lb class for making up my spinner rigs!
