I like it, so far; its a fair bit more pricy than Penn 10x. I don't like it too stiff though; a bit of suppleness allows the nail knots to bite in better, and I suppose the leader doesn't have as much memory.

There may be better options out there.

I like the 130lb Black Magic extra heavy stuff. The jinki and other supple monos dont have the same abrasion resistance for the same lb rating, just to thin and soft. Much like Jay, he he.

Back on topic, another vote for the 130lb Black Magic 'Tough' trace, heaps of abrasion resistance.
