Default Co-polymer for small swimbaits/paddle tails?

I am looking to spool up a reel for small swimbaits/paddle tails and I have a spool of 17lb P-Line CXX co-polymer but have never used any. Anyone know if it will work well for this application or should I stick with some big game? Thanks!

It'll work just fine! I use 15 lb. CXX for this application. I use CXX for pretty much all of my reaction bait fishing. It's a little on the big side but it's very manageable and casts great. Oh yeah and it's freakin' strong! The draw back is the color. Does anyone know if they make CXX in clear?

Good choice. Strong stuff. Knocks are high memory, (usually not an issue after the first couple of casts) and large diameter. You won't break it, that is for sure!

Because the line diameter is thicker than most it has almost a 2X breaking strength (saw it tested at ISE once ) because of this i have been using the 12 # for all reaction baits and 15 # in the delta or for topwater. Pline makes the best lines for any situation IMHO.

i hate P-line. Broke off a OG armageddon on 30LB CXX. 250$ down the drain. Big game and triple fish

Sun "natural mono" is a thinner diameter and strong too. I use it on most swimbaits. I use flouro sometimes on basstrix or lil creeper trash fish because its sinks more and feel the bite better.

+1, for most of my down baits like small swimbaits I use flouro and make my adjustment at the rod. This gives me strenghth,feel,faster fall rate and a smaller diameter. All my line is P-line

If you broke 30 lb CXX, you were doing someting wrong! I've personally done strength tests on that exact line; the knots did not break, and the line snapped at 42 lbs. of pressure.

P-line is the best +1,000,000
