P-LINE HALO is all you need.

Either P-line halo or Toray. For clear water applications these lines in 5-8lb can not be beat.

I like PLine, but now I'm using Seagar for both casting and spinning. I think it's another confidence factor find something your comfortable with is more important then what it is.

Try Bawo Super Finesse by Toray. Has great abrasion resistance.

I join the leaders with a uni to uni and use an improved clench on the lure. I don't have any problems with Seagar

You can catch anything up to 4 # all day long on it, but when you lose that DD you'll wish to **** you'd switched. It has bad knot strength. My buddy who helps me tie used to break a knot occasionally tying on a Vanish leader. (He's a bull) However never with Seagar. I'm anxious to try the 100% by Berkley.

That was 6-8 months ago I heard that so you could be right.
Greg,

One important thing to consider when using fluorocarbon lines is the knot being used. GENERALLY speaking, most fluorocarbon lines tend to be much more brittle than monofilement lines. So knots that cut onto itself (such as the popular Palomar knot) will not work well on fluorocarbon lines. After much experimenting, I've settled on the use of a 'Quick Knot' ... it's just a simplified San Diego Knot that is quick to tie and is pretty strong.
