    I'm with the "there's something wrong" crowd. I know when I first used FD I had problems with using the palomar knot. Anywhere in the knot that you have line on top of line it will cut. This is tough to avoid with FD if you're not careful. It's so tough that I'd say try another knot.

    I used to share the hatred until I learned to manage flouro. It starts with not putting it on a spinning real, then learning better knots like the fg. Line care checking for nicks etc. Then goes to using line treatment. I use real magic because it's easy to find at Walmart but I think they all serve the same purpose. And you have to prepare yourself for replacing it sooner than braid. Mono to me has about the same usable lifespan with treatment. In an average day I have 10 rods on my deck, and 7-8 have flouro. I use Seaguar red label for heavy 12-20 applications and invisx for anything lighter. Took me a while but that's a winning combo for me. And cheap enough.

    Again any concerns I had were the line right out of the box. At times I would purchase the line to use as a leader for braided line (shakeyhead technique). I have found the knot was the main problem I was creating. I started using the "Shaw Grigsby knot" I was directed to in this post. Great knot by the way.

    Because a rod & reel usually last 3+YEARS, line gets changed out every 3+WEEKS.

    I use PLine Flouroclear with good results on most flourocarbon applications, but for the "serious" rods like my jerkbait rod, I use Sunline Sniper. It is incredible. Just respooled my jerbait rod for the first time in 2 years. You gotta use line conditioner on flouro especially if it is a bait that is prone to creating a twist.
    Now for crankbaits I have gone to the Sunline Super Natural Mono. Inexpensive and it really works great.
    The best thing about the Sunline brand is the diameter is so much less. I use 12# for jerkbaits and it is the equivalent of less than 10 of most other brands.
