Shocking Results! New Mono vs Fluoro Line Abrasion Contest
It’s line contest time!!
We’ve done abrasion contests before between monofilament and fluorocarbon lines.
But this time I wanted to use the same diameter of lines instead of using the same pound test for the contest.
So in this new (and shocking) line abrasion test, you’ll learn which line wins…by a LANDSLIDE!
Check it out below!
New Mono vs Fluoro Line Abrasion Contest [VIDEO]
You’ve probably always heard that fluorocarbon is the most abrasion-resistant line.
And we’ve done these tests before and mono shocked us all by outperforming fluoro.
But this time we are taking it one step further and basing this experiment off of equal line diameters!
We’ve rubbed the lines with the same tension (weight) against sandpaper.
The side-to-side motion twists the line and is similar to what happens when a snook or bass shakes their head.
Here are the lines used for the contest:
- Ande Monofilament, 15#, 0.40MM, $0.08/yard
- Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon, 20#, 0.40MM, $0.24/yard
- Seaguar Fluorocarbon, 20#, 0.405MM, $0.58/yard
Round 1 (Ande Monofilament Vs Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon)
- Berkley Vanish, 25 passes
- Ande, 32 passes
- Berkley Vanish, 24 passes
- Ande, 30 passes
Round 2 (Ande Monofilament Vs Seaguar Fluorocarbon)
- Seaguar, 15 passes
- Ande, 20 passes
- Seaguar, 14 passes
- Ande, 21 passes
As you can see, the more affordable (and lighter pound test) Ande Monofilament won hands down!
I’ve stopped using fluoro and have not seen my catch rate change at all.
In fact, I have seen an improvement in not losing fish (even around docks).
My next mono versus fluoro contest is a visibility test underwater.
Are there any variables that I missed?
