    Use Cajun Advantage. It is a great line for bait caster.

    I have been using this year on all most all of my poles and I like it. I just had to use it once are twice before it relaxed and quit coiing up. It is strong and abrasion resistant though.:cool2:

    I have cajun on a few of my reels and really like it... Laidback is right about it relaxing, but it really is a good line.

    Not to be negative but I dont see what people like about this line this is some of the worst stuff I have ever used so many knots. Just my opinion.

    I use it and have not had any problems with the line knotting up but I don't river fish much either any line can get a bad twist in it if not properly rigged when river fishing and this can cause knots in your line.

    I Put Some Cajun Lightning, 20Lb Test On A Penn Spinner, Just Because Alot Of Folks Here Were Raving About It & The Guy At The Bait Shop Gave It To Me.

    What I Can Tell You Is, That It's Strong As All Get Out, I Pulled A Mad 7' Gator All The Way To Shore With It. I Can't Tell You More That That but That's A Fact. Elliot

    I currently have two reels spooled with this line, an abu 5000 spooled with 17lb and a 7000 spooled with 30lb. So far it seems to be very good line, casts great very little memory after the first few casts. Also has very good abrasion resistance. The only complaint I have with it is it's hard for my old eyes to see it when tying a knot at night.

    I have 3 reels spooled with it and after it gets stretched a couple times it spools reel well. I am with Griz on the old eyes not seeing it to well so I put me a bell on the tip of my rods to fix that. Now I need a flat head in the 50 to 60 lb range to test it real good.:lol:

    ive got three of my smaller rigs set up with 14 pound cajun, its a great line, tough and has very little memory, i love it and as soon as i can find it in 20 or 30 pound test im going to spool my two big rods with it.

    I swear by the cajun red cast. That stuff comes off the spool ready to fish without coiling.

    Got to go against the grain on this one. I tried one spool of the stuff and will never buy another. I don't need the line to disappear...I'm catfishing. I'll put my Big Cat (solor collector green) up against the Cajun Red anyday of the week and I'll bet on which one breaks first. I must have gotten a bad batch...mine recoiled bad, even after using it for a few weeks.

    I first tried it on my lighter weight reel (6lbs. test) and loved it. Thought it casted nice and haven't had any trouble at all from it. Bought some of the heavier stuff (20lbs. test) and spooled up an older reel I had here, took it out today and after the first few casts it seemed to do just fine. haven't had the chance to catch anything that would give the heavier stuff a test, but if I do I'll let you know how well it holds up.

    Yeah it is. I used it twice and by the second time I couldn't wait to go home and rip it off

    Kinda mixed opinions on it I have been thinking of trying it. I have some of the berkley big game on now and cant stand that stuff nothing but troubles with it. So maybe I will try it aint that expensive if I dont like it.

    I put it on 3 of my reels in 20# and 30# after using it a few times it settles down really good and casts well I have it on a tide water. 7000 abu,and a spinning reel, so far so good and it is very strong, no problems with knots, it will never take the place of the big game I like so well but it is very good line.

    People who like the Cajun line are probably talking about the new Advantage cast formula. That stuff is made to be low memory. I havent used the old stuff, but The new formula is awesome!
