    Cajun line is some good line. I use it myself and if you will use the search function at the top you will find several post in here about this particular line.

    Ive got the 20# on all my rods.I love it,its tough as nails and ive never had a fish break me off.And when you get snagged you will either strighten your hook out or have to cut your line cause its not going to break.I dont like the cajun line thats over 20# test though to me after that it dosent cast very well and it acts like a big old slinky.But i rarley fish with line any heavier,been thinking about experamenting with a few like power pro but i dont know yet i like the cajun an awful lot.

    I've got Cajun Abrasive Resistance on my reels. I settled on it due to good reviews, small diameter, and price. Its usually .003-4" smaller than Big Game or Big Game Supreme. I use the 14# test, and I can get almost 230 yards on my 6000ish reels.

    I started using it a couple of years ago and find that it is a very good line at a good price. I am also Cajun but that had nothing to do with me purchasing it lol.:smile2:

    I only like the advantage, the rest is garbage. Now I have a mile of leader material as I only use braided.

    I was reluctant to use Cajun even after reading all the posts about it. I broke down and spooled one of my Abu 6500's. Since then all of my cat rigs has Cajun on them including my Abu 7000. I like the castability, durability, flexability and general strength. What amazes me is the quality for the $. Currently I only use 20# and have caught fish over 30# and had no problems. Can't help but wonder about the hybrid lines though.

    i will get a spool of 14 lb cast line for every single pole i got cause them i can get about 3-4 changes of line

    this line is a very good line for fishing WHEN ITS NEW, after 5/6trips the line starts to get stiff and holds memory ( but if i recall the trilene i used craped out after 5/6 outings too and turned gray ) huh go figure... :roll_eyes:

    Yes,

    I used Cajun before I switched to braided. I still have cajun on my Zebco 33's for when I take kids. I loved it, it was stretchy, strong, and an unbeatable deal. Yes, it gets memory, but so does all mono, it's just the price you pay when you use mono.

    I use mono on all my reels and I change it once a year no matter if it needs it or not. I have never had line wear out in 5 or 6 trips. I have caught 50 lb. fish on 20 lb. test line that is over a year old. I think it might be because of getting snagged or pulling on it to break it loose.... this is tough on all good lines.

    Chris, I just went on the BP website to check on this, and they have what you're looking for. You might want to check some other sites, and go from there (if you don't want to order online, pick a place close to you that carries it).
