    I made a post awhile back that after switching to low vis line I have been catching more flatheads in the daytime,

    After seeing Roger and Mellon both catch there personal best flats on hi vis neon green line, in the daytime...I stand corrected, line color dont mean a hill of beans:smile2:

    I think I will get me some of that hi vis ande monster yellow to try it out.

    I think it's pretty!

    I used to use a stren line that was a bright hot orange, its been years ago, pretty sure it was stren 40lb. caught a many big flats on it. Since I have used the hi vis. green, electric blue. I can't see a difference either now Jack now I think about it. Im a mono man on the river for the most part, and have thought about this many of times, and had opinions, but I agree.... I can't see a pattern enough to worry about it. After all, them trotliners have used huge diameter white rope for years:wink: rollo

    I use mostly Hi Vis line. I use different colors so its easy to tell them apart. They are easier for me to see both day and night.
    I use the BBG Hi Vis Green and Clear Blue
    I just bought some Suffix line in Tangerine. Almost zero memory and strong! I like it.
    Wantin to get some yellow line to try.
    I havent noticed the color of line making a big difference. Some of my biggest cats of the season came off of Hi Vis line.

    I've been using Sufix Siege tangerine hi-vis mono,too. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try a hi-vis mono line.

    I use the 40lb hi vis electric green, berkley big cat! It seems to do good in thick stuff and great against the rocks! I lost quite a few big cats this year using the power pro braid mostly in the rocks, So i ripped all of it off my reels and went back old school! Plus it looks cool on my silver Abu 6500s!:wink:
