    Personally, I dislike Stren. I have used the red Stren and Cajun line, stick with Cajun. Now I don't use either one. Trilene is the best line, in my opinion:eek:oooh:

    Leroy,I used to use stren line ,waaay back when I was a youngun. Then I noticed it had a heck of a memory from the spool. I tried TRILENE and NEVER looked back!!!,I also like the ANDE brand of line. both work for me and seem to be limp enough to cast without problems.

    I like Stren myself. I use the Clear Blue all the time, it's one of may favorite lines. I tried Cajun, man, I thought that I should have just spooled up with straight wire, it would have been the same. Stiff, memory is awful, I just didn't care for it. Trilene is OK, but I still like the Stren better. I've been fishing with Silver Thread AN40 exclusively this year, I love how it handles and casts, but the knot strength sucks big time. Every time I've broken off (snags, etc), the knot broke. Doesn't matter whether I use a palomar, clinch, Trilene knot, they all break.

    I used to use Ande quite a bit too, and I think that I'm going to go back to it for my heavier lines, since I can't find Clear/Blue Stren in anything higher than 20lb.

    I haven't used the Stren red line, just the Cajun. There are a TON of people on here who LOVE the Cajun line. That in itself says a lot. But I know that the Cajun Line is much more accessible to people (it's at Wal-Mart, and Wal-Mart is everywhere, not to mention other big box retailers also have it) than the Stren Blood Red. That is definitely one reason it's so popular. I've never seen the Stren Bood Red in any store, not even at Bass Pro Shops, although last time I was there, I didn't spend any time in the line area.

    They used to make Big Game in a clear-blue line and packaged it as Big Game Flippin'/Pitchin' on a 300 yd spool. It was supposed to be for strongarm bass tactics like Flippin' and Pitchin' jigs in heavy cover. That was the only line I used for as long as I could find it. I'm just not much the bright green, yellow, or orange lines myself.
