Description

P-Line Hydrofloat Thermal Fused Spectra Line features a thermal fused coating. Although Hydrofloat line can be used for many applications and works well on both spinning and baitcasting reels, this specialty line was designed for float and centerpin fishing for salmon and steelhead.

The fused coating of Hydrofloat makes this line more buoyant than traditional Spectra lines, allowing the angler to have a drag free drift by always being able to see and manage the line on the waters surface.

Unlike most Spectra lines that are very limp and tend to wrap around the rod tip, Hydrofloat has more body which helps to eliminate these problems. When making long drifts, anglers will appreciate the fact that this line has virtually no stretch, allowing you to have instantaneous positive hook sets. Hydrofloat also boasts a high strength to diameter ratio.

 Great line
Pros: Highly Visable, Abrasion resistent
Cons: Need more colors
Best Uses: Float fishing
Comments: I highly recommend the 20 lb. test. I tried the 15 lb. and it seemed to fray way too easily around the bobber stop. I have not tried the 30 lb. test.

 Center Pin Line
Pros: Best line for drifting, Durable and floats well
Cons: High vis- color
Comments: I use this line on my Ross center pin reel. The line casts well for me and it also floats very well. I am ok with it in cold weather/water conditions. It would, however, do the company better if it was available in other colors and perhaps more line in the spool. I would recommend this product to others.

 Quality Float Fishing Line
Pros: Floats Well, Casts well, Durable No stretch, Highly Visable
Comments: Very good float fishing line. Floats very well with no stretch. Improves landing fish. Works well in cold conditions also. Only drawback is the tying mono or flourcarbon to it for standard knots won't hold.
 The best float fishing line
Pros: A great line
Cons: Cost
Comments: This line floats on top of the water and it is excellent for center pin fishing. It gives you a free and flawless drift without having to mend the line. Having almost no stretch, it allows excellent hook sets. It is strong with a thin diameter and allows excellent distance casting.My fish hook ups have improved with Hydrofloat.
 Great line
Pros: Floats good
Comments: Love the line

 great for topwater lures
Pros: Casts well, Floats Well++, Strong, Highly Visable
Best Uses: Topwater Fishing
Comments: Make my own topwater lures and by far the 10lb test is the best. Tying a lure on this line is very good. Caught many smallmouth bass in the 3lb to 5lb and no problems yet.
 Amazing Product
Pros: Diameter +, memory-+, Best line for drifting, Floats Well++, Tangle-free++, Does not stretch++, Rock solid hooksets++
Cons: Need more colors, must ensure good knots-slick and can slip!
Best Uses: All center pin applications, Float fishingsteelhead
Comments: Have been using hydrofoil float for 2 full seasons on my center pin, from Idaho to the Great Lakes for steelhead and trout. I will never go back to Mono- this Spectra has zero memory and never coils or tangles. Even in cold weather no problems. Usually use the 15 # at 0.009 thickness. Walt-The Otter

 P-Line Hydrofloat Thermal Fused Spectra Line
Pros: Floats great, Does not stretch, Tangle-free, Highly Visable
Comments: I bought this braid because I'd heard many stories about how novice pinners can get terrible birds nests in their lines and also how mono and fluorocarbon can cause twisting issues. Since I am new to pinning and have had plenty of twisting issues with mono and fluorocarbon on my spinning reels I decided to go with this braid for my first center pin line. I liked also that is floats and is highly visible. It spooled very nicely onto my Okuma Raw II pin reel.

 Hydrofloat
Pros: Casts great
Best Uses: float fishing for steelhead
Comments: It is an excellent line. It floats well and due to its visibility, it is very easy to mend. The combination of these two features makes it very easy to achieve a natural presentation.

 Awesome on my CPin
Pros: Best line for drifting, Durable and floats well
Cons: Need more colors
Best Uses: Centerpin w Noodle Rod
Comments: Works for me in ALL conditions on CPin. Easy to cast and super distance if using the Improved Wallis Cast. Mending the line is ok but a little tough on windy days. [Go figure]

 Finally
Comments: For years I have needed a braid line I could see. I have tried all and have never been happy. I have only used this new line a couple of trips but I am encouraged. It is quiet and highly visable. I use it mostly for frog fishing. My hopes are that it doesn't fade to soon and stays together.

 Better than Siglon
Pros: Floats high, Strong, No stretch
Cons: Memory
Best Uses: Centerpin w Noodle Rod
Comments: I have used Raven and Siglon for my centerpin setup before but this line works best for me. When making long drifts this line stays on top of the water and the no stretch helps to hook fish at long distance. It does have some memory but not enough to really comlain about. I always had trouble hooking fish at long distance due to the fact that most centerpin rods are essentially noodle rods and mono line can stretch ALOT, but this line solves that problem!

 P-Line Hydrofloat 8lb
Pros: Floats like crazy, Very Easy Mending, Highly Visable
Cons: Line Freeze
Best Uses: Drifting, Float fishing
Comments: I have used this product many times over the past month or so. I have not however caught many fish on it, only a half dozen or so. The WI steelhead are just gearing up to make their spring runs. I really like this line alot. It is so easy to mend line on short or long drifts, a guy can really fine tune his drifts and catch every little pocket and seam. The line does freeze up quite a bit, I have only been out one day when it was above freezing. With that said the temps at which I am fishing, any line is going to freeze, its just that this stuff doesnt like to be reeled back on the spool when it is frozen, it tends to jump off of the spool and get wrapped around the base of the spool. It has a larger diameter than say a fireline or other braid which I feel is why it freezes up worse than other braids. Overall I really like this stuff alot and cant wait to fish it this spring when the temps are just above freezing.

 Awesome float line
Comments: Started out with another spectra line on my float rod but the tip wrap was a pain. Switched to 12lb hydrofloat but the small diameter was difficult to manage. Decided to go with 20 lb hydrofloat which was the right move: no tip wrap, floats and shows up like a dream. No real difference in water drag between the 12 and 20 lb line. Been a flyrodder for a long time so the instantaneous connection (no strech) compared to fly line was a bit startling at first but was easy to get used to and eliminated misses. Love the line.

 Good floating braided line
Comments: I am using it for spinning and center pin float fishing for steelhead. Floats well, no stretches, handles well and allows for drag free drifts. Happy with it - I am just afraid that in low water it could spook fish; I would like to see it in other colors too (green).

 highly recommended
Pros: Rock solid hooksets, Casts well, Floats Well
Cons: Using at low temps
Best Uses: Float fishing
Comments: Great for float fishing for Steelhead! A little tough to handle when the temp dips.
Habilus

 I will use this line.
Pros: Mends like a dream, Floats great
Best Uses: Big Water
Comments: This line mends very well. I will fish this line on 12 foot casting rods, with floats, in larger rivers. The lack of stretch makes for easy hook ups, on the glory drift. If you are using a centerpin the lack of stretch was to solid when fighting fish. I took it off the pin after 5 Steelhead. As for casting or spinning float fishermen, this could be the best line you have ever used.
