Best Salmon Line Ever!!!
by Jay and Jack Winkler
I was turned on to this during the Oct Salmon run in Pulaski NY. It was the best line I have ever used!! The day before I was using a so call exspensive invisa line, the fish saw it every time and just moved out of the way. When I used this new Dennon line the next day after recommendation from Fat Nancys, My son, and I caught several big kings.
Tough stuff !!

Use for salmon and steelhead in rivers.
The best Fluoro...period!
by Chewbacca -
This fluoro is the best. Incredibly strong, abrasion resistant, and gives me confidence when fishing for steelhead, etc. I ran out of this on a recent trip, and could only get a hold of RioMax Fluoro. Although it was supposed to test the same as the Drennan (5 pounds), I had three fish snap it. This never happens with the Drennan. Also, for the money, you get 50 meters, as apposed to the 25 or 30 meters other companies give you. As soon as I got home from the trip, I ordered more Drennan.
Good quality leader, but look at the diameters...they are huge! .010 for 6lb test is insane comparatively speaking. Look at the diameter, not the breaking strength, ...you will know what you are working with at that point. Any line company can put a breaking strength number on a label, comparing diameters is the true test across brands

Very strong line. I use it for shot line on my pinning outfit. Also great leader material.

Best I've used
by FLX Centerpin
Found a spool of this on 18 mile on Erie last spring. Figured I might better use it. I understand why it's 15 bucks a spool now!! Great stuff.
Missleading LB Test Label
The line is pushed hard in Pulaski so I figured I'd try it. After a few snags and breaking my main 10LB main line and loosing my entire rig I check the line diameter. Drennen line diameter is huge!! 5LB is comparable to other companies 8LB. Their 8LB is larger then 10LB. This messes you up when tying rigs, you have to look at line diameters instead of the LB test rating. Forget it, too expensive I will not buy it again.
The best I've found
by Salmon Guy
I rarely write reviews but I must for this product. I am retired and built a Camp in Pulaski, NY. I fish Salmon River from April - December and don't think anyone fishes the river more than I do. I started using Drennan Lead in 2013 after trying all of the others. This stuff is great. It is extremely strong (abrasive Resistant), invisible, it doesn't squirrel up like most all of the others. Main thing however is that, I catch more fish with it (lots of them). The only draw backs I see are it it expires so don't keep it to long (meant for guys who fish a lot), it's expensive (but you get what you pay for), as stated by another reviewer it is pushed in Pulaski and difficult to find anyplace else lastly I really wish it came in larger spools. I would love to be able to buy it in 100 or 200 yard spools.
Great line, is NOT Tippet material
by PA Fly Fisher
I really like this line but be aware, this is NOT fly fishing tippet in the sense that 'tippet' is usually thinner than traditional mono/floro lines, this is a leader line. The diameter of 10lb is .012" while Seagaur Invis 10lb (my favorite line) is .010". Invis 12lb is .013" so the Drennan line is good, but the diameter is what makes it stronger in my opinion, 10lb Drennan is really like using 12lb Seagaur Invis.

If you're looking for a strong Fluorocarbon leader with great knot strength then this is the one for you. Great Fluorocarbon
good quality line, but check the diameter.
by NY angler
Drennan is a good quality line, but you need to look at the diameter, its strength rating is not accurate.
Still the best I've found!
This is my second review since 2018. The stuff is still the best I've found and I've tried them all. My initial review I stated I wished it came in larger spools, but I take it back. I prefer the smaller spools simply because it expires. I'll go through 4 or 5 (50) meter spools a year but the line is always good. I use this stuff for everything from bass rigs to Salmon/Steelhead.
