P-Line Hydrofloat Thermal Fused Spectra Line
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.

Amazing for a fixed float setup
This is an amazing line for fixed float steelhead fishing but it’s horrible if you use a slip bobber. The continuous sliding of the bobber stop will strip the coating. Super disappointing when this happens the first day of using it. For fixed float applications this is the best line you will find.
Best floating line of the 6 brands I tried. Virtually no stretch and it stayed on the surface the entire day. The hi-Vis Yellow was always visible, even the rapid moving water. Will buy again.
good for baitcaster or spinning reels.

Bought this for my centerpin. I am probably one of the few who hates it. just seemed stiff coming off the spool and it liked to stick onto other strands of line on my spool when casting. tried getting it broke in a few more times with no luck. 3/5 stars for centerpin reels, but 5/5 stars on spinning gear or baitcaster.

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.
Good float line

Used this line steelheading in the fall. had zero problems and really liked the way it performed. The way it floats and the yellow color make it easy to get and control the drift
