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.

Awesome on my CPin
by Benny -
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]

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.

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
great for topwater lures
by basscat -
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.
Very good product, but top layer is not strong and a little stiff
Quality Float Fishing Line
by Polskip -
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.
Center Pin Line
by Ben from Ohio -
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.

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.

I love this line on my center pin and bait caster, very limp and floats like a cork , way better than mono for float fishing for recent steelhead trip to michigan
by Staley -
Knots are a pain with this line. FG knot doesn't hold. I just use a micro swivel at this point.

like that this line floatsmaking it easy to control topwater baits
Great drifting line for Steelhead
by david4784 -
This is a great float / drifting main fishing all though it is somewhat bulky is has great for strength. This is my #1 go to drifting line and I would use anything else. Great buy and a must have for any float guy!
I will use this line.
by Habilus -
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.
Nice line but bright yellow color will spook some fish in low water if you drag line on the water.
Better than Siglon
by Great Lakes Centerpi -
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!

Great for float fishing for Steelhead! A little tough to handle when the temp dips.
Good floating braided line
by HA -
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).
I would buy this product again and again
by Dan the fisherman -
Great line for center pin fishing.
I like it.
by Father of Big Fish -
Be quick to let the fish run after the hook set especially when using light tippets.
Awesome float line
by andy -
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.
P-Line Hydrofloat 8lb
by Chuck -
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.

The best floating braided line I've used; in conjunction with an Drennan float, it keeps my jigs floating naturally in a river or creek.

Will not tangle up like others
Good float line
by Joe -
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
