Default lbs. to X conversion

I've always used X-size for tippets. Now that I'm becoming more interested is bass and other fish, I find that y'all use pounds, which of course we all did for bait and spin casting. Does anyone have a conversion chart:

6X............... lbs.
5X............... lbs.

Also, does flourocarbon affect the conversion?

We're all in the same boat. We all come 'ere and we don't know why. We all go in our turn and we don't know where. If you are a bit better off, be thankful. And if you don't get into trouble an' make a fool of yourself, well, be thankful for that,'cos you easily might.--J.B.Priestley
