Your totaly right. It curl a lot, but I don't know why.

It's a shame because this line is very strong for a fluorocarbon, and I found knots are also strong.

I have to test Drennan.

I usually always run a 9foot 2x mono leader and then work from there. Water is clear ill tie on a couple feet of Seaguar flouro. Seaguar is my favorite maker of flouro tippet. If its a little murky ill just stick with Rio powerflex mono.
