A hybrid in all the right ways

Yo-Zuri Hybrid Fishing Line is actually the only fishing line that molecularly bonds nylon and fluorocarbon during extrusion. This results in a very cool blend of sensitivity, abrasion resistance with a little bit of stretch included.

The main knock I hear about fluorocarbon is that it’s too stiff and as you increase the line diameter, it becomes more difficult to manage on both casting and spinning reels. For many fluorocarbons, I believe that’s a valid point. The big issue a lot of folks have with monofilament is that it’s too stretchy which, of course, affects sensitivity and hook-setting power. Again, in many cases, I can understand the gripes.

This Yo-Zuri Hybrid, however, is a great combinations of the best characteristics of both monofilament and fluorocarbon. You can fish it in cold weather without it becoming too stiff or brittle, the smaller pound-tests behave quite well on a spinning reel when used as a main line and you can also pitch around thick cover without worry of breaking off.
