They made that new line thats red that fish "Can't" see. Has anyone used it or know if it works or was told it works. I want to know I have to re-line all my reels and want to know if its worth it or if i should just try it as a leader. I pulled Maxima off no complaints about it other then price but if thats the line to use its going back on no matter what. but i was just intrested about this cajun line. let me know thanks.

i used it on my spinning rod, i dont know if it dissapears, it is comparable to the other lines out there. knot strength and everything were good, but it seemed not to be verry abrasion resistant so i still prefer either maxima or berkley vanish, but my dad swears by this stuff, but iff you read the box it doesn't "dissaper" untill like 9ft. but im still not bought on the whole red thing. but for the price its good line

I tryed it when it first came out and was not impressed with it as a small stream trout fishing line. The rocks like LG said really put a hurting on it and it seemed a little stiff. So I went back with Maxima the next time I was in Baldwin.

Here's the deal on Cajun Line. I have tested and used it extensively on Striped Bass in the southern impoundments. As for using it in streams and rivers, I doubt you see much advantage. Although the red light spectrum is the first to disappear under water, this does not completely happen until around 25' to 30' of water. I do see the advantage when fishing deeper water, anything over 30 feet, and up to 45' or more because the line does become invisible to a fish's eye quicker than blue or darker lines. Being an open water line, it may not be as abrasion resistant as some others...
