    Will I need to use a leader with that? I'd like to avoid having to use one for trout

I've heard a lot of good things about the blue moon fluorocarbon in 2lb, but at the same time I don't want anything that will break too easily.

    It breaks at 2.3 pounds consistently. Iíve tested it on a Bouz Drag checker dozens of times. Itís knot strength is superb. Castability is superb. I have tussled with several 3 pound catfish and it holds up to them. It is not a line I would use for trout fishing due to the color. It is fluorocarbon so it sinksÖwhich is why I have it on my reels. A 1.5 gram jig head can get down to 23 feet pretty quick casting. The polyester line I use breaks a lot easier than the Blue Moon yet I land 14-17 inch Spotted bass with itÖthe Blue Moon will give me more cushion with those fish more so than the polyester. For me the answer is noÖit does not break easily.

    Regards

    Because we're in trout season here in CT, I think that a line that's good for trout is a big factor. Do you have any suggestions

    The Twitch Master line is great for trout in a stream. I use an FC leader with it. I have reels with 3# and 4# test. Very low stretch nylon line. I have landed a lot of trout with the 3 and 4 poundÖ..caught quite a few 17-19 inch fish on the 3# test Twitch Master no issues at all. It is the only nylon line I useÖ.itís good stuff.

    Regards

    If I’m fishing where 20” plus trout are I seem to always go back to 2lb sos and I use a leader as well.

    After reading all of the hype about the SOS line I ordered a large spool of 2# .
    After more investigation, I found out it was .006inch in diameter . Thatís actually about 5# diameter line and a larger diameter than 4# P-line . And , the SOS will break way before the 4# P-line does .
    Sure wish I hadnít ordered the SOS .

    No leader needed.

    Suffix makes an ice fluorocarbon thatís hi-vis orange thatís decent at a great price.

    The Sunline BMS fluoro in 2.5 or 3 would be an excellent choice if your ok ordering from overseas.

    And of course thereís the new Varivas Blue Moon Ajing fluorocarbon, in a 2, 2.5 or 3, but itís out of stock in the domestic market right now, but Iíve seen available in the JDM shops.

    The Blue Moon fluorocarbon line is now back in stock (as of 10/7/2021) at at VARIVAS America.
