    Question Anybody used "Mr. Crappie" line by Bass pro???

    Bought my first spool today, seems to be very hard to break with pretty good feel. I think it will be as good or better than stren hi-vis gold i have on a few poles. Think i gave $7.00 for the spool of Mr. Crappie line, over 1,000 yards. Not bad. Anyone used / using this line?? What do you think about it ?? Thanks for reading.

    stren hi-vis gold is hard to beat. I'd say 90% of the people in alot of the areas I fish use it and wouldnt use anything else. I might give mr. crappie a try if you say its good.

    Here in texas we use mostly Mr. Crappie hi vis line. Not much memory , very strong line & easy to see the bite. Good Luck on whatever line you choose

    Thumbs down I beg to differ

    We thought the Mr Crappie line was very tough, but the memory made it a pain to use for cast and retrieve on our ULs. Too many problems with line twist no matter how we spooled it. - Roberta

    my favorite line of all time was the HiVis gold line. but for some strange reason and i dont know why i quit using it and went to the low vis lines. right now im spooled with the green trilen xtough 6 lb line. its got a nasty habit of coming off the spool in a mess occasionally. Ive never tried the Mr Crappie line

    I use it all the time and like it a lot. I mostly vertical jig so casting is not a problem for me. It tends to get spool memory on the small spinning reels I use but they don't hold much line so after breaking off a couple of time I usually end up refilling the reel between every trip or two. I usually use the 6 lb yellow line because I can see it so well and I generally see more of my bites than I feel. My home lake (Mark Twain Lake in Missouri) has a lot of color to the water and the yellow line doesn't seem to hurt. I don't know about how it work in clear lakes.

    Good Luck

    Yes I use the BPS Mr Crappie camouflaged 4# line and like it. I have the Hi Vis line on one reel because it came with it also 4# test. I like it and the price is right.

    Default can't beat stren

    Mr. crappie line does seem to be tough and, the price is very good. I guess I just don't see the line as well as others do, so I still prefer stren
    I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin' and hook up with them later.

    Default Crappie line

    Thanks guys for the replys. I'll give "Mr. Crappie" line a fair trial, one thing i don't like to hear though has been "line memory". I use the little baitcasters, ( looks like a mini open face baitcaster reel ) for those wandering, get em down at Grizzly jig for around $7.00 - $8.00 each. When line with bad memory comes off looks like your fishin' with a slinky !! Won't do !! I will try it, just spooled one of the little reels up last night. Thanks again.
