    They sell lots of mono. I have used the Super Trout Sight Edition and really liked it. Then they came out with Super Trout Advance Twitch Master VLS which is a very low stretch mono. This stuff I absolutely love. It is thin diameter, great sensitivity, and lays really nice on the spool. It comes in 3,4,5,6, and 8#test. I have one reel that I have had spooled up with 4# test for 17 months. I will usually change out line way before that but this is my test bed. Even after that length of time on the reel there is very little spool memory, and when testing the breaking strength it still breaks at 4# test. Varivas has a big assortment of mono.

    I love that Twitchmaster myself. I use the 4# on my ultralight tackle. It casts really nice. But I have so far never seen the Twitchmaster on sale. Maybe because it isn't one of their more expensive lines.

    Which version might be the best comparable replacement for the Stren clear blue 4lb. test mono I'm currently running? I'll be respooling all my reels for spring fishing and might consider some of this Varivas.
    Yes, I was talking to myself; sometimes even I have to ask for expert advice.

    Are you wanting a hi-vis or fluorescent mono line? clear? or a stealthy color?

    When comparing VARIVAS nylon monofilament (mono) lines to Stren and other brands, be sure to look at the diameters. Also important to note is that VARIVAS using a true/absolute break strength rating system.

    Example: 4 lb Stren Clear Blue mono has a 0.2mm diameter. The majority of VARIVAS 0.2mm diameter nylon mono lines tend to be rated at 6 lb.

    Not hi vis, clear or stealthy would be preferred.
    I'm no pro and would like to believe that the 4lb Stren I'm using actually snaps at around 4 pounds; I've never tried to confirm it in any way. If the same strength is thinner in the Varivas line, that is fine and dandy. Lots of give with the rods I use and the assumed stretch of my current mono absorbs the hook sets to where I've never broken off on the hook set. During the fight, yes but I have no way of knowing whether or not the line just snapped or got bit off by a toothy critter.
