I've been looking to stock some more 4lb lines and having my eyes on P-line FloroClear ($7.99 - 300y) , P-line CX ($7.49 - 300y), and Izoline XXX ($15.99 - 3350 yards or $16.99 for 6000yard of 2lb), and I've like to know some pros and cons about these line if anyone has experienced with them
Howdy all…have a question for you ultra-light fans.. I recently spooled two ultra-light reels with Spiderwire 4lb line. Went out Monday and fished for a few and had line flying off the reel in clumps.. .. Spent about half the time untangling the knots.. I spooled the line correctly as far as I know…didn’t curl up on itself each time I checked it…
Durability: We fished with the 4lb P-Line Floroclear during the entire field test. While 2lb lines will help you cast farther with lighter lures you definitely will find yourself losing more lures, and potentially losing large fish if you try and muscle them. With 4lb line you have a little more backbone when turning these energetic fish, and still can relish the fight. P-Line has always been known for high durability, and are often the #1 choice for Fly Fisherman when it comes to choosing strong tippet. In P-Line tradition Floroclear is extremely durable for such a thin line. When in the backcountry your lures are often inches from the bottom and your line is in constant contact with rough abrasive surfaces. At the end of the 3 day trip the entire line remained in excellent condition, and ready to tackle our next destination.

I have been searching the web and have found very little on Striped Bass records in CA. The California landlocked 4lb line class record is around 14lbs. The world 4lb class record is a hair over 40lbs.
