Not very soft though is it, that's what the op asked for. Makes a great leader though.

Rig Marole CamH2O is very good......comes in quite a few BS and is very versitile.

The good thing about this is that it doesnt need steaming to straighten - just pull gently with 2 pulling tools etc to straighten, hold a few seconds and hey-presto perfectly straight.

the higher BS 20 - 25lb can be used for chod type sections as it is easily curved.

Take a look on YouTube etc....highly recommended

I do t think that any real flouro is soft.

They are not, which is why I tend to extend the length of my hooklnks when using fluorocarbon. If I was using a braided or coated braid of 8", I would extend the fluorocarbon one to 10". Kicks it away still and still pins down nicely. Used to do the same with mono as well, but don't use mono hooklinks any more other than zigs or floaters (which are very rarely used due to not liking zig fishing nor spending a lot of time after fish when the weather is warm & they are on the top (too many people out then for my liking!)

But IQ2, Kontour, Seagur, Fox And Mirage are all good fluoro’s and can be trusted

Seaguar Ace Hard. You will not find better believe me. Seems expensive but there is more than double the amount on the spool compared to Korda, etc & it is a TRUE fluorocarbon. I use the 23lb version for leaders & hooklinks and it straightens without needing to be steamed, knots like a dream, sinks like a brick and is abrasion resistant as well to boot. Breaks at the stated breaking strain as well with a good knot (half blood or palomar)

ESP soft ghost is decent. Even the standard ghost is pretty soft in 15.
