Not so sure about the thin diameter bit on a Co-polymer.

I used to use Yo-Zuri Hybrid for years and it was and indeed it still is a fantastic line for certain applications, it sinks better than a mono but nowhere near as good as a true fluoro however, it behaves far better on the spool and does not want to poor onto the floor the minute you open the bail arm and it is fantastic for abrasion resistance.

Currently I am on Gardner Hydro Tuff which is also a co-Polymer and in 15lb it comes in at 0.38mm which is not thin by any means but, as tough as old boots which is what I require at present.

I order mine off Amazon from the States, they use it a lot for Bass fishing over there.

I use P Line Floroclear, nice line, sinks well, but is not the best casting line compared to mono.

Getting hold of it can be a problem; I end up going through ebay sellers to find best price and delivery, which recently have been coming from Poland.

I have used Yo-Zuri Hybrid in the past. Great line, loved it but it became harder to find it so moved on. is it available again now? I wouldn't use it now because I am very happy with what I am on now (CM90) but if I was after a main line (and CM90 was not around) I would go back to it.

I still have a few spools of 8 & 15 in green and clear (grey) which I have been happily using as hook-link material on the Trent. It doesn't appear to age.

Very good line.

I've used Yo-zuri Hybrid for years, only ever needed 12lb even in France, sinks well, little memory, strong knot strength, very good abrasion resistance

Hi has anyone got/had experience with this stuff? It's supposed to have the advantages of a good mono but still sink like a brick while maintaining a thin diameter.
