    I have Mart, not convinced by the stuff for commie fishing TBH. Takes to much abuse for my liking and is not very durable, good for silvers and depth of winter F1 work, useless for anything else.

      isn't that one of the problems with flurocarbon is that it isn't very abrasive resistant ?

          Try the supplex rig mono mart- i’ve never used fluorocarbon but the regular supplex is good- and reasonably priced.

            Mart Flurocarbon is No good as main line
            I have never personally had any confidence using it for anything
            There are Anglers that use it in a limited capacity ,but its monofilament all the way for me

                Sorry Mart
                My mistake i assumed it was on a Reel lol
                yrs ago i was given a few boxes of it too try.
                I couldn't get on with it.
                i did use it for hook lengths on pole for a while ,but was never really happy with it
                It's a Marmite thing Mart some Love it or Hate it
                I am 1 of the Haters im afraid

                  I use it for my silver fishing but I prefer the milo version ties so much better imo....bit pricey but feels much more mailable and doesn’t seem to snatch/snare it’s self as aggressive when pulling through the knot on a spade hook

                              Just use Middy Lo viz for everything. Its quality line, strong and mics up superb.
