   yes from SnakeHead (  12/7/2007 12:01:00 PM

   Great value from camobass (  12/7/2007 1:19:00 PM
 For the cost I don't think it can be beat. I haven't tried any of the high-end lines but the BPS flouro has worked great for me on both casting and spinning rods. I've had the best results with the 10lb and haven't tried anything heavier than 17lb.

   It's ok from bassaholic (  12/7/2007 1:31:00 PM
 But it doesn't begin to compare to Seaguar InvisX. I won't waste my money on anything else.

   Yes from Wayne P.  12/7/2007 1:57:00 PM
 I use it in 6#, 8#, 10#, 14#, 17#, and 20#.

   Used by one of MO's premier anglers from Nick H. (  12/7/2007 2:29:00 PM
 Dave Barker, perhaps the best competition angler in Missouri, uses it for nearly every application and ties a simple double improved clinch. Claims he has never broken off at the knot with it. He won two boats and another motor just this past fall.

   My question is... from PaulRoberts (  12/7/2007 3:40:00 PM
 Everyone seems to like it.

But I've wondered, Who makes it? It seems most store-brand offerings are a little more costly, or a little lacking somewhere, compared to the manufacturers premium product.

Testa vs anecdotes. The answer is definitely yes.

 I have not tried the BPS yet. I have been using Triple Fish for the last couple of years. I started buying it in bulk after I got comfortable with it. I would recommend testing several until you find one that fits your style of fishing,conditions and budget.

 Leave it to me to be the oddball. I tried it and had trouble with it breaking at the reel. A few times it would break while on the spool. No backlash and I would throw it and my bait would keep on going. I took it off my reels and switched to Segaur Carbon Pro. I might try the newer Segaur or triple fish but I won't go back to the XPS.

   One complaint from Hubert (  12/8/2007 3:26:00 AM
 The line is great but the filler spools have a big notch on the back that makes for hard filling using a pencil or the like as a spindle. The notch gouges fingers if held by hand or toes if your holding it yourself while spooling. It also catches the line coming off the spool occasionally so you have to stop to clear it. Aside from that, it is a good line and you save a few $ over others. I do like InvisX and Gamma a little more as they seem more supple to me.

   yes from FINS -N- GRINS FRESHWATER ADVENTURES  12/9/2007 5:53:00 PM
 I have used it for years and I think it is great for the money. BPS carbon is made by Seagar (carbon pro) I have used it in 6-20 lb test and never had a problem with it. I will say I like and now use the Hi-Seas carbon line but it does cost more than BPS. I feel it is worth money.

 Now that it's been brought up, I have had the same problem with it snapping mid-cast. It's only happened 2-3 times in the year or so I've been using the stuff, but since you brought it up it got me to thinking. I had always assumed that I had a tip wrap or something else that broke the line (10# on a baitcaster) but since you appear to have the same problem it may be something with the line. I never had the tell-tale curliecue of a bad knot, but it happened so infrequently that I didn't pay it much attention.

   Xps from g2072  12/11/2007 12:33:00 AM
 The XPS was the first FC line that I tried. I didn't have any problems with it breaking on the hookset or when I had a fish on but it would break on a cast. A few times it broke on the cast and the place it broke was still on the spool. I know it seems strange but it happened enough that I took it off my reels. I was using 10 and I think 12 or maybe 14 on crankbaits and jerkbaits. Like I said leave it to me to be the oddball.

 Did you give it a try? Let me know what you think! Karl: a69yank@aol.com
