Ryan Otto MN:  Recently I was asked to review Izorlines Platinum copolymer monofilament. When it comes to monofilament line I primarily use it for 3 applications, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and topwater. With that being the case I figured the only way to really get a good comparison was to spool it up and use it that same way. I used the 12 lb for crankbaits and spinnerbaits and the 8 lb for topwater. I have had some experience using this line for crankbaits in the past and just like before I loved it. It is lower stretch than some mono and also has low memory. One of my favorite techniques with a crankbait is to dredge along sand points with scattered rocks. I have always been very impressed with the abrasion resistance of Izorline while doing this. I also fished docks with the spinnerbait to see how resistant it would be to abrasion and was very pleased after rubbing it off of several posts. I was also happy with the 8lb test on my topwater rod although I never got a very good topwater bite going while testing. Overall I was very pleased with the performance of the Izorline Platinum. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.





Shaun Haag MN: I have been testing the Izorline Braid in 50lb test. The reason I'm still testing it is I don't want to take it off. Here in Minnesota we fish a lot of heavy vegetation and this line has preformed great. It is braided in a round form and handles on the spool real well. Izorline also does not coat the line which help with casting and control. The line is also dyed and holds its color very well. I have had the same line on my spool for over a month of fishing 3 to 4 days a week and is still not showing any signs of weakness. Izorline has one of the best braids I've tried! I look forward to trying more of their products. 





Darin Roddick-Small:  I recently had the opportunity to test out a couple of the different Izoriline brand lines. The line size that I tested was in the 10 pound size. I found their lines to be sensitive, with a relatively low amount of memory, but I did break off a few times. I was unable to determine if it was due to poor knot strength, or it I had nicked the line on zebra muscles. Aside from the couple of break offs I had, I did think the line was a solid product. I will be giving this product a further look to see how it performs in a lake setting away from the zebra muscles.
