What’s the best line to use for pitching jigs?


Berkley FireLine is a great line choice for vertical jigging, but when it comes to pitching jigs, there are better choices. In the past I have mainly used 6 pound Berkley Sensation – a limber line for casting, but low stretch for better sensitivity. However, with the introduction of Berkley’s Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon XL, I must say that this is the best line for pitching jigs I have ever used. This is a fluorocarbon line that is designed to be limp enough to work well on smaller spinning reels, and still have the characteristics that makes fluorocarbon so advantageous like low visibility and high abrasion resistance. I am also impressed with the knot strength, even in the lower 6 pound test diameters.
