For hook links, particularly zig rigs, this stuff’s great. It virtually disappears once submerged and the 8lb stuff that I’ve been using is lovely and supple.

It’s abrasion resistant but you do need to take care when tying knots in it. This is the case with all lines, but this stuff does seem to ‘punish’ a careless knot more than other lines. Kinks can be straightened out by running the line between your fingers under tension, providing they’re not too severe. I’ve also found this to be far less susceptible to line twist than many other lines, which is often an issue with long, zig hook links.
