Sunline's Best Selling Fluorocarbon In Our Sights : Sniper
Features: Performance features aside, Sunline offers special colors and different spool sizes for Sniper (200yds, 660yds, 1200yds). There's a BMS color scheme featuring three bright colors (pink, yellow, orange) to help line watchers keep track of their line, and an Invisible color scheme that transitions between a kind of brown to green, with some clear mixed up in there to help camouflage your line in the water. This is similar to the former Shooter Metan Invisible. There's also solid green and of course, clear.

Design & Ergonomics: For some reason, some of the early fluorocarbon lines had trouble turning cloudy over time. It's been a while since we've encountered a fluorocarbon line with this issue. Most, like Sniper, hold up very well to continued exposure to the sun and long term storage. Having to switch back and forth between test subjects as much as I do, there are times I'll go an entire year without changing line.
Sniper makes a good choice in a mainline for cranking
While all fluorocarbon lines, including Sniper, will demonstrate some latent memory problems the first few casts after long term storage, most, like Sniper, can be cleared up with fishing activity, or really, by pulling the line taught a few times while your bait is in the water.
Sniper is a very good
choice for an all purpose type of fluorocarbon line
Applications: Sniper is a very good choice for an all purpose type of fluorocarbon line - especially if you prefer to not tie on a leader and spool your line of choice directly onto the spool like myself. Sniper is makes for a very good mainline in support of any number of techniques save for maybe topwater applications where a floating line is more appropriate.
