Nylon monofilament is popular and inexpensive. Although it stretches quite a bit and is subject to abrasion, its translucency, castability, and easy knot-tying qualities make monofilament a good all-around line.

Braided Dacron line is more sensitive than monofilament and is a better choice when you have a lot of line out, such as when trolling or fishing in deep water.

The new multifilament lines are replacing both monofilament and Dacron for many situations. Its greater strength for the same diameter as mono or Dacron makes multifilament superior, especially for larger fish on baitcasting or conventional reels.
