"My most favorite technique to catch bass is SIGHT FISHING. That's METAN Over the years, I learned when you sight fish you give a lot of pressure to the bass even when you are using CLEAR fluorocarbon line. When you're sight fishing most of the time you will be fishing in shallow water, so in shallow water the more you give the bass pressure the more the bass relate to the cover. So that's why I produce this camouflage fluorocarbon line. So I just matched the color of the cover that the bass relate too. If the bass are relating to GRASS the color is GREEN, If the bass are relating to BRUSH or TREES the color is BROWN, If the bass are relating to ROCKS or RIPRAPS the color is going to be GREY.Just think these are the three cover colors that the BASS LOVE to relate too."
"This METAN line will help you catch more fish when you start using IT!! Here are some tips: When you are fishing GRASS rig your lures at the GREEN part of the line, so you will be camouflage in the GRASS. When you are fishing BRUSH or TREES rig your lure at the BROWN part of the line. When you are fishing ROCKS or RIPRAPS rig your lure at the GREY part of the line, so you will be camouflage and also you will not give out any pressure to the BASS that you're trying to catch. Have fun." Jun Shoji (creative head behind Sunline's Metan and other products)
Comments: you just need to re tie your knot after hauling in trees or catching a big fish you will have much better luck. i know this is great line!
Comments: Broke the bank on this line, and had an epiphany. Been using it a couple weeks. Having bought pretty much every fluoro out there, I finally figured out why I have problems finding a fluoro that holds up to abuse. I keep thinking abrasion resistance is the answer to the equation, because that's what I'm being told by manufacturers and their sponsors. This line is the most abrasion resistant I ever tried. First cast, i can haul in a tree, but 2 or 3 trees later and it snaps with hardly any effort. I came to the conclusion that it doesn't matter how much you spend on fluoro. If you get hung up and you stretch it, It stays stretched and it gets weaker and weaker. Love this line in open water, for bottom contact baits. Casts great, is sensitive, and will definitely last longer than average fluorocarbon for that application. But no more fluoro anywhere there are snags for me. Just doesn't hold up.
