Seaguar Senshi Monofilament Line
Low stretch for a monofilament line
Although there are a few instances in which I like a high-stretch monofilament line, I’ve found the low-stretch properties of Seaguar Senshi Monofilament to be extremely useful on the water. After using it on a wide array of topwater popping baits and various crankbaits, I’m convinced it has helped me land a few extra fish.
It seems to be a pattern for me—whenever I make a really long cast with a topwater plug, a giant bass is going to eat it. The low stretch of this line has been very helpful in these instances as it has allowed me to get a more direct line of pull on hooksets. It doesn’t feel very springy on hooksets, which promotes solid hookups in the hardest part of a bass’ mouth.
I’ve also cranked a good bit with this line with great results. It has just the right amount of stretch so I don’t set the hook prematurely, but it’s not stiff enough to pull the treble hooks away from the bass.
Great knot strength
For 99 percent of my knots, I tie a Palomar knot. Everyone has different opinions and preferences, but it’s never let me down, so why fix it? While using Seaguar Senshi Monofilament, I haven’t had a single knot failure, even when yanking and pulling on a piece of cover to free my lure. I’ve actually bent a few trebles hooks while doing this.
You won’t notice a lot of friction when cinching your knot closed, which is great in regards to abrasion resistance. Although it feels smooth, I always—regardless of what line I’m using—thoroughly wet the line before cinching down on my knot. If you do this, you’ll have a great experience with Senshi Monofilament.
Simply put, this line feels like silk between your fingers. There are no inconsistencies in the spool and no random rough spots whatsoever. It’s very limp and doesn’t have any kink to it, which makes a number of tasks much easier. Whether I’ve been spooling a new reel with it or tying an intricate knot, I’ve been extremely impressed by how supple Senshi is.
It also stays flat on the spool, regardless of the conditions. Some monofilaments will loop and kink, but as you can see in the above picture, it stays very compact on the spool.
Casts a mile
Because Seaguar Senshi is so soft, its castability is insane. While some lines can feel sticky on your thumb when casting, Senshi glides across your thumb smoothly and effortlessly. I’ve covered water with crankbaits and made precise target casts to cover with prop baits and this line has made both accurate and long casts very easy for me.
If you’re like me and enjoy experimenting with different brands and types of line, I’d definitely recommend checking out Seaguar Senshi Monofilament. It has been an absolute pleasure to fish with and it’s going to stay in my boat for a long, long time.
