I've just been given a spool of Sufix Tritanium by my local tackle shop, I have to write a short review of the line and wanted to know does anybody like it? anybody have bad experiences of it?
It is 8.7 kg or 19lb 0.35 mm. The spool contains 1120 m which is enough to fill four Penn 525s with some left over. 19 lb seems to me an odd strength, does it equate with it being 0.35mm diameter?
The colour is described as being Neon Yellow but its not as nasty as it sounds it is very similar to 'Varivas Old Gold'
The first thing I notice was how supple it felt compared to many of its competitors. It knotted very nicely and seems to have good strength at the knot. It also bedded well on the reels and after two gentle lobs I wasnt afraid to hammer a set of feathers to the horizon without any nasty surprises.
I took some of the spare line and rubbed it across the edge of a concrete window cill. After about five good rubs there was sign of abrasion damage, three hard rubs against the edge cut through the line. This simple test compares very well with Red Ice and F1.
I havent given it a good test yet over rough ground so I will take it down on the Shannon tomorrow to see how it goes under heavier conditions.

i started using the clear/white tritanium a few months back. mine is 7kg/15lbs and also .35m which seems strange as yours is 19lb and .35.

so far so good with it. i paid 27 localy for a 4000m spool which works out pretty cheap compared to the ultima distance i was using(12 for 1000m). ive been told that it has a habbit of nesting when dry so to make sure i have a few short casts first so the line gets wet before i try to hammer it out but ive used it in a field a few times with no trouble. any time ive used it for fishing its been over clean ground so cant comment on wether its any good for abrasion.
if it ran out tomorrow id have no bothers buying it again.

let us know your review of it when its done.

It's now billed as 'Hardcore copolymer fishing line.Tried it on the Shannon and it performed well, but no headwinds to cast into yet. Couldnt feel any 'abrasion lumps' when re -laying the line on the reel.So far so good.

Just as a foot note I have just had to change this line now so it lasted four months of seriously hard fishing. Imho it is one of the better lines on the market today and I am replacing it with another spool of the same stuff.

try and get the 4000m spool if you can. it works out better than most of the cheaper lines this way.
