It was Seaguar - I don't remember which color. I don't think I fish enough and have good enough technique to deal with how easily it tangles. Granted, it was 4# test but I could hardly see it to tie hooks on and I've never had a reel get tangled up so fast in normal fishing. Think I'll go back to mono since I fish a couple times a year right now.

I will say - it sure does disappear in the water. So maybe leaving as a leader makes sense.

It probably does tangle more and faster than mono but I've been using it so long that I have learned to mitigate the issues.

Yeah that’s what I call a goat rodeo.

I went back to trilene blue label green in 4 lb test. Not sure if the fish can tell the difference.
