I have tried it all. I use the XPS mono. Little bit higher but a lot better quality. I like the Bass Pro Braid, but I am a Power Pro fan myself.

Excel is good line especially for the money. I have used it for years but don't use mono much any more. It is a little stretchy, but I have used it from 4lb test to 30 lb test with no issues. Needing to "stretch" it as SilverFox suggests or having your spool too full is most likely the issue.

Been using the Excel Mono 6-10 lb on my spinning rods for many years, I change it often but its good line for the money.

I used to use it all the time. Now I just fish pline. I did have a bad spool of excel before. You could easily break the twelve lb line with your hands.
