Amber 100% Fluorcarbon Leader ?? Anyone tried ?

Got some of this stuff for $10 delivered from the Bay, for 4lb at 50m lenght. Apprently made in Japan as the seller and sticker claims. Havent used it but but on a straight pull, I cannot Break it b/n my hands. It seems very strong for 4lb but seems finer than say 4lb FC Rock. Seems supple, haven't tried it for knot strength. Seems easy to bite off with the teeth however so not sure if good around snags where I will use it.

Anyone else tried this stuff ?

I have been using the 32lb for offshore plastics and it has performed as well as any other purchased direct from Japan that I have used. Small diameter for the breaking strain - about the same as other brands, such as Yamatoyo in 25lb.

Can't provide any opinion on the 4lb though.
