What weight flourocarbon line for winter steelhead?

  1. 0X tippet .011in = 12lb. Rio fluoroflex in clear water for winter steelhead.
    12 or 15 lb. maxima for off color winter conditions and glacial streams like the Hoh.
    I have had fish break off on the take with 0X but not the fluoroflex and it has a smaller Diameter than other tippet. Maxima ultragreen .013 = 12lb.
    Measured in 100ths of an inch = 0X 1X 2X and so on. Each company seems to very to some degree.
    Just my observation at a glance if I am mistaken please excuse.
