I agree, Maxima Chameleon is great for pin.But being stiff, it is harder to untangle if you get into a bird's nest. I use this for my CP. I just bought some Sunrise Siglon FF lines in 16 n 20lb test.
Apparently, these float better. Cost US$16.49 a coil of 200metres. CHeck it out on Google.

I uset to use Maxima Chameleon line 20 LB it works reall well. This year on my Centerpin I  useing 20 pound Berkley big game in hi vis green.
One thing I do is uni knot a piece of 20 pound Seaguar flourocarbon to my mainline (around 6 feet) this keeps my mainline not visible near my terminal tackle.

I put on pink Chameleon line (very hi vis as well) this season and was worried about the visibility as well. I've caught 3 fish so far, so i guess it doesn't matter much ... but it is visible under the surface.

I've been fishing this line for years. Double uni knot and some 15lb ultra green makes it invisible under water  ;)

i use 12 lb ultra green for mainline for my cp , its plenty strong enough for 20 lb steelhead. but you have to change it  probably  twice a season, depending on how much you use it.

X2 Been using this line for years with 10lb ultra green for leader. High water - Low water - Colored water - Gin clear water. I like it and so do the steelhead! 8)
