When swinging flies you don't need the supposed benefits of fluorocarbon such as "invisibility" and "strength/diameter ratio". Save yourself some money and stick with the Ultragreen.
good fluorocarbon sustains some damage from nicks and abrasions.
that's quite an issue on some salmon rivers, where tippet violently trashed against rocks during fish fight.

that's a main reason of using it for me. however, mono line (not always, it depends on a brands compared) provides slightly better knot strength, having the same diameter.
