I have been using 30 pound power pro for years I like it for the most part.
I does tend to tip wrap from time to time.
Is there any new braid that you all like better or should I stick to what I know ?

Thanks

I stick pretty much to what I know.

I really like the power pro super slick. 8 strand so far it seems great with very little line twist.

What type of fishing are you using it for?

If it's float fishing for steelhead, I've been using 14# Berkley Fireline Crystal for years and really like it. Cast well, floats well which makes mending easy, and seems to wear well over time.........Tip wrap issues was the reason I went away from 30# Power Pro.

I have switched to using braid for almost everything.

Power pro seems to deteriorate after a few years and loose it's strength. I have some tuna and halibut reels with tuffline that's almost 30 years old.

Yes, I've been using it too. My question is do you like the High Vis?

I found the same thing, so every 2 years I turn the line around on the spool.

I just got the power pro super slick V2 and can't say enough about it, it's awesome! I liked the 30lb so much I bought 65lb for my salmon/sturgeon rod. I do kinda want to try the tufline domin8 just to compare though because I've had good luck with tufline too.

Same for me on both. The super slick is great.

Tuff Line XP Great product and super strong. I use 50 LB for winter Steelhead with long leaders or you can use a monofilament bumper in front. I lose very little gear other than the leaders. Have had no issues getting bit regardless of water conditions. I fish in a lot of rough real rocky Boulder water and it holds up well. It’s not cheap but worth every penny you spend. Use 65 and 80 Lb for Salmon fishing . Bobber and back bouncing both. It’s money.(y):)
