Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 306 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Line I saw in some reviews of this line where it didn't hold up to its test rating. The spool I got held up and then some. The product they're selling here lives up to its billing. The high visibility yellow is the color I purchased and it's great. April 7, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by best fishing line I was turned on to this line by a good friend of mine several years back, and this is the only line i will use now. I spooled every reel i own with power pro and i recommend it to everyone i know now. I even made my dad a believer in power pro. March 24, 2014

A: 
Hi there,

Once the word "tuna" is uttered I always think that a heavier line would be best. The absolute lightest line I would use for the scenario you are proposing is 40lb but that is only if you can spool your reel with at least 200 yards, if not more.

I hope this helps. I am tied up right now but would otherwise chech the line capacity of the slammer for you. My Penn Battle is absolutely loaded with 40lb Power Pro (over 300 yards) but that is in case I accidentally hook a shark again while going after Cobia or medium sized tarpon.

I hope this helps

I fish small rivers for smallmouth using an ultra light spinning outfit and I was wondering if this would work better than mono. I usually use 4 pound mono but it breaks a lot due to jagged rocks and I was hoping for a more abrasion resistant line that doesn't sacrifice casting ability

A: 
This braid will work fine to replace the mono. I use 10lb in place of 4lb mono for crappie and I believe I can "feel" the bite much better plus I don't loose as many jigs because the braid is strong enough to bend a light wire jig hook without breaking. This braid will loose it's color quite quickly but otherwise it is great.

A: 
get a 20# braid (6lb mono diamter equivilent) or smaller, and you can't go wrong. I would think in a creek/river that had some flow, the water won't be super clear. This line is very abrasion resistent. If the water you are fishing is super clear, maybe use a 12" 6lb fluoro leader.

A: 
i have found that braided casts much farther than mono. also braided does not stretch so your reaction time is increased. as for abrasion, i have noticed a few times that when one of the strands does get nicked, you can see the fray and change it. i fish rivers as well but i used 15lb braided which i think is the diameter of 4lb mono. i have never lost a fish due to line breakage. (i even caught a 42" musky on 15lb braided)

Yes, but you will have to get used to using braided line. New users often complain that it wraps around the rod tip -- when wet it is much more flexible than fouorocarbon or mono.

A: 
Means that it casts like mono. A lot of braid is sometimes stiff, doesn't cast well, doesn't knot well, etc. This is super limp, casts very well, and knots are strong (assuming you are using a knot specific to braid line, as you MUST use a knot different than what is used for mono)

I think since it is relatively new, when people use this term, they mean that there isn't much difference in casting. I do a lot of bass fishing and pinpoint casting is critical. I was very comfortable first time off the spool.

I use 50 or 60 lb braid on A rigs and have no problems once I get the reel set up properly. I usually have to get to the back side if it hangs on wood but if I have to, I can usually muscle it off but pulling hard enough to bend the hung hook. The only time I've had to cut the line was when I threw over a limb and it did a triple wrap over the limb.

Have never used a 'bama'. When casting rubber worms or lures, I use about a 24 inch flourocarbin leader for better hook sets.
I would think 20 pound test for a 'bama' would be sufficient.

A: 
by RudeBaits: not sure what you're asking about 20lb being "too much" but you should select line based upon the reel you're putting it on and what type of fishing you plan on doing. Reels have suggested line size on them and 20lb is fine for fishing heavy cover or stained water where visibility is of no concern.

That is exactly the line and poundage I use except I purchase a bigger spool because I use it on all my reels including bait casters and spinning reels.

it all depends on what your fishing for and what type of cover you are fishing. I think 20lbs is a good line for the Big Bass when there is weed cover. I think you will like how good it performs.

A: 
I prefer green but I am starting to try the timber brown color for the power pro super slick 8 on a few reels. No real report on the color being any better.

20lb power pro is fine for most bass applications. If you are fishing near timber or vegetation you will be happy you went with 20 and not 15. Some people go as heavy as 50 or 75 for bass in cover but that isn't the kind of fishing I personally do.

I like to tie a modified albright and use a two to three foot leader of fluorocarbon on my power pro. Some people think that is a saltwater only method but I think it helps with visibility. You can also use a 15lb flouro leader if you want a thinner line profile or a little more sport to your fight.

Either way, good decision, the 20lb diameter is thin and extremely sensitive. Your hook sets should also benefit from the braid's no stretch qualities also.

I hope this helps

Q:

insore fishing..

Details: 
I will be going to Florida next month and am trying to get my saltwater set up ready. usually we just go fish and not wory about line or anything which may be the reason we snap alot of lines. in the years since ive been learning more and more about fishing but only fish freshwater.

So my question: can you just use a high lb. test mono. or fluro. line and get away with it, or would you suggest using a 30lb braided line and maybe a 6 foot mon. or fluro. leader with a lb. test heavier than the braided line?

again i will be doing mostly surf fishing or other places along shore.sorry if my question is confusing, ANY suggestions will help. Thanks.

A: 
I had to make a lot of mistakes and follow a lot of suggestions too.
My suggestion for surf would be to put the braid through a 3 - 5 ounce egg sinker. then tie on a barrel swivel. That will stop your sinker at the barrell. From the barrel, tie on about 4-5 feet of 50 pound flouro. then use a 2/0-4/0 bait hook. I like mustad for price. Braid has virtually no stretch. Very sesitive to bites. the flouro helps improve hook sets.everyone has their way of thinking. A med- heavy 7' rod will land most inshore fish.

A: 
I am not well versed in fishing salt water, but I would recommend going to at least 65 lb power pro. You have to understand that the 65 lb power pro has a diameter equal to 17 lb mono. It does not stretch like mono and only requires a mild hook set. With the 65 lb test, I would not use a leader. Use the palomar knot when tying hooks and lures. Good luck

A: 
I would splice it but that's what I prefer. And splicing it means start stringing your rod with equal lb test or higher mono or flouro then the braid for about 10-20 yards then tie the other line to the braid and string it all the way up and your done !

I have this on my baitcaster (50#), and on my spinning reel (20#). Works well on both.

A: 
by RudeBaits: Power Pro works great on both spinning and conventional reels. I have it on both. It's the only braid I use. The one concern is when fighting bigger fish and applying drag, the line can work its way between remaining line on the spool so next cast may "catch" a bit. Happens more often with conventional reels than spinning. Great line for west coast bass fishing in the kelp.

A: 
I use it on both. 15 lb. on my bass spinner and bait caster. 30 lb. on my saltwater spinner. 30 lb. on my saltwater troller. when trolling there is no rod tip bounce like with momo. Trolling, I tie straight to lure. Casting fresh or bottom fishing salt, I use 50% higher lb. flouro leader.

A: 
The line is great for both as I use 20LB in all my fresh water reels. I use bait casters and spinning reels depending on which type of cover I am fishing.In deep cover then I use my bait caster and if I am finesse fishing I use my spinning reels.

I noticed that this brad when first start fishing tends to float, but when it starts to retain water it will sink better. so I top water fish at day brake & when the top water action is over my line is ready to go to the bottom with no problems.

A: 
In my opinion, braid is better on spinning reels. Better sensitivity, stonger, thinner and casts farther than mono and flourocarbon. Excellent for lighter lures and more subtle presentations. I always use a flourocarbon leader tied w/ a uni to uni knot. If you're used to mono, set your drag looser and ease up on your hook sets until you get used to braid.

A: 
This type of braid can be used for both types of reels.

I prefer braid on my saltwater spinning tackle because:
(1) it does not typically get twisted.
(2) Line memory is not an issue with braid, which also lends itself well to spinning reels.
(3) Braid has a small diameter and you can put a higher amount of line on than with mono. It is comforting to know that my spinning reels have strong line and lots of it. That way if I hook into something big I know I have the line strength and yardage to handle it.

You can definitely use braid on your conventional reel but it handles such a high amount of mono you may want to experiment to decide what you like better.

it doesn't sink...its braid. Unless you get sinking braid, braid floats like mono.

I use 6" - 8" rubber sticko or dinger worms for bass. I think it sinks better.

A: 
Braid is going to float. Probably floats better the mono. But there is no stretch. There is a new braid that does sink. It's called flourobriad or somethink like that.

A: 
floro sinks much easier as that is what it's designed to do. braid is much stronger. braid is much more visible also so I recommend using it only in muddy water or around lots of structure. open/clear water choose floro

A: 
braid floats :) flourocarbon has a higher density than water so it sinks, mono is neutrally bouyant and braid has very little density because it is a bunch of fibers braided together, therefore it flots because it traps air in the little sections of fiber

A: 
Good question. Fluorocarbon has a lower density than mono so it sinks more readily. I believe that braid is more buoyant than fluoro but I could be wrong.

Braid is thin so it passes through water with little resistance. I am not sure what method or application you are using braid for but in my experience it sinks just fine.

I hope this helps.

A: 
Absolutely with out a doubt way stronger than mono or fluorocarbon. Go to Bass Pro Shop & check out the line diameter to see how large the other line has to be just to match up.
