tough line! Tough Line! Seems very strong and resistant to frays from normal wear due to casting MMuskie sized lures. November 21, 2014
Great line Have been using powerpro 30# test for several years now. Would not use anything else. Use for both my salt water and fresh water fishing. I know it is overkill for freshwater but the 30# is equal to 8# mono and fits my penn reals perfectly. For the salt water I have landed an 80 pound shark without any line issues. I find it more sensitive than mono. Recommend prowepro to anyone for salt or freshwater useage. November 19, 2014
Perfect for snagging Spoonbill! I have snagged spoonbill in several states and Powerpro is my line of choice. It gives you great casting distance,more stronger than the strength listed. You can get a few seasons out of one spool. I have tried other brands and have not found any line that compares to Power pro 50lb test. November 16, 2014
The Best!!! PowerPro Original!!! Read my other reviews, I've gone through a lot of line. PPO is the best braid out there, period. Superior line strength, knot strength (use the proper knot per application, see PP's website), and minimal fade compared to other brands of braided. I prefer this over the PP Super Slick 8 also. I have not had any line snaps or issues specific to the line after at least a dozen runs fishing lakes, rivers and streams using all types of lures and techniques. DO check the last 2 or 3 feet of your line every so often for abrasion and wear if you fish heavy cover or pull through rocks and rip rap T-rigging etc. It is best to cut off the last foot or so and re-tie if you have to. I'm using 20 pound test and it casts and handles great. They say to match the diameter of the line you're currently using when you switch to braided line, not always. Take advantage of the thinner diameter line and use 10 or 15 pound test if you're currently using a mono/co-poly/fluoro that's in the 6 to 15 pound range. Your casting performance will be amazing with the thinner line. However, if you do fish heavy cover and snag up a lot, go with heavier test so you can pull free. Going with light test or heavy has it's advantages in each specific situation, you just need to figure out what strengths and weaknesses you want to have. H I G H L Y R E C O M M E N D ! ! !

A: 
Hi, as others have stated it is either the knot or the line is old. You might return the line for a new box. Here is information about a Berkley Braid Knot: http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/berkley-braid-knot or try a Palomar Knot http://www.animatedknots.com/palomar/index.php?Categ=fishing. I hope this helps. Thank You!

Universal fishing line

New to fishing have two penn combos fierce and battle want to use one for bass and the other for saltwater snook etc,my ? Is are there any braided line that works well or that would work well for both rods for fishing banks/inshore/piers/docks etc any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A: 
For the bass, you could probably get away with 20 pound moss green PowerPro braid. For snook, use at least 30 pound test, but no more than 50 pound. I would to to around 40 pound test if you constantly fish around pilings and docks.

A: 
30 pound test is a good line size with many using 40 pound. There are occasions when giant tuna show up and even the heavier set up is not enough. But for tuna up to 100 pounds 40 pound test can do the job.

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

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 personally feel that it handles just as good as any monofilliment line and is much better because it does not have any stretch to the line like mono. 20 LB line will cast just like you are using 6LB mono

A: 
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.

I would recommend at least 50# mono on an a-rig. Nothing less. No leader needed, just go straight braid.

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.

I would use 65 to 80 lb for the Alabama Rig. Make sure you use a wide spool model baitcaster as casting distance will be longer versus a standard size reel

Very good choice for bass fishing. If throwing crankbait or spinnerbait could even go down to 15 lb

A: 
20# is not too much. If anything, its a little light for bass fishing if you are in heavy stuff. 20#-30# is common for bass fishing, green works well, as does brown.

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. I like the 20 LB because I can horse a monster bass out of the deep weeds without any problems. Try this line I am sure you be be as impressed with it as I am.

The 20# will work great & you will see the first time you get hung up or in thick grass. Green is the only one that I would use in fresh waters. The 10# line works just as well.

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.

it's is alway better to use a few feets of mono, because braided line doesn't give so you might pull the hook out of the fish mouth before the hook is set

Use the 30# line in green & as far as a leader goes it all depends what you are fishing for. Just to be safe use a 1 foot steel leader just in case you hook a toothy critter.

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

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 !

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.

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: 
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.
