Seaguar Smackdown Tournament Braid - 150 Yards
Good and Bad
First, this is the thinest braid bar none and cast an unbelievable distance. I have spooled several spinning reels with 15 lb Smackdown and have experienced more than normal line breakage. While fishing Shad I use a 6 lb fluro leader and when snagged, as often happens Shad fishing the 15 lb Smackdown braid broke before the lighter leader, often losing 50 yards or more of the expensive line. I had similar problems fishing for Snook in Florida. I'm not sure if the line nicks easy but something is going on. However, I am intoxicated by the casting distance and will probably keep using it. Tying knots with the line is a challenge but an improved Albright has been working for me.

I purchased this line for bass fishing and was extremely disappointed. The tensile and knot strength of this line is extremely low and it breaks at pressures much much lower than what it's rated for. The only good thing about this line are how thin and smooth it is. The thinnest and smoothest I've used.

My first impression of this product was it is super thin and amazingly soft, I was instantly sold. But tying knots is a major challenge. I always fish light line so I got the 10lb for snook and red fishing the flats, I like a challenge. Tying a uni to uni braid to floro leader is imposable. After wetting the knot and cinching it down a slight pull would snap the line every time. So I tried a few other knots with the same result. In all my years of fishing I have never been more disappointed in a fishing line.

I have used Power Pro Super Slick on my spinning reels in the past and loved it. This stuff is better. It is much thinner and still very strong and sensitive. I don't ever get wind knots with it (I did sometimes with Power Pro). It is also a great price at Bass Pro compared to other retailers. Try it. You will like it.
