This Sonic Braid Line features Stren's GlideCoat™ Technology, which produces a fast-casting, super-smooth, quiet and wear-resistant braided line that flies through rod guides for accurate, effortless, trouble-free performance -- cast after cast. With its high-strength Dyneema® polyethylene fiber construction that is stronger than steel, Stren Sonic Braid is tough enough to beat tree stumps and rip crankbaits through the thickest hydrilla when fishing in freshwater or hoisting giant groupers in saltwater. Sonic Braid resists wind knots other management problems, while delivering unmatched knot and tensile strength. The Sonic Braid's GlideCoat Technology lasts longer and holds color better.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Line I use this line in 10lb for almost everything but trout. Very good casts and durability. Color is staying perfectly August 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by tough I have used the stren sonic braid for years i think it is the best out there it is as tough as nails April 9, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product I have always used "STREN" products. I have tried other brands in the past but they never perform as well as "STREN" products. I am a shore fisherman and need smooth long casts. I fish soft plastics and crank baits and "STREN" allows me to get very long smooth casts. I continue to try other brands but always come back to stren!! March 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Braid on the Market1 I have been using Stren Braid with Gel Coat for 3 years now and I will NOT use anything else. I use the 65 lb with a 17lb fluoro leader to Carolina rig. The GelCoat makes castting this line really easy. I have yet to have a backlash that was hard to get out. If you fish tournaments like I do, you fish for 8-10 hours a day. If you are fishing and your line gets a little dry, either spary a lillte Reel magic on it or jsut dip the reel in water. Buy this braid and you will not be disappointed. March 30, 2012

30 pound test will do about anything you would ever need to do. If visibility is an issue, you can drop down to 14 pound test and be just fine. Smaller diameter is a little easier to manage also.

A: 
The poundage is dependent on where you are fishing. Extreme heavy cover would garner using 65lb+ If it's only rocks, I'd use 30lb test. It's thin and extremely durable. Last thing, the larger the line, the shorter distance in casting so if you are using a light lure, go with lighter line.

A: 
Yup I got some of the 12 lb diam (50 lb equiv) of the new "clear blue fluorescent" braid. I love it but I got specifically to use on my new pike set-up, where I always use a black steel leader. This line is High visibility and can even be lit up by a black light at night! the color description "Clear blue" is a little misleading, its more white with a hint of blue. high viz, yes, but it has its uses for sure!
If you are looking for a low visiblity braid go with the Low vis green, the stuff is amazing, best braid on the market if you ask me.
Lastly I have to disagree with the other poster who suggests using mono as an all around line. I say use low vis green Stren Sonic braid as an all around line! Why not take advantage of the uber strengh of braid and the amazing performance of this sonic braid! mono is just too stretchy and weak IMO

Hi! Never heard of a flourescent blue sonic braid. Did not know they had that. I would stick with mono if I were you inless you are going to use braid only for pitching and flipping and fishing plastics. Don't use braid all the time. Mono works great for an all around approach.

Unless the spool is braid ready, you should add a mono backing. An option is to add a strip of electrical tape to the spool for the braid to grip.

Its excellent for heavy cover jigs. First is that it is ultra sensitive. Second is the no stretch aids hook set in cover. Braid will also cut through some of weeds and grass during the cast and battling a fish.

This is an excellent line for all heavy cover applications. It has a super thin diameter and casts a mile on my baitcaster, further than any other braid I have used on my Abu Garcia Revos. I love it. It is super strong, thin and very supple. I would recommend it to anyone. I was never a huge braid fan on baitcasters until I tried this line, I use the 20lb test on my Revo Winch and will keep on using it.

This is the best line for heavy jigs in heavy cover. I have caught tons of bass deep in the weeds and manage to still pull them out. Sometimes they have such thick weeds on them I can't find the bass.
I use the 30 pound line all the time.
I just wouldn't buy spiderwire stealth I think that line has something against me.

Braid is generally preferred over Mono and Flourocarbon in heavy cover simply for it's strength. It also handles much better than heavy test mono. Whatever brand you prefer will take some experimenting. I personally prefer the original Stren Super Braid or Suffix braid.

Absolutely. May want to drop down one notch in rod power if you are not using a HEAVY wire hook. Since there is no stretch in the line, it is possible to straighten regular hooks with a heavy rod. Should do a very good job for you in the "junk". Good luck....

A: 
Absolutely. Make sure you use a higher test though. I found that if I use the 80 lb test, my hook would bend before I lost the lure. Makes it an excellent choice to go with. The issue with the 80lb test is that the diameter will not allow for a very far cast & has tendencies for line memory (if you use line conditioner, this should be less of a problem).
I am probably going to scale back a bit & try for 50lb test this year. The 30lb was great for casting distance but the line wasn't as strong if you got tangled. Hope this helps!

I've used this mostly in freshwater, but have fished off our nearby saltwater pier a few times. Never had a problem with the color fading.

One thing to note is, that it soaks up water more than monofilment line. If you are fishing saltwater, be sure to rinse your reel afterward so the saltwater retained by the line doesn't corrode your hardware.

I have not tried it in saltwater, however it does start to lose its color after about 20 - 30 casts in fresh water. I have used braids that hold their color better in fresh and would use that as a guideline for salt too... It is however one of the thinest diameter, strongest and best casting braids I have used to date. I hope this helps.

A: 
Not necessarily. If the water is off color, go with straight braid. If you are concerned with visibility, use a 3 or 4 foot leader of fluorocarbon. If you want to use straight braid, lighten up on the rod power one notch. Don't need a pool cue to set hooks with braid, besides, a softer action rod will be lighter and easier to handle during a long day of fishing.

A: 
It depends on how you are fishing. Typically, the only time to add a leader to braided line is if you want a more realistic presentation of your bait. This is useful when the fish are much less aggressive or the water you're fishing is super clear. If this is the case, use a floro leader for it's low visibility properties. Other than that, there is really no need to add a mono or floro leader to braid.

I can't even explain the greatness of this line. I love Stren's mono, but their braid has even better casting ability and has awesome abrasion resistance. This line works great with spinnerbaits, but I can't say that Spiderwire won't work either because I have never used it before. I will continue to use Stren's sonic braid on all of my reels spinning and baitcast because this line is so limp and easy to handle.

This would be a great idea for fishing at night. I use braid while fishing a Chatterbait at night because of the sensitivity; you feel every thump of the blade or vibration of the Chatterbait. If the fish are lethargic, they may only suck in the spinnerbait. With braid, you will feel the blades quit turning, allowing you to catch some fish you may ordinarily miss because you did not know they bit!

For quality and performance you can not beat Stren even with spiderwire Steath!
Stren Sonic braid is tops in my book so why not make it tops in your book?
This braid has it all small diameter, castability, and it is super strong.
Sonic braid casts smoothly and fantastically far so why not give it a try?

A: 
I used the regular Stren Super braid & the Spiderwire. I always tie my knots with a Palomar knot. I lost more lures with the Spiderwire than the Stren. I've caught quite a few bass on spinner baits. There's no issue that I found yet. It's not the typical use for braid but when you have a low budget, this holds up better than your fair share which means a lot less lost lures.

Hope this helps. Fish on!
