Rated 1 out of 5 by simeon Maybe its me This line make a horrible noise as you reel it in, I purchased it because the local shop was out of Power pro. I have two identical rods and reels, star rod and shimano reel and i couldn't fish with it because the noise was so annoying. I had to put it down and use my other reel with power pro on it which was annoying because i needed two poles. Its expensive too, and i cant return it being I used it. last time suffix gets any money from me!!!! April 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by indyjoe Good quality line I have been using this for over 3 years now and really like it. I mainly fish for bass and use the 20# green. It is very abrasion resistant, casts well, is very sensitive and lasts much longer than mono. After landing an 8 pound largemouth that hit my spook and pulled me around the lake in my kayak after wenching it in through the weeds, I am sold on it. Every once in a while I get a wind knot but I can put up with that for the advantages. I prefer it on spinning over baitcasting tackle. The color fades over time but I don't understand why that's a big deal to anglers. It doesn't seem to matter to the fish! December 23, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by titen didn't like this line To look at this line, it looked a lot like Power Pro. The line knoted up and came loose on the spool. It doesn't cast as good as Power Pro. I returned it and got Power Pro. September 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by bassbasher1 I love this stuff. I really love how abrasion resistent this line is. It casts extemely well and doesn't dig into the rest of the line on your spool as much as other braids when you get snagged and are trying to pull it free. March 28, 2011

Details:I tried draided line a couples of years ago and on the retrieve it would make a grinding sound. is this common or should i try a differant type of braid line. i used fireline with a baitcaster.
A:That is common of most braids but I do think the newer braids are being produced to minimize that sound. I do not think it bothers the fish any so I ignore it.
A:new rods are built for use with braids.I like power-pro or suffix performance braid.But be sure your drag is set properly and don't go over ratings on your rod.

A:Yes. But, before you use it... be careful. It sounds wierd but there are two types of braid... flat and round. Flat braid digs into the spool and makes a MESS. Round braid works great. And in terms of backlash, I would actually reccomend it to people just learning baitcasters because they are 10x easier to get out with braid then fluoro (I don't ever use mono) because you can easily see the loops and knots in the line.
A:Yes you can but I prefer not doing that. When you do get a backlash it is a giant mess so I only use it on spinning tackle.

A:sure can. i use 50# sufix braid on my frog rod. i get wicked long and accurate casts with it.
A:I have but you need some weight to throw it well

A:Yes, put some mono backing on your reel first, and make sure to use a higher pound test line than you normally would as braids run thinner than mono. Getting a backlash with thin braid would be a nightmare, so make sure to keep your brake set relatively tight.
A:Yes, I run a few yards of mono on the reel and then tie the braid to the mono. It stops the braid from slipping. If you google your question or visit manufacturer's websites you can find out more. You can also search "fishing knots", there are some good sites.
Details:can you use a surgeon's knot to connect braid to 30- 50 lb mono leader. what other knots are good for this?
A:Suffix was a Taiwan company (Yao I Co., Ltd) that has been making fishing line since abut 1973. Suffix was bought out by RAPALA in 2008.

A:you can put some kind of compressible tape on the spool so the braid will dig in and grip, regular electric tape will work fine
A:Try spooling a few yards of mono to the reel then tie the braid to the mono and fill your spool. Google "fishing knots" for the best knots to use.

A:I had this problem when I first started using braid in the 90's. To make sure the line doesn't slip use about three feet of monofilament that has roughly the same diameter as the braid. Tie the mono to the braid using a blood knot, or other knot you can google online. A very simple knot that has decent strength is to double the line and tie an overhand knot. The main line is that if a fish has taken you down to your last five feet you've lost the battle already. That being said, with braided line don't let the fish clean you out, put additional pressure on the spool or tighten the drag before you're down to the bottom of your spool.
Ok, back to the answer: once you have a strong knot connecting the braid to the mono starter use this simple knot to anchor the mon to the spool arbor. Tie two overhand knots to the very end of the mono then tie an overhand knot so that the end of the line stops at the knot you just tied. I double the line around the arbor twice then I tie the overhand knot and move the line to the side until it is snug against the anchor knot.
That should do it, use youtube or google for a better knot description, BUT the mono is a must.
