PowerPro Super Slick Braid Fishing Line - 300 Yards
Slick is the Trick
Want to cast farther? Want to cover more water with your lure? Well all good fisherman who fish with artificial lures (myself included) know that in order to catch fish, your lure needs to be in the water, and the more water you can cover allows you to present your lure to more fish. Especially when you are fishing with crankbaits, spinner baits, swim baits and top water lures. Well in order to cover a lot of water, you need to get the most distance you can out of each cast. Power Pro line is well known for it's castability. Now the Power Pro folks have added Power Pro Slick to the mix. In my opinion, "Slick is the Trick" to getting the most out of each cast. The line is durable, strong and the timber brown color is great. It does take some getting used to when tying knots with it, as it can be slippery in your hands when tying. Other than that, I highly recommend this braided line. I use only Power Pro line on my two favorite rods. One is spooled with regular red colored Power Pro and the other has the brown colored Power Pro Slick. Give it a try, Slick just might be the trick for you to get more distance out of each cast.

dont know yet
i just bought power pro super slick in 10# hi-vis yellow.
i did not try it yet in water.
so i went out back and tested it in yard.
it casted very well with no noise.
after 3 casts i got BIRDSNEST.
this was on great reel shimano 4000 series.
what i think happened is line was DRY.
BIRDSNEST was very bad and where the knot was, i saw it frayed.
i dont know if i will cut it off there or not yet.
after i soaked the spool in sink with water i had no issues casting it,no birdsnest.
i read some anglers soak their spools before they go fishing .
i am using it in clearwater with a 5 ft flouro leader.
then using a dark green marker to dye the braid about 5 more feet .
will update as i use it .

I can't provide a comparison of braided lines because PowerPro Super Slick is my first ever deviation from standard monofilament in 30 years of fishing. I have been reluctant to change what has worked. I also didn't want to spend $20+ on fishing line (seems a bit high when mono is like $5) That being said, if you are on the fence about getting into braided line, hopefully you will find encouragement in this review, because I absolutely love this line. It was worth every penny, even at $21.99. The reason I got into this idea of braided line was because I saw a couple of guys catching lots of bass by slowly finessing Roboworms on the lake bottom. They would get really subtle strikes and they were landing them left and right. I gotta say, that's the first time I ever thought that monofilament maybe didn't cut it. I wouldn't have felt many of these hits. I would say if you are Texas or Carolina rigging finesse worms, you gotta try this stuff. Use a fluorocarbon leader, and you are all set. It could be that any braided line would have given me a great impression - but I must say this stuff does exactly what it says, no tangles, casts forever, quiet, great strength for the diameter of it) I could go on. I use the 20 lb test (6lb mono equivalent) and I am really impressed with it. I know there are a lot of variables that go into successful fishing, so I can't realistically say that this line has improved my fishing, in and of itself. However, this line has greatly improved my ability to detect very subtle bites and strikes. You can feel the slightest brush against this line. For instance, if a leave floats by and bumps it, you actually feel it. To that end, I think I'm a better fisherman with this particular line because of its sensitivity. I got the brown color and it blends with the Arizona gravel beds nicely and becomes almost invisible. The color does fade, a bit - but it just gets a lighter tan color, which is no big deal. Great stuff and highly recommended.

New power pro
Everyone using braid needs to know power pro is different...... Anyone saying they get wind knots is not using PP (power pro) or is a beginer with braided lines if not its probobly just a small adjustment in your cast... Ive been using PP FOR 15 yrs now and other braids since there invention. wind knots are extinct w/ PP. It does the things Mono & Fluro are known for better execpt invisibility.. Thats why we use leaders. PP Is always better when conected right to the line, the knot should be of your preference. Only use a swivel when live lining eels ( whole other topic )Just a heads up NOT ALL BRAIDS ARE THE SAME.. Tuff Stuff,P- line Spectra & suffix are the only 1's similar to PP....
