I used the 10# high vis yellow last year for a bit. I didn't think it was anything special. I went back to 832 now that they offer high vis yellow.

I have it on my spinning reels in the timber brown. The color fades just as fast as all the other braids. The waxy slickness is great for handling but wears off just like the other braids. It has more strands in its weave so its alot like 832. I find it as poorly abrasion resistant as all the other braids. I bought 3 spools. The first one was a nice dark brown, the next 2 were only about half as dark and lost their color quicker.

I have it and love it alot smoother then regular power pro. It does fade but no more or less the regular power pro.

Be sure to use a mono or fluoro leader for the shock absorption when fish surge at the boat.
With a leader, color fade is a non-issue.

Used it on my bait caster and spinning reel all last year and had no problems with it. Performed really well mainly just fishing jigs and soft plastics with it.

I actually prefer the regular power pro. For colors, I stick with red or green...
x2. Prefer regular to super slick.

Not as good as the old stuff imo. I tried the slick 8 on my saltwater spinning reel, it seperated and twisted pretty bad..invisbraid or 832 braid on my reels.
Did anybody see that show Beyond the Cast with JP DeRose ? He tested 5 or 6 braided lines and he comfirmed that super slick 8 was the best.
No surprise there , isn't he sponsered by shimano/power pro....Com'on man !
