Braided Line Help

Recommended Posts

I have used SpiderWire Braid (I dont like), PowerPro, and Suffix 832. I like both PowerPro and Suffix they work good. I noticed the Suffix 832 sink faster rather the PowerPro tends to very slowly sink. I noticed PowerPro has the super 8 Slick line.

 

Which do you think is better, Suffix 832 Superline or PowerPro super 8 slick?

I think you'll find it 50/50. There are a lot of 832 folks on the forums, I'm a Power Pro guy, have used Sufix braids, but have chosen to pass over the Super Slick. I have talked with a buddy who loves S8S for both fresh and saltwater trout fishing.

 

Put it this way, there are great things said about both lines, probably moreso than bad things to be said. How's that for a muddy answer?

I like to use the 832 for musky fishin here in Wisconsin because of how it's more of a string than a cord. But power pro for bass because I like the way it's a cord. It's definitely a preference thing

Have you tried Daiwa Samurai? I feel this line is much nicer than both 832 and PP Super 8. It doesn't cost much more than 832 if you get it online. I changed out all my braid setups to Samurai and took off 832 in doing so and have no regrets.

Cortland Masterbraid if you can find it. If not I like the 832 in Ghost because it doesn't lose its color like the others.

I use regular Power Pro and don't bother with the gimmick's is what I call Super Slick, of course that is just my opinion.  Didn't really see much of any difference fishing with the standard and Super 8.  I also used Spiderwire too (when it goes on sale), what did you find wrong with Spiderwire?

I like the PP slick 8 its a lot quieter going through the guides. I have checked out the samurai and it will probably be the next braid I try Ive tried about every one of them. So far 832 and slick 8 are my favorites.

will try this. As I see from everyone else its 50/50 between PP and 832. Thanks everyone.

Skeletor has a good point about Samurai. It is a line I have on my radar to try as the feedback I have heard from some very respected anglers is overwhelming positive. I don't fish braid much but I will be trying some before this summer as frog fishing goes in full swing.

Only a couple of braided lines I've used that I didn't care for, as long as the line holds a good knot and is of average strength for it's class, that's good enough for me.
