Best Brand Of Braided Line

Recommended Posts

Like the majority here if I were forced to pick just one I'd go with regular Power Pro. I was a huge fan of Super 8 Slick but had an unfortunate breakoff/cutoff that left me with very little confidence fishing this line using any technique without a leader. I was fishing a Spro Bronzeye Shad when it happened so I of course had the braid tied directly to the bait. I fished S8S for over a year and never had a single issue with it until that one but it was enough to cause me to switch.

 

You asked earlier if S8S was as abrasion resistant as Power Pro and in my opinion no it isn't. No braid is really abrasion resistant, just the nature of the line, but S8S cuts very easily.

 

I'm currently using P-Line Spectrex Braid and love it. I'd used it in the past but it became difficult for me to find locally so I switched to Power Pro. I decided to just break down and order some.

 

I also like Spiderwire Stealth and Ultimate braids. I've got one reel spooled with the InvisiBraid that I'm liking as well but it feels really similar to S8S after it gets broken in so it may be another braid that cuts easily. I've tried Sufix 832 on a limited time basis and didn't like it due to one minor thing, it sinks. I frog fish a lot and it was affecting the action of my baits so it had to go. Otherwise it seemed like a great line. Sufix Performance Braid has been trouble free for me as well the times I've fished it.

 

As I said Power Pro is a very good "all around" line, it may not be the best in any single category but all totaled it's pretty good.

I would also have to say Sunline FX2 but if I was on a tight budget and had to pick another brand I would go with power pro.

The one on sale.

 

True enough, as long as they're not pawning off some old braided Kevlar!  :laughing7:

The young fellows today believe that "braid" is synonymous to polyethylene (it is not).
