500 yd for 25 bucks?? There's gotta be some kind of catch to it

I'm gonna grab a small spool to test

Compare it to PP lb for lb on strength

I've seen it.  First thing I would be looking is the line diameter, if thinness is what you are after.  I bought some Zebco braid at Walmart a couple of years ago, the 20# had the diameter of most 30# braided lines.  I'm still using it on a barracuda set up and it's been fine.

 

Braid is not about strength, it's about line management.

This is UsA braid green 30lb

The closest thing I have that is similar is some Cabelas ripcord

It's smooth. Tightly braided and slick

Ok

I've fished the 30lb on a caster and the 15lb on a light spinner

I'd say it fishes well. Casts smooth and behavior is typical for a braid

It's texture isn't the roughest or the smoothest Id place it middle

Of the pack

Similar to standard PP

The USA braid is made by HONEYWELL, which is the same spectra in POWER PRO. I'd imagine it'd get the job done if it shares components with power pro...

I have it on a few reels (spinning and casting), works just fine. Diameters are spot on with typical braids like power pro. 50lb = 12lb mono

If it is made by the same company as power pro, shares the same specs as power pro, then how is it more than a 1/3 cheaper than PP? There is definitely a catch somewhere.

Little to No advertising, sold directly by walmart(assuming), haven't seen it elsewhere to be honest.

I have only seen it sold at Walmart, I've had 10# on a size 30 spinning reel with no backing.  The line has been flawless with about 3 months of near daily use.  I have recently spooled up a couple of reels with 20#, the management has been what I expected but I have not caught any 40-50" fish on it yet.  I don't anticipate any problem with strength as my drag obvious isn't any where near 20#.
