Weren't you a big time Big Game guy...?

I've been an 832 guy for a while.

That has been my braid of choice for some time now, and it has been fantastic for me.

I’m braid shopping, something light like 15-lb or even 10. What makes this stuff better than say Power Pro?

8, 10 and 15lb Power Pro is pretty slick casting line after a few minutes of casting.

I use 8,10, and 15 PP on my spinning reels and it's fantastic handling line.

If you think PP is fantastic handling line don't use Sufix 832 Superline cause you'll throw rocks at PowerPro!

I like the 832 on spinning reels and PP on casting reels due to it being a little stiffer.  832 is pretty limp stuff which is what I look for in a line for a spinning reel.

I am assuming that you are shopping 10-15 pound braid for spinning set up. If so Sufix 832 will be better choice with it being an 8 carrier braid while regular Power Pro is a 4 carrier braid. 8 carrier braids are better for spinning set ups since they lay on the spool easier for spinning set ups.

No doubt Power Pro starts out stiff & gets limper, I don't wanna wait on that!

 

I don't want too stiff or too limp, I want an in-between but more to limper side.

 

I'm flipping-n-pitching-n-punching heavy Texas Rigs & Jigs in dense cover. I like keeping a certain amount of tension on your line while at the same time keeping a certain amount of slackness in my line. 

 

832 Superline is that blend 😉

100% yes. These PP light pound test lines are super limp and easy to deal with. Never one issue.

832 is good stuff. It and regular PP are the only two brands I use...still use a lot more regular PP though, but braid doesn't go on my baitcasters except for 1 or 2 specialty setups.

I've thought of trying 832, but as I can get PP for a few dollars less than Sufix, I buy that instead. Never had an issue on my jerk/crank BC with the 20#...will see how the 50# works on my flip/pitch BC this year.

Since low-vis braid turns into hi-vis braid after a few trips, does anyone buy hi-vis (like yellow) braid and use it with a leader? I've been considering this lately to help detect bites. Except for frogs. I'll keep that straight green braid. Maybe.

I use both hi-vis mono and braid when float and drift fishing steelhead, depending on temp.  I've had braid freeze so when the temps drop I switch to Big Game in the Solar Collector color.  It makes it much easier to see where my bait is, but I do run 2 to 3ft worth of 6lb fluorocarbon.

That's all I buy and use now days. Yellow in PP and Neon Lime in 832. Have compared those two against red, green, and smoke on my waters and seen no difference in quantity or quality of fish, so I now go with the easiest line to see, as I believe that's a distinct advantage.

Line color has never been an issue as for as I'm concerned.

 

Because of the dense cover I don't use leaders either.

 

I've fished braided Cotton, Dacron, Micron, Suture Material (Silk), Micro Dyneema®, Kevlar, & Spectra.

 

Cotton, Dacron, & Micron were solid white or speckled. Caught fish on all of em. Suture Material (silk) was black but flat shaped.

 

I've tried all the reds, yellows, oranges or whatever don't really care one way or the other.

 

The difference in stiffness I guess I use 50-65# test not 8-10# test.

I like the 832, but if you give Smackdown a try, that's all you will ever fish.

I'm tapped out too...orders in shipment, but that's the end - I'm out of money and already have the PP I need for my reels.

 

I've never had tip-wrap with 20#PP...I doubt I'll have it with the 50#

I would try that Smackdown but they don't seem to have a HiVis option in their 10 lb spool

I agree. Smackdown is on another level. I'm ruined forever. At least it lasts forever. The new stealth gray toooooo

Seagur just came out with stealth gray and high flash high vis green. Tacklewarehouse has it in 10lb 150yard spools
