Problem using shimano citica and powerpro 30lbs braid

Recommended Posts

I just picked up this new reel and new line... and i have been losing alot of spinner baits for some reason... i thought this line was supposed to be fail proof. Any help?

You haven't heard, PowerPro dislikes being on Shimano reels, LOL! J/K, what knot are you using on the spinners? Or is it breaking somewhere else?

I have been using 20 and 40lb PP on 2 Citicas for over a year and still haven't broken any line. I use Palomar knots and double loop the arm on the spinner bait before tightening it down. If you do this and still break line call PP and complain.
