Spider Wire Invisible Brand Problems

Recommended Posts

Me and my buddies have experienced major problems with this line.  Im talking about trying the set the hook and line just breaking.  Casting a spinnerbait and there goes your spinnerbait.   We all know how to fish pretty decent and can tie a good knot.  The line is just breaking.  

Has anyone else experienced problems with this line?  It has been awful for me.

Hey Dixon, I am a braid user exclusively unless I have to fish days in clear water. I have had that same problem with two major brands and have gone to Suffix braid exclusively. Have yet to have a problem with it and that's been a couple of years.

Hey Big O, is the other major brand that you're referring to PowerPro?  I saw a post somewhere else where you were discouraging its use.  I haven't had any problems with it so far, but I was just wondering.

What kind of Suffix Big O?  That line is just terrible.  I lost some of your rage lizards because of it plus the freakin hooks.   I am sure Suffix has a tone of different types.  What do you like?

Suffix performance braid..

Also give fireline braid a shot, Someone recommended it on here and I have been using it with no problems yet. Its very round and smooth.

Dixon, what pound test braid are you having breakoffs with? My guess is that you buy the line accordng to the strength rather than the diameter.

15 to 20 lb test.  I just emailed spiderwire.  Cant wait to see if I get a response.  Going to take it off my poles and try Suffix I guess.

Dixon, the diameters of those lines are 6# or less mono. Certainly you would not use 6# mono when fishing spinnerbaits and plastic worms (guessing medium heavy rods). Small diameter braids have very little shock strength. Backlashes when casting spinnerbaits or violent hook sets with Tx rigs will snap those small lines. You should use at least 50# superlines for those applications with baitcasters (12# mono diameter) and back off on the hookset motion and drag setting.

Yup, i have both spooled on two worm rods using them back o back! I like both but Suffix is a little stronger IMO!

I would STAY AWAY from SpiderWire if i where you(SUCKS)! The line size depends a lot on the cover you are fishing! Since braid is so thin in diameter and limp, i would never use anything under 30lb line. For fishing cover like i do here in FL, i use 65lb braid!
