Fireline Braid = Great Stuff

Recommended Posts

I just spooled one of my jig rods with 50lb Fireline Braid and it is night and day difference from Power Pro.  It casts like a dream!  Thanks everyone for the recommendation.  I still have Power Pro on my flipping stick so I probably wont' change it since I haven't had any issues with it for that purpose.  However Power Pro will never see another one of my reels that actually requires casting.  Fireline braid = great stuff   :)

i might have to give it a try when i need some new line...... (that wont be for quite a while though)

until then, my suffix braid has given me no breakoffs, good casting, and definetly no complaints......

i love the stuff!!

I got a spool of the 15/4 for one of my smallmouth rods. Used it on two outings so far, and it seems to working nicely.

I'd try it, but I just wish they'd give you a "normal amount" on a spool instead of the 110 yds they currently have.

I really like the Fireline braid much better then Power Pro.  Just don't like the way it turns my thumb green.lol

Later, :)

Chris at Tech, put 55 yards of it on two reels, or 55 yd on one reel and have 55 yds of spare. You will never cast or have a bass pull off that much line. Use mono backing to get the braid to fill the spool properly. Then you will have two rigs with line that will last for years. Braids that are packaged with 150 yards can be used on three reels with 50 yds on each. Still plenty for bass fishing. I have some 300 yards spools of braid- guess what------6 reels or 1 reel and 5 replacements.

Another advantage of superline is when the line fades or looks worn, reverse it on the reel spool so it will last twice as long.

I have 20# on one of my spinning reels and it does cast great and the guys at Cabelas put the mono backing on and spooled it up.

Didn't think of spiitting it onto 2 spools with 55yds each plus the mono but now I will remember to have it done next time.

maybe i got a bad spool i just switched back to power pro from fire line the power pro casts better to me. ive had more wind knots with fireline than any braid the fire line dug just as much as any other line even after a small 1 pound fish the line would dig and try to back cast

I hate the wind  knots.  I switched back to Mono on my Frog rod because of them.  After fishing with mono again a few times looks like I am going to have to live with the wind knots.  Hook set just isn't the same when the casts get long.

I will say, with my frog rod I can cast the SPRO Jr. Frogs far without much problem with Power Pro.  However with my swim jig rod, the Fireline has served me much better.  I'm sure part of it has to do with your setup and what your casting.
