Your Favorite Braid???

Recommended Posts

What braid/superline/spectra do you guys recommend for overall performance? Id be using it mostly for punch fishing and frogging. Probably the most important factors would be durability and castability. Thanks

Out of the braids I've tried, Spiderwire, PP and Sufix, Sufix hands down.  I've had line digging issues on all except Sufix, none whatsoever.  I can cast this stuff a country mile.  Having said this, I'm interested in the 16 strand hollow braid PP is coming out with from a knotless braid to leader connection standpoint as well as what I suspect will be great castability.  And I have had much better luck with line manageability with the larger poundages, which for me is 50lbs...30lbs I did not like so much.  Just my .02.

x2. I like how Sufix gets soft like yarn after using it. Powerpro retains that hard/plasticky feel to it the entire time.

Note, I have not used Dodgeguy's favorite braid (Fireline) so my data is limited to only the above 3.

I've had the best success with Power Pro for 40lb test and over, but for the lighter stuff - 30 and down, I really like Suffix!

Fireline braid for me.

i have used fireline spinning and casting and i hated it. It is coated with somthing that makes it feel like mono and castabilty isnt that great but if you like the coated stuff i guess it works.

I use sufix all the way

I have tried Spiderwire stealth, Spiderwire Ultra Cast, Suffix, Fireline Braid, and Power Pro. I use Power Pro, it does everything I need/want a braid to do, is a quality first rate line, and (except  for Stealth) saves me a few $$ over the others.
