Red Power Pro ????

Recommended Posts

I have been using green power pro for 2 years and i love it. I have often wondered what the red was for. I thought it might be good for applications where i use a leader therefore giving me more line visibility which would be good. If you have or do use it have you noticed any differences from green power pro?

Same stuff as the green. About as difficult to see in most applications, and the color wears off about the same or maybe slightly faster. If you want visibility go to yellow  ;D

Being at the top of the light spectrum, red actually is less visible under water. Here is an interesting article:

Red less visible underwater? hmm,,,don't manufacturers like Gamakatsu make red hooks to supposedly attract fish? Seems kind of contradictory.

The whole red hook thing is snake oil IMO.

For PP fans, it's in Cabela's Bargain Cave now, even the red stuff.

If you want to see your line better in all lighting conditions, use yellow.

The color red is one of the first to not appear the same color as light diminishes. At no point does red fishing line disappear unless there is no light (dark). Red line will be visible as another color in black or brown as light is filtered by water depth.

Stating that red line dissappears or is invisible is misleading as well as untrue.

The red color may have some attracting value as long as it is held in shallow enough depths that allow red to remain unfiltered.
