Your Braid Of Choice?

Recommended Posts

I have to pick power pro. Just casts better, stays strong, and tangles less than all the others I have tried.

PP......... priced right, available almost anywhere, doesn't fail me.  I've used others,but always come back to PP.

fireline braid blows away powerpro.powerpro is an outdated 4 strand braid as i have proved in earlier disscussions.it is rougher and noisier than 6 and 8 strand braids.diawa samurai braid is also very good but i prefer the fireline braid because it has more body.

Suffix gets my vote. Smoother than pp & doesn't dig-in on itself.

I've had the Samuri on now for about 3 months..I've used mainly for heavier swimbaits, but have used it for pitchen, and flippen jigs, and other lures. I have used it with a lure tied directly on, and have used leaders from 10 to 20lb test.

I went with the 55lb green Samuri, I would have prefered yellow, but they were out.

This braid is very limp right out of the box, needs No brake in, it does fade, as do most braids, the color doesn't make a mess..A bit spendy compared to other brands, but worth it imho.

The only othere braid I tried was Spiderwire Ultra Cast..which was waxey, and the color made my thumb green..lol

I have recently been trying out new braids.  I first used Power Pro, and as of now that is my favorite.   I have suffix tied on one of my rods, and I am disappointed in its performance.  I seems to be a stiffer braid and cause a lot more problems when casting.  I will be trying fireline after this to compare it to the others.;

both sufix and fireline braid will soften with use.powerpro also softens with use as the wax wears off.that extra body is what cuts down on wind knots.if soft is what you want than the diawa braid is the best.

I can't believe Spiderwire isn't getting more votes! I love the Invisi-Braid and the Camo Braid. I've been using it for about 2 years now and haven't had any issues with it yet.

Haven't tried them all, but I've tried a bunch. For my smallmouth spinning rod setups, 20/6 Suffix always ends up back on the reels. ;)

With a little use it becomes nice and soft and extremely limp, and yet remains very strong, abrasion resistant, and holds a knot exceptionally well.

The only thing I don't like about it is the noise in makes in the guides... but I can live with that given all the other positive attributes.

PP is my personal favorite. I am not going to go and spend $$$ just to see if I can find one that works better. I found PP, it works better than ones I have tried in the past (Spiderwire, Fireline, Tuffline), so I am sticking with it. Maybe there are better lines out there, but PP is competitively priced, available everywhere, and works for me.

But heck, I'm old school....been using Big Game for 15 years and never found a reason to find a different mono.

I just started using the Spiderwire Stealth this year on my spinning rods and so far it has performed great.  The only problem I have with it is that I CAN'T SEE IT ;) .  Fishing wacky style with a co-poly leader I can't see the line move/jump or whatever.  Next time I'll be going with something in hi-viz.

Try Camo Braid, it has hi and low vis sections. It really adds a level of depth perception when you have hi and low vis sections.
