*** has the 150-yard spools of 20, 30, and 40 lb. test in stock but not listed on their website yet and you have to call them to order. they hope to have the rest of the spools in stock within the next two weeks.

Please tell me they are going to make it in something smaller than 20???

Yeah, I was just checking that out. I will still try it but why can't any other brand get the strength to diameter ratio that powerpro can?

If I remember correctly, Shimano has a patent on PP lines so that others can't copy their line size, components or manufacturing process.

Dr. Watson, I think you have the patent information incorrect. Refer to this article:

I tried to view your link, but when I got to the site it says the topic doesn't exist. However, here is a link to power pro's company information, don't know if it will help at all.

sorry if I'm kinda highjacking your thread Philsoreel

why would they?powerpro is outdated and there are far better lines being made.

It probably comes down to the fact that Pure Fishing now owns Spiderwire which was the first small diameter superline after their now owned Stren brand that was the first superline with the Kevlar fishing line.

The use of the superfibers for fishing line in the braided form may be the suit subject. All of those fibers were developed for the bullet proof clothing industry. Kelvar, Spectra, and Dyneema

Firelne is the Dyneema fiber and Pure Fishing owns that too.

I just don't see it. Yeah, Samurai and Toray Bawo are better but they are also extremely expensive and in a different class. That's like comparing Vicious Fluorocarbon to Shooter or Tatsu....there is no comparison. I'm very hard to please when it comes to line but PP has never given me any problems. Not going to get into a my brand is better than your's debate with anyone so no need to rebuke. I've tried several others and didn't like them.

Dodgeguy is just stating his lopsided opinion. I'm surprised you didn't get his famous picture of the line that he uses.

IMO, unless you just feel like being different, it's tough to beat Sufix Performance braid.

i love sufix performance braid but it loses its color rather quickly...the new 832 is supposed to have much better color retention too.

the only thing is, I want a little bit of stretch to compensate for some of my aggressive casts, I have heard that due to the no stretch of most braids violent casts can make the line snap, because they have no shock absorption.

fireline braid does not break on casts only cheap braid or braid that is worn will snap on a cast.
