Power Pro Braided Line

Having only started fishing seriously in 2009 I spooled my first reels with Power Pro Spectra braided line. I have some reels today that have the original line that I spooled on my those very reels. Other than a little bit of faded color they are still as strong as the day I put them on.

Becoming an all species angler during the past five years I have still used Power Pro Braid for 90% of my applications. From 10 pound up to 80 for my Muskie reels they have all been very durable and dependable. I have even replaced the steel line on my Scotty Downrigger with 65 pound Power Pro. It reduces the cuts through the water nicely.

Tying Floro leaders to the line with Uni knots has not been difficult and I can't think of an incident of my knot letting go while fighting a fish.

When the Fishing Gets Tough Get PowerPro

I have been using these lines for years. Many others are also using it. When PowerPro Braided line came out Braided lines were new. Many lines had spooling and tangle issues or were not abrasion resistant. When I started using braided lines I tried many brands and ended up going to and staying with PowerPro. PowerPro got it right from the start.

I fish fresh and salt water but mostly salt. I like to fish structure and that means sharp oyster, barnacles and teeth. I find that Powerpro resists cuts better than even some of the coated lines on the market. All lines abrade and this line is no different. Its not impervious but highly resistant. I find that shark and bluefish can cut it but it is pretty resistant to other fish.

One thing I really like about the line is how well it spools up and casts. It doesn't seem to be as prone to wind and slack knots as other braided lines. The knots are good and don't slip as long as you tie a good knot and pay attention to snugging it up. I have fished weights from 8 - 100 pounds with good luck and minimal issues.

I recommend PowerPro.
