PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line
PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line is not affected by saltwater, UV rays, or most chemicals and solvents. The life of PowerPro line is much longer than monofilament lines (as a rule of thumb, it lasts five times the life of monofilament line). In fact, depending on how much and where you fish, PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line could last two to three fishing seasons or longer. With PowerPro, you have more fish in the boat, and less bait lost – you'll find that you're actually money ahead.
PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line is composed of polyethylene, a very slick plastic. In fact, the only material that is slicker than Spectra, is Teflon. Spectra, combined with PowerPro's Enhanced Body Technology, makes a rounder and smoother line, which is gentler on rod guides than the older style braids. PowerPro Braided Spectra Fiber Line has a specific gravity of 0.98 g/cc – just a hair lighter than water. Unlike heavier nylon and Dacron lines that sink, PowerPro will tend to stay at the surface. This means that you'll get faster control of your fish after a strike with less belly in the line.

I got 50lb. 300yd. of this line to spool my surf reels with, this is great line, perfect for surf fishing. This line is tough, it can stand the beach abrasion. I would recomend this line to anyone who wants alot of strong line packed onto their reels.
power pro all the way I had hold off the bottem while fishing the wrecks off New Jersy and I pulled it up great line

Power Pro braided line
by helm -
I started using Power Pro braided line in 2005 and will never go back to mono for the following reasons: It allows for longer, smoother casts It enhances handling on my reel It has superior knot performance It resists burying in the spool It has near zero stretch It has incredible strength - 10X stronger than steel There is no reel memory....I never have to respool due to the line coming off the reel like a slinky Won't cut guides
Best fishing line I have ever used!
by Ray -
This is the best line I have ever used! I put a spool of this stuff on both my wife and my new Shimano Syncopate 4000 reels and new Ugly Stik GX2 rods for a trip of saltwater fishing in Galveston, TX Thanksgiving week. It casts so easily. It was a windy day November 29, 2013 and we had to change from 1 oz to 2 oz weights in order to get our live shrimp out to the fish. It was easy to keep the line tight and tangle free. The fishing was so fast and furious that we caught 24 black drums and sheepheads within 2 1/2 hours on live shrimp. We could feel every bite no matter how windy or how light the fish were biting. Using the swivels I also purchased from FishUSA.com also made it quick to make the needed changes for the conditions. We only lost 1 fish the entire trip and that was because all three poles got hit at once on a couple of occasions and the hook did not set on the reel I was still using mono fishing line on. We released all but 5 black drum which we kept to fillet. Once you go Power Pro there is no turning back. I will never go back to mono again. Well worth the money.
Death on Large Brrok Trout
by nipigonfisher -
Tested this out in the clear waters on Lake Nipigon for trophy brook trout on reefs. It is hands down the best line I have ever used. Line allowed me to cast to the reefs from long distance and not spook the trout.
by Mudbug -
I really am impressed with this line. It spools onto the reel very easily and casts like silk. Very sensitive and no stretch, so hook sets are short and quick. Small diameter means you can use very light tackle and still load the spool with enough yardage.
Best braid out there.
by Kirk -
Problem free and attaches to other lines and terminal uses with great knot strength. It doesn't "breakdown" like other braids do after a while and it lasts longer. Most charts for depth control are based upon the properties this line has. I have never had trouble with it digging into itself.
by Craig -
Casts great. Tough enough for river fishing.
Best line ever
by nipigon fisher -
This line has replaced all my Fireline that I once believed could never get any better. I now use it for every type of fishing that I do. It works better than anything I have seen in over 40 years of intensive fishing
Cannot be beat
by nipigon fisher -
I have 4 different tests of this line and they are all great--don't wait just buy it and you will be convinced.
One major gripe
by Hallmark -
There is either a problem with the braid/mono conversion numbers or the line capacity on spools i have filled from various reel manufactures is incorrect. Example: my power pro purchase of 30 pound braid says on the box. 8 lb mono equivalent diameter.. so if i have a reel spool that says capacity 8lb/160, shouldn't a 150 yard spool of power pro fit on that spool almost perfect.. well surprise.. thst spool holds only about 90 yards. Now i have a 60 yard useless remnant and way less line on my reel than i really wanted. Had the same experience with 10 lb power pro braid saying something like 6 lb mono equivalent. Spool saying 140 yard 6 lb capacity yet holding only 75 yards of the power pro. Are the reel manufacturers out in left field here or is someone exagerating the true mono equivalent diameter of their line. It's very irritating to have such a large percentage of line purchased being in useless remnants and far less line on my spools than i bought the line for in the
Misleading rated thickness
by Vlado_t -
To anyone considering this line, read carefully. I have Sufix 832 with stated thickness of 0.11"/0.22 mm that is rated at 30lb test and "8lb mono equivalent". I wanted something thinner so I figured I'll try the Power Pro 20 lb test that is supposed to be 6lb mono equivalent. Power Pro does not state the actual thickness on the box. Well, I got the product and I immediately noticed that this line is much thicker than my 30lb test Suffix. Side to side comparison confirmed my fears. I would say, it's at least 50% thicker! To make sure that I did not get a 30lb or 50lb test in a 20lb test packet, I went to a local store that carries Power Pro and examined another 20lb test PP box. Same thing. It turns out that this US made line is measured with Chinese made calipers at the the factory. Luckily, I did not buy the $130 bulk. Had similar experience with the cheap Chinese Kast King SS.
Excellent for inland saltwater

A terrific product, thin and strong, that floats.
by Leo -
Good but fades real easy
Thinnest I found
by Fatman -
This is thin line compared to others of the same test, and seems to be as strong. I do see that it gets lighter in color as you fish day after day. I have also seen it start to fray with use. But all braid seems to. I take 10 to 20 feet off all the time. No knot problems.
Fine and refined

Casts like a dream
by Gart -
Great line -- very thin for the 30lb test, so it doesn't get much belly at all between the rod and canon ball when I'm trolling. I highly recommend it.
by JohnnyG -
angler needs to pay more attention to rod and reel specifics than with mono. Once you learn what works with braid then it is a far better line than mono IMO....casting distance is significantly improved. Sensitivity to bites is incredible. Spool will hold quite a bit more line than with mono, I fish inshore a lot around the space center in eastern central Florida and only respool yearly. I fish about 150-200 days per year (I'm retired). I'v caught many 30+ pound redish on a 260 penn slammer reel spooled with 15# powerpro with no problems. (great fun on light tackle)
One of the best braids
