Sufix 832 Lead Core Line
Sufix 832 Lead Core Line is the first lead core line to combine both Dyneema and GORE performance fibers. When compared to other lead core lines, Sufix 832 Lead Core Line dives 30 percent deeper and is a whopping 70 percent stronger and infinitely more sensitive. This line features ten (100 yd.) or 20 (200 yd.) color coded sections to provide anglers with accurate depth measurement and three times the abrasion resistance to prevent wearing down of the line.

Great lead core to add some depth to your spread
This is a good strong lead core line. All lead cores fray and tangle if you do not use them correctly. I have had no problems with this line and have used it for four years now. This lead core does sink faster allowing you to cover more different depths. I have a setup of this in 2,3,4,5,7,10 color lengths and the same setups with standard lead core so there are just slight difference in depth which sometimes make all the difference
Good lne:runs deep and has great sesitivity.

I've put about 70-80 hours trolling time on a spool of 18 lb 832 lead core and it is holding up well. I fish for lake trout in ways and places that are hard on line: banging spoons on the bottom or trolling with floating bait rigs with the line rubbing bottom. The line gets dragged across rock shoals and sunken trees and there is no noticeable abrasion wear. The line is sensitive enough to feel snags before the lure gets stuck and to feel action changes from weeds or debris out a couple more "colors" out than with my nylon-sheath lead core. Double uni-knots work for leaders and the knot passes through the guides easily. With the lead core stripped out you can use any knot OK for braided line. The biggest problem with the line is the wire core is too brittle. I've had to dig chunks of broken wire out of the line in a few places. They don't affect line strength but do catch on the guides and level wind. It is a good line but a softer pure lead core would be an improvement.
pretty good lead core line

I've had this (12 pound) on a level wind reel for three years and fished it for 50+ hours. It performs well, taking a spoon down 20+ feet with 3-4 colours out and 30+ feet with 5-6 colours out at c.2mph - definitely dives deeper than the 'performance' variety. I am pretty sure the '12 pond test' rating is off as it appears much stronger and is difficult to break when snagged on bottom (1x). It is pretty low stretch, so you can feel your lure's action. The colours have remained bright with no fading during use. I have noticed cracking in the lead core in the last 6-10 feet of line up from the leader, as mentioned in some other reviews. Whether this affects the strength or performance of the line I am not sure, but it looks awful. I've been cutting 6' sections off the end of the line to remove the cracked portions, which is OK for me because I am not putting that much line out for my 20-30 foot trolling depths. So I would say this is a pretty good but not perfect product.
Sufix 832 lead core line Usage
I have been using lead core line for about 20 years fishing lakes in Tasmania which are up to 45 ft in depth.
<br>Up until about 4 years ago I used 18 lb Cortland leadcore which I found to be very good.
<br>After watching Youtube and reading reviews which advised it goes up to 30% deeper I purchased several spools of Sufix 832 Advanced lead core line and have used that for the last 4 years with 10 colours on Okuma 303 level wind, line counter trolling reels.
<br>I Troll with 2 rods out one side of the boat and my fishing mate has 2 rods with Cortland Kerplunk (18 is test) out the other side.(no longer available) We both troll with winged lures and I am able to testify that Sufix 832 lead core line drops less than 6 ft per colour and only a fraction more than other lead core lines.
<br>Certainly not 8 ft per colour and up to 30% more as advertised.
<br>We have also both caught the same amount of fish each on both leadcore brands.
