Ugly Braid

Postby fowlhunter » Tue Jun 05, 2007 12:34 pm

Have any of you guys tried this line. My cousin tried some 20 lb and it is complete crap. The line kept busting over little stuff. He hooked a fish and the line broke and then he barely snagged the weeds on the edge of the river and it busted again. This line hadn't been on the reel for over a week. Was this a bad roll or is it just crap line?

Whoa.. I'm glad I'm not the only person who experienced this. At first, I thought it might have been my knots that were creating the problem (which i highly doubted). But then when it was breaking right at my pole, I knew it was crap. Seemed really brittle.

If you guys are looking for a good "super line", then try power pro. It comes in Moss Green, Yellow, and now Red. Its super thin and tough. I use it for salmon fishing on the great lakes, veritcle jigging walleyes, and for some of my ice fishing applications. The feel you have is unbelievable. Its a great line.

Second on the list would be fireline. I used to use fireline allot when i bass fished in heavy cover. I never had any problems with it, other than it fraying up a bit. Even when it did that it was still really tough line.

Thanks for the info. I guess they didn't put much testing into this line before they threw it on the shelf.

A-Bomb I will have to give that line a try. thanks :thumbsup:

The braided line never worked for me I only use stren now. I had the braided stuff and it would rot after being wet and then dry and wet and so on I didn't like it.
