Favorite Braided Line
It has been a couple of years since I bought a spool of braided line and things have probably changed substantially during this time. From reading information on the Internet, there are a good number of high quality lines to choose from, including lines that have been woven so they are round, which is better in several regards. Also, some are high visibility, which permits line watching, but not visible to the fish if a fluoro leader is used (a common practice).
I need a spool of 15# for a spinning rod, and am asking which brand and kind you guys on the Austin Bass Forum would recommend? Although there are a number of quality braids on the market, I'm guessing that some of them casts better than others due to coatings, etc. All replies will be appreciated.

I exclusively use 15# PowerPro Super 8 Slick in hi-viz yellow. The last few times I've been at Cabelas, it's been in stock.

I am still a fan of the original Power Pro, though I do like Suffix 832 quite a bit.

I use the Suffix 832 also. Doesn't seem to shed it coating all over the place. Still loses it but it isn't annoying.

Yeah... PowerPro Super Slick. I've got 20lb, 30lb and 65lb on 3 different rods right now and love it. Can't go wrong with that stuff.The fact that there a Highway to Hell and only a Stairway to Heaven says a lot about expected traffic numbers...

For 15lb on spinning gear, Power Pro Super Slick 8 is best. I've honestly never had a failure with Power Pro.International Ambassadour of the Royal Order of Lightning Wolves

I thought power pro was the best line ever until I tried suffix. Suffix line is better in my opinion.

I don't understand everyone's obsession with Power Pro. I don't like how stiff that stuff is. I've never had a failure with it per say, but it all just comes down to personal preference. The P-Line XTCB-8 braid feels better and handles better on a spinning reel, in my opinion. P-Line is one of my sponsors, yes, but they're one of my sponsors because I actually l believe in and like their products.

For a spinning reel, I would go with FINS Windtamer.PB 10lbs 3oz

I can tell you what NOT to get. I bought some Piscifun 12 lb braided as an experiment because it got some good reviews on Amazon and it was absolute crap. I could go into all the reasons why but it is just going to bum me out. Dont waste your time. I still have the spool and Im afraid to even use it for bluegill.
