I've never used this braid before and have always used PowerPro. And for some reason, anytime I see something 75% off it makes me skeptical of the product. Any feedback on this braid?

Most of the reviews I see on it says it isn't as strong as it is rated. hmmm

I have some and it works well. Been spooled on all year and no real "cons". I've had some breakages but think its my knots not the line as its happened across a broad range of lines. It tends to dig in some as its really thin but seems like you get so much more on a spool even with a backer that its worth it. Haven't ever seen the color change/fade on it.

I haven't checked the thread lately.

I'm guessing I'll be contacting my credit card company soon then?

This has been my concern with all of these new thinner/slicker braided lines. Sure they are quiet and cast further but they also tend to really dig in on a hard hook set. Think I will just stick with what has worked for so long despite the noise.

Strongest braid for me is sufix 832. I've tried power pro slick 8 and it had horrible abrasion resistance for my applications. Ive been using daiwa samurai braid with good results. The 50lb is size of 10lb.

Always liked the Suffix 832 stuff! Didn't like the price as much though. Nice round line that did exactly what it was supposed too. Power Pro is good stuff but tends to dig really bad on a hookset. They make the yellow colored line though and wow it sure works for flipping(just sharpie the last few feet).

I bought 3 spools of Kanzen during this flash sale. Figured I’ve wasted $15 on dumber things.
