I just switched from power pro to suffix on my spinning set up (6'6" medium action with PENN Clash II) and I get the worst wind knots every 15 cast or so. Its coming off the reel spool in a knot and I can feel it going through the guides. Anyone have the same problem? I'm about to scrap this stuff.

I run the Yellow 65lb Suffix Braid on a couple of my catfish rigs, typically use them for suspended, but have no problems casting either.

Might be true, but casting a 1/8 jig it was the worst at balling up and throwing line snots I've ever used.

That’s what I’m experiencing. I’m going to switch it over to my baitcaster for plugs. Light lures on spinning and it’s the worst.

I prefer Suffix 832 to Power Pro, but I am using 15# on my spinning reels. The lighter Power Pro seemed to wear faster. Very few issues with wind knots, and I fish mostly plastics with very light jigheads.

I bought a small spool of 15# for a light spinning outfit. That line is stiffer that a stretch of barbed wire fence.

I've actually found the Sufix braid to be pretty good stuff, but I rarely use anything other than a fly rod, so I don't get the use out of it that most do. I generally use Power Pro, but I recently got a batch of 8# that constantly twists up; I don't know why. Never had that issue with the 10# Power Pro. I have started using some 6# J Braid on the rods I use to prospect for crappies and whites; I really like that stuff! It's hard to find good braid testing under 10#.

I've tried it. For me it is better than Power Pro. I have some Kast King braid on a couple of reels and so far it's working fine for me.
