    I have used it on the Ohio River. I liked it better than Spiderwire or PowerPro. It's thicker but seems to be less resistant to cutting on the rocks.

    Do you still use it or have you switched to something else? I'm thinking about trying it, because it doesn't float. Most other braids do. I like the fact that the stretch is near zero, but not the floating part.

    I started using Vicious braid around August of this year. I actually like the "floating" quality sometimes. The Vicious has been great so far, but I have not fished it in rocky conditions yet.

    here is some info on this line

    Berkley Gorilla Tough super braid fishing line. Compared to monofilament, new Berkley Gorilla Tough braid offers twice the strength at half the diameter - with virtually no stretch. This long-lasting, sinking braid is easy on your rod guides and reels. A tremendous value compared to other braids in its class!

    Terminal Tackle Company has the 1000yd spool of 100lb XDS for $107. I've seen on a couple of other websites in the discontinued sections.....

    I have used both pp and gorilla braid I have to lean toward the pp.The gorilla braid seemed to break off alot easier and not as durable as the pp.
