    I dont use power pro, I use daiwa saltiga which is a better braid than powerpro. I put it on shimano baitrunners in the 4500B and 6500B size. These reels have been loaded with this 120# braid for almost two years and I havent had a single problem. The baitrunner feature is strong enough to use no matter what current you are in, can be set very light or very hard. You wont get a better spinning reel for the money PERIOD!! I have about ten yards of mono on the bottom of the spool to prevent slipage with a double uni tying them together.

    I like braided superline on spinning reels, but I don't buy a reel to suit the line; I buy a reel because it has the size, ruggedness, and so forth that I want in a reel. The only difference between braided and mono in choosing a reel is that a reel might not hold enough mono, or couldn't cast heavy test mono, whereas the same reel will hold much more braided line, and it will cast much better.

    I think you will like the Shimano 6500 baitrunner. Its about $109 dollars new

    I would match the line to the reel,not reel to line. But I always use pp 65 on spinning reels.
