    I like the power pro 50 or 80lbs test at a smaller test size in the red and 300 to 1500 ft. spool, We have tried a few different sizes and types, and thats what we come to like.

    Well it depends on the lakes I use 65lb green and yellow whatever the store has in stock at the time and have changed a few reels this year to 80lb as some rocks don't much care for braid.

    and on the river I use 100lb red as it just looks cool IMO

    all of my braid is Power Pro and normally I buy it in 300 yard spools.

    I would have to say 80 lbs and green (color really don't matter to me) 300 yard spools are about right per reel.

    What color of braid is your first choice?
    It should not make any difference, but I would always go with the darker color (Green)

    What size of braid is your first choice?
    Here in the Ca. Delta - I would say 20lb to 30lb test would be fine, because you get mostly Channels up this way / but in some areas down in southern Ca. you can get some nice Blues & Flats, so I would say 65lb to 80lb test.

    Do you like a 150 yd or 300 yd spool?
    I always go with line capacity, so I would say 300 yards & up.

    I use 100# Power Pro in red. I may consider the high visibility yellow as it is so easy to see. I like the 1500 yard rolls.

    65# power pro. I use green but doesn't matter. 300yd. Academy sports had the 300yd for only $4.00 more than the 150yd spools. $15.00 for 150yd and $19.00 for 300yd.

    I like 100 lb. red power pro in 1500 yard spools, 300 yard minimum. That being said we pulled a 33 lb. blue around a stump in 3 ft. water using the 80 lb. cajun red you gave us to try. The line performed great with no damage to the line. Still testing but really like it so far :cool2:.

    50 lb in alternating colors. Maybe High Vis Yellow/red. The alternating colors would be very visible during the day on reels with no clickers. 300 yards.

    65,80,100, depending on application

    Green

    300,500,1500....basically like bigger spools. I can't do anything with 150yd's, don't like using braid as a top shot. I want it all the way to the bottom of my reel.
