    I'd say the G/F is a keeper. Wouldn't catch and release on that one.

    gorilla braid is some awsome stuff, it is a bit softer feeling braid, I use it on half my reels and power pro on the other half, I can't decide which I like more!
    I would have to say that my gorilla 50lb is harder to break than my 65lb power pro and does better fishing around rocks and other sharp edges
