    i was wondering if anyone here thought fireline was worth the price, its obviously expensive, but much thinner than mono... but people told me that there was a different way to set the hook with flurocarbon lines then mono lines... well i just wanted yalls opinion on if its worth the price or not!

    I always use power pro when going with anything other than mono, it is just a good line and I have never had problem with it.

    i have a couple of reels with fireline on them that has been on them for years literrally and i don't see any reason yet to change it , it faded from smoke gray to nearly white but no signs of any other physical changes , the only reason i stopped buying fire line was to try power pro which also has been trouble free , so i cant compare the too since niether has given me any trouble to mention that was'nt cuased by operator error .

    I don't like Fireline, but I think it's more because I used it wrong when I first used it. I was using closed-face reels back then and it would dig in and catch horribly. Also have to watch your knots (same as any braided) as a lot of knots won't hold in braided since it's "slicker" than mono. If you do switch, learn how to tie a palomar if you don't know already. That said, I switched to PowerPro and I love it. It's all I have on my reels now.
