    powerpro is better imo. I have been trying the new suffix braid and it is awesome, but costs more. I mostly don't use braid too much, but for bigguns' I spool up with 50 pound braid. i went bay fishing at the coast this spring with 20 lb suffix braid, and I didn't lose one fish. Casted very far too, was able to reach breaking little tunny blitzing baitfish.

    Never used Fireline. Heard good things about it though. I have been using Spiderwire since it first came out in the mid to late 90's and love it. Stuff's strong as hell. Never heard of it fraying before. How were you using it when that happened.

    Ive never used spider-wire. My buddy had it on his pole and it frayed. He used it on open faced tigershark combo made by shakespeare.

    I've used it on many poles. I've used Fireline from 30lb. to 80lb (I think it was 80). I've used it for stripers, bass, catfish, and used the heaviest stuff for king salmon. It has almost no stretch, and you'd darn sure better know how to tie a knot if you use it. If you don't tie a proper knot, it'll pull out. It's unbelievably sensitive and extremely strong for the diameter of line that it is. When fishing for king salmon, I could literally feel fish brush up against my line when fishing in the rivers. My fishing partner didn't believe me, so I told him I'd set the hook next time I felt one. I set the hook the next time and hooked a salmon right in the tail, made a believer out of him!

    I like it a lot, I just use mono more often now, because of the price and it's easier for me to find around here. The last batch of fireline I bought, I bought off ebay. I bought about a dozen spools of 30-80lb test for around $60. Heckuva deal.

    I love the mono. Use your drag right and you don't need the braids or superlines unless your horsing big fish out of structure.
