    :0a21:I found some Gorilla Braid on clearance for a couple of bucks today and I bought 2 spools of 50lb test. I wanted to know if anyone has used it before. How did it perform? Thanks in advance for any info. :0a23::0a1:

    I have had good luck with it. Never used it in that pound test though.
    I used it for years on my flipping rods. Then it got hard to find so I started using fireline.

    I found some on clearance also so I bought a spool of 35# test to try. I haven't had a problem with it yet and overall it seems to be a pretty good line. I guess time will tell.

    I have used both gorilla braid and power pro to see if there was a difference in the two. The power pro is a much better braid.

    Gorilla is more like the braid of old. Its not a super line. Line capacity is less with Gorilla than with other braids.

    I have some and it works OK. It is a lot thicker in diameter than the super braids like Spiderwire.

    I think it gets better after a few trips, never had any problems with it, got some as a gift years back work ok for the season. Use spiderwire on most everything nowadays just because we found it on sale one day for $5 a 330 yrd. spool so we bought just about every one they had on the rack, don't care to much for the yellow stuff tho, it's kinda thick but for the price can't complain, right.
