    I use cajun Red in the 20, 25 , & 30 pound test. Works very well for me.

    I know this isn't what you want to hear but, if you are fishing areas where abrasion is a concern then 50lb. superline is not a good choice to begin with. 80lb. or even 100lb will still work just as well with most set-ups and provide better protection against abrasion and break-offs. And it is part of the reason the super-line manufacturers caution people to select these lines by diameter not lb. strength. Having said that, I believe Cortland Masterbraid is one of the most abrasion resistant braided lines available and altogether it is the best superline available for catfishing. Just my .02

    FINS makes a superline called Deep Drop that is the most resistant but again go up in lb test as abrasion resistance is a function of diameter.You can get Deep Drop from the Cabelas Saltwater catalog.:smile2:

    80 lb Power Pro as a main line and 80 lb mono leader is tough as nails and is a stump puller! Pack a stick in the boat to use for pulling the line if you get hung.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I think I will try some 80# Power Pro.

    I have found that even the best of braid lines don't do so well in high abrasion areas and is why I use a heavy trotline as my leader, sold by the spool. Stands up to abrasion great, and have yet to loose tackle, been using it this way for a couple of years.

    I have really had good luck with Cortland Spectron. Sufix Performance Braid is really good also. The Sufix braid is woven tighter than any other braid on the market.
