    I normally get 2-3 years out of the line I just reel the line each year back on an empty reel then the fresh line is at the front an go from there.

    It lasted me exactly one fishing trip, after that I took the crap of and threw it away.:sad2: Just my opinion, take it for what its worth.

    It will last a extremely long time. I've never had to change it because of wear only from break-offs shortening it. I've had some on for over two years of non-stop fishing.

    no answer for that though. it COULD last a cpl/few yrs or go fish a weir or other rocky area and it COULD only last the night.

    I think it will last several years.

    Maybe the rocks aren't as sharp on the west end of the Kaw, but I can only think of breaking the 65 or 80# once in two years:crazy:

    I am using bank or mainly no-roll sinkers, with 30 pound mono on the leader......it is hard enough to break.

    Just started using Powerpro earlier this year, satisfied so far. I have 65# on my long poles 12 & 10', casting distance is great, no breakoffs so far. I have my 3 8' rods lined with the 40#(hi-vis yellow), little bit of fading on them, no problems with fraying though.
    Just received and lined 3 of my shore poles with the yellow tug of war from Team Catfish today, put the 50# on them. Soon as I use them awhile I'll make a report.

    I have used mine for several years so far and no problem with it other than the color fading. I also have not had the problems with the break offs due to rocks either. Maybe it is less common in the heavy lines, I use 80lb and 150lb on my poles. I think you will like the line.


    Jim I can't wait to hear your comparison of 2 lines.
