    wont go fishing for the big ones without my suffix

    i use 65 lb. suffix braided and love it...

    the suffix braided has sort of a polymer coating on it which makes it sorta of feel like mono

    it casts like a rocket...superior knot holding power and if i get hung up it never breaks at the braided line....

    i do use a 50 mono. leader with my c-rigs...and thats the weak point of my rigs...that way I keep my barrel swivel and no roll weight...

    hope this helps....:big_smile:

    Just bought some Suffix Siege about 2 weeks ago. So far it seems to be pretty good to early to tell for sure. Mine was 14lb test smoked color sorta of a real light gray color. I usually stick with what I know when it comes to line but decided to give it a try. Initially impressed but only time will tell havent landed anything big or havent had long enough to see how it holds up to the elements. :wink:

    We had Suffix Fishing Line as a sponsor on the BOC for roughly a year, approx 3 years ago.

    In that year we gave away 2-3 crates of line and leader, of all types and sizes.

    I would guess on memory alone, I only received 2 negative complaints about the line, "It revolved around line memory".

    The company actually used the same technology from their tennis racket division when starting out, and adopted it.

    The line is very popular with Salt water fishermen, and has been growing in catfishing circles ever since.

    The biggest benefits I get feedback on is their leader.

    I use 30# Suffix on my spinning reels when catfishing. It is thin and casts well. I have not had a problem with memory.

    Ive used the Sufix Tritanium Plus 25lb mono, less memory than the other Sufix lines and just as strong.

    Bought a bulk spool of Sufix past winter and spooled one reel with it and after using it for two trips found no problems with it.

    In the latest edition of SPORT FISHING magazine is the most comprehensive test of fishing lines and knots I have ever read.They tested mono and braids.ALL lines were 20lb test and the straight line pull ACTUAL breaking strenght is very interesting particualrly comparing braids to mono.Very informative article and I have cut it out and keep it for future reference.Good knot breaking test also.WOrth the cost of the magazine.:smile2:

    I got a pack of the 80# leader material from DH last year and I love the stuff. I'm going to be bummed when I finally run out. Since using that stuff, I've looked for Suffix mono in 30# and can't find it anywhere.

    I like Suffix Elite in 17 lb. for my lake/pond channel cat rigs. (Abu 6500's and UglyStick Catfish rods) I like it better than the Berkley Big Game line I was using for a couple years. Big Game is not a bad line by any means. The Suffix seems thinner for it's test and it seems to handle a bit better with very little memory. It casts and knots very well. It seems likea very tough line around the rocks and stumps too. It's good line for the $$.

    Hey Greg, I've used the 80# suffix braid on my jug lines and it has held up very well. Definitely worth giving it a try!!!:cool2:
