    Both the big cat and big game in solar green are very good line.
    Ande also makes a envy green line that works very well. I have used the big cat 40# on all my reels for a long time. I used my last spool of big cat and have been slowly replaceing them with the ande envy green as there needed. It dosnt seem to have as much stretch and comes in 350 yard spools where the big cat was 220 yards. I could only get 1 reel with the big cat and can get 2 with the ande.
    Either way I think you will be happy with what ever one you decide on.
    Good luck out there....

    You are right on picking Berkley Big Game to ask your question about. Chose your line size according to the size of fish you are targeting, and your reel capacity. As for color, depends on night fishing or day. I use solar because I don't see as good as I use to. It also works good at night under a black light.Either will do the job for you.:big_smile:

    i really like cajun red for day fishing, but at night i like to use a high vis line, just to make it easier to see.

    berkley is good line. i like the solar line as well. you can see it very well and catfish could care less if they see it or not. stay away from the red cajun stuff. it has very little abrasion resistence( the most important aspect in a good cat line as far as i am concerned) and a ton of memory. if you want a real good mono line that is better than the berkley lines and less expensive, check out some "tightline". bass pro sells it in the saltwater section. i have been using it for years and it is by far the best i have tried.

    I've reels spooled with Cajun Red, Big Game, and Suffix Elite. I like the Suffix the best, tough line and abrasion resistant. The Cajun Red surprised me. I was prepared not to like it. After 6 months or so, I've found it strong and abrasion resistant, it casts well, and I've had fewer problems with memory than with Big Game. Its cheaper too, by about a buck over Big Game. But, I like Big Game too. My only gripe about Cajun Red is its not easy to see at night, but I watch my rods, not my line at night Besides, if a fish over 3 or 4 lbs hits the line, I usually know, it pulls on my canoe or kayak some. My decision on which line to use is Cajun Red for 20 lb test and under, Suffix for lines over 20 lb.

    I like power pro red. I am going to respool from green to red 100lb on big reels and 50 on bass bait casters! The only draw back is you must use the palamor knot or the uni knot, but other than that I like it! also i AM GOING TO START USING A MONO LEADER FOR SHOCK there just is no stretch in power pro , what ever lb test on the main line I double it for the leader! Makes it durable plus gives a little . :wink: pappy3

    Do you have to use a backing on your reel before you spool up with power pro?

    For mono I have gone to the BPS Offshore Angler Tightline in the solar green color. Bad to the bone and priced right. Since spooling my Tekota with it I have several 20 pound plus fish on it including a nice 39 pounder and I fish in the rocks a lot. Can't beat it!
