I use Power Pro bought from ebay. A bloke called "fishing tackle online" has it about half retail price in all colours, strengths and spool sizes and usually get it in a couple of days. I pay about 20 for 300yds. Ebay US has it even cheaper but youve got to wait to get it shipped.

Only used power pro so couldnt comment on other brands.

penn's good but i actually prefer fireline.... like all berkeley lines it breaks at alot higher strain than is stated on the spool AND it behaves alot more like mono on the spool than conventional braids too!!!

I've just got some power pro Kell if you want to have a look at it give me a shout Wink Wink

I've not caught anything on it yet but im really impressed with it for casting its very smooth and seem to cast better than mono !!

I also got mine off ebay for 22.88 plus 1.99 postage
For 300 meters 50 LB

Another vote for Power pro...just one question. What's it going to be used for? Lures or bait fishing?
