Iv gone off Powerpro be careful theres some snide stuff out there, iv been using Berkley Whiplash 65lb its much smoother and better abrasion resistant.

nothing less than 18lb mono..... think mines berkly
if your into braid nothing better in my opinion than power pro 80lb for chucking big lures
just make sure it is power pro there are some crap copys out there .... ebay

you only get what you pay for.... Sad

Thanks for the replies.
I'm going to buy 300mtrs of power pro 25kg and load up both reels.
I hope this power pro braid is far smoother than the braid I've used in the past.

I used Daiwa sensor mono for years, with no problems, started using whiplash last season for a change, both good.

Braid

Post  gduk on Thu Nov 12, 2015 9:42 pm

Wow, lots of really heavy braid, I must say I am now sold on braid, no stretch, I can actually feel a lure tail vibrate, never had that with mono, all my old fishing books quote 12-15 lb line, things change I guess.
