What are the latest and greats fishing lines



I have been a P-Line user for years and tried the fluorocarbons and wasn't too impressed with them. Are there any new ones out that are better? I am the type that sticks with the same brand if it works but I was wondering if something new has came out.

Not sure I would consider it "new", but the 832 Suffix is the best braid I has come across yet, and I've tried most of them. Previos Suffix, Power Pro, Finn's, etc...The 832 has won me some money, I'm not changing.

I use the trilene fluorocarbon on my flipping rods which has been around forever but is dang near bulletproof . Sunline makes many good lines though and so does seagar . I used to swear by Berkley big game on crankbait and spinnerbait rods but got a couple of bad spools that ruined me on it .

braid and flouro have their uses but mono is where its at for me 95% of the time. 8lb on my spinner and 10lb on my baitcasters. have caught 30 in reds on both no problem........i'd rather not have to deal with the braid if i don't have too.

That's all I use for mono.
It's perfect for most applications, only down side is, if you snag and have to pop your line then peel out about 10-20 feet because it is weakened to the point of 2# test.

Im a big power pro fan for plastics, and I use Seaguar Flourocarbon for most everything else. I keep one reel spooled with Trilene big game, too.

Yeh I swapped from the big game to suffix siege 14 pound and I like it but it in comparison to the big game it doesn't have much tensile strength .

Power pro for braid, Seaguar fluro, and BBG for mono are my main ones. I have a couple other spools for certain setups that I still use, Berkly vanish on my shakey head, and Transoptics for shallow presentations.

Power pro is a good braid unless you prefer a more limp braid. I like stren braid because of that. Use big game for most other setups except a couple flouro rigs I have. Use bass pro brand flouro for them. Been very pleased with it.

Never had this problem. I spool my kingfish reels with 20# BBG. I've landed AJs and wahoo pushing the century mark on it and never had a problem. I'd fish the whole tournament with it and clip it directly into downrigger and no issues. Now the fluorocarbon is an entirely different story. I'm a fan of PowerPro.

For most applications, I use Power Pro with a Berkley Vanish leader. It has served me well. For cranking, I either use mono (Trilene XL), or for deep cranking, straight flouro (Seagar).

For spinning set-ups under 12lb, I am really intrigued by Nanofil, but just haven't gotten around to trying it.

I hate vanish. I must have gotten two bad spools in a row, because I tried it again and it still sucked. Broke off very easily.

I only use the Vanish leader material, not the vanish main line. I don't know that it is any different (small spool leader material vs. large spool main line), but I have had good success with it both in 25lb for bass and 40-80lb for saltwater (mangroves up to tuna) applications.

Never had a problem with it on my spinning set ups, one has 8lb, the other has 10lb.

It's terrible. It's every bit as weak as big game.

Is it that much better then Power Pro? I haven't had any real issues with Power Pro, using everything from 20lb on a spinning set-up, to 30lb on my bass casting rods, to 50 or 65lb on offshore spinning set-ups. I'm always interested in improving, so I am all ears.
