STREN SUPER BRAID - good or bad?

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone use this? is it good or bad? saw it on sale at a local store for $6.99, was going to pick one up, but not sure why it would be on sale like that. I'm not that satisfied with my power pro i'm using.

Thanks

I tried one of Stren braids last year Micro Braid or something like that. Worked good for most of the year. Went to use it this spring it was junk all fraided and weak.

I really like the mono but dont think I will try the braided again.

I actually prefer the Stren monofilament over Trilene monofilament even though both are affiliated to Berkley

You would think it would be good being affiliated to Berkley and Spider wire.

I've used Stren Superbraid a lot and like it. It's very similar to Power Pro, maybe a bit softer.

I have used it this year and have had no issues. It cast well and is very smooth. No complaints here.

I have been using it this year, I got a killer deal on 1200 yards of 80#, it's so cheap because Stren discontinued the Super Braid.

For 6.99 buy you'll be happy you did.

Yep, it's on clearance because Stren discontinued it and has since replaced it with Sonic Braid. It was my favorite braid and I still have 4 rods spooled up with it.

thanks guys i'll be sure to pick one or two up! One more question, is there a shelf life on braid lines (i.e. if i buy it this year and not use it, would it be as good as new next year?)... also the deal is at joe's in st. paul/maplewood if anyone is close and needs a new line. its in one of the isles on the bottom by some lures(it is not hanging up with the other lines).

This is my second year with it and I also stocked up on a bunch at this clearance sale price as well. Have it on multiple rods, both spinning and casting, and has worked great on all of them.
