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 agree with the softness of it. Performs well for me.

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.

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
