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.

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
