Sufix Braid

9 posts in this topic

I know most of us Catter's prefer PP. I personal love PP as well. But some other folks I know, "bass/muskie" fisherman have been ranting bout Sufix braid. They say it had better abrasion resistance then PP. So I figure it can't hurt to try a spool.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried using it and what are your thoughts on it?

I've been wanting to try it, but when you got something (PP)that is working well... why change?

I know Larry Dahlberg (Hunt for Big Fish) uses Sufix and with the fish he catches, he wouldn't use something he didn't trust.

I say give it a shot, let us know how it works out.

That's what has been holding me back for a while now. But since so many others has tried and liked it, I figure I could give it a shot. Even though they are only using it for roughfish. LOL!

It resists line digging, resists fray/fluffing, and doesn't bleed like any of the other stuff, a very consistent line, plus isn't super expensive like some premium braid line. Makes it very good value.

Thanks for the info. How does it hold up against abrasion?

Better than power pro for abrasion. Actually better than PP all around. You won't buy anymore PP once you use sufix

Thanks,,, I like the sounds of that. I've got a spool of #65 HiViz on the way.

I think PP might have been a victim of their own success. The demand was high and the quality may have dropped.

I’ve heard others who’ve had it break “for no reason”, but I have yet to have this happen nor seen it happen to anyone else.

I have had it break when fishing near rocks or sharp objects as part of the underwater structure. That’s just part of the game, much like fishing near snags, you will get hung up and have to break off.

I guess I would like to see an unbiased abrasion test of the leading braid manufacturers before I could conclude that one was better than the other.

Much like the gear and tactics we use, I say use whatever you feel confident and comfortable with.

Says it all. We use #65. You run the lines through your fingers and the tightness of the braiding on Suffix makes PP feel line a homemaid braided rope.

    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
