Love this line and now hae a new reel that needs spooled. Ive used the green, yellow, and my favorite...red. I see there is now a white. Should I go with the red again or the white? Which will mask the most under water?

I agree....awesome line. I spooled up with Spider wire this year and already stripped most of them to replace with this.

Color?

depends.

I think white works better for top water, just to match the sky. While Red would work better in coffee stain and bottom techniques. That leaves green for the veggies and slop fishing.

Most of the line I use is low vis green in both mono and power-pro type lines, or flouro for clear water.

White, Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, all have there place.

The original color is the most low vis in the widest range of conditions. I like the Red too, like it better as it fades to pink.

I have been using Power Pro for many years now on the ice and on the soft water, from 5# up to 200# test...love it all.

You can dye it any color you wish, it excepts color well.

O2fish: It is going to depend. one of the recent findings scientists have made is that certain species of fish are color blind to certain colors. Walleyes have a real hard time seeing red. Pike cannot see blue for some odd reason.

In dark stained water greenis better. In crystal clear water I suspect white might be a good choice. So it is going to dpend on the type of fish you are after, the type of lake clarity, the time of day and the time of the year. is it a clear summer day or is it a cold wintery wind swept november afternoon? One of the in fisherman magazines did an article on these new colored lines a few months back. You might look around and see if you can find it. It was quite interesting. However the concensus as i recall was that the invisibility the lines produce is helpful but is not the miracle formula some people think it is either. It is just one more piece of the continuing mystery that is fishing! Helpful YES! But not the whole answer!

I fish with all kinds of colors. when in clear water I just die the last five foot or so to match water clarity. white/yellow is nice at night for visibility. you can always tie on some floro if the fish are seeing your line.

Mark Stanley posted this during ice fishing season --- he was fishing for crappies in 30 fow with Fireline Crystal and it was really easy to see the line on the underwater camera, even in 30 fow under the ice. That's just FYI and not saying the line is good or bad --- Mark and I both use it ice fishing in some conditions especially when the fish are biting lite.

It took me a couple of years of fishing PP on and off to be a full convert but I think I am here to stay. I like the moss green. My kid likes the yellow but that is only because it make his fishing rig look cool (Green rod, Burnt orange reel and yellow line)

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...
