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.

I would say green would blend well in the widest variety of conditions.

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)

    •   Stayed home for the 4th this year, was amazed how quiet the cities seemed to be. "Is everybody up north?"
    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.
