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)

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
