Sufix 832

Recommended Posts

I just posted on the catfish forum about this too. I put 80 lb. 832 on a couple of reels this spring. I was casting a practice plug off the dock to get everything ready and the green color in the 832 ran quite badly. There were green water droplets all over and it was on my fingers. Anybody else notice this?

Iv got 20lb on a casting reel for bass fishing, horrible im sure 80lb would be even worse. If i didnt love the line as much id would never spool it again.

Hmmm... I had a guy at cabelas trying to pitch this to me a couple days ago as the greatest stuff yet. I'm glad I decided to wait a year or so before buying some

I thought maybe this was going to be good stuff, looks like Stren Super Braid again for the new reel, I've had awesome results with it.

I think he's referring to the color running; which I've seen in pretty much every heavy braided line that I've run (especially my stren superbraid). I've got the stren on 4 rigs now (and don't plan on pulling it), but going to give the 832 a shot on my new winch. I've been using it on my walleye jigging setup and really like it there, so hoping I'll like the 80 as well. I'm looking forward to the line not picking up so much water.

I didn't notice colors running on the one rod I have spooled with 832 when I was out last weekend. There is a coating that will rub off though.

I had green hands after using regular Sufix braid last year the first few times out. Worst I've seen for excess coloring/coating coming off initially - other than that I like the line overall.

Is it worse than Power Pro? I just spooled up my new TE with this stuff and don't want it to turn green!

I had about the same color runoff with PP and Sufix Performance Braid. The Sufix may have been a bit more, but it seemed to wear off faster. The PP still seems to leak a little.

I'd have to assume 832 will be about the same.

Green Fireline braid is currently the worse color bleeder currently for me, gives me the green thumb and green everywhere I touch. I've been using 832 braid on several other baitcasters and haven't noticed any color bleed or coating shed. One reel has been used exclusively for 6 outings of around 4-6 hours straight casting and retrieving constantly. It might be the batch of line. I also never encountered any of the color bleed or skin shed in Sufix Performance braid. However I'm pretty selective when I buy that stuff to make sure I don't get the heavy coated line batch. Seen some stuff that looked like waxed dental floss.

It bleeds green at first then subsides a lil.i like the water repelent aspect of it.my thumbs turned green but it seems to be pretty good over all.my buddy cut the heck out of his thumb on the 80#.it seemed to be a lil sharper than most other "super lines". I cut myself too tryin to undo one of my signature back-lashes.I think ill go back to cortland next time tho.

For the money you spend on 832 it better tie it's own knots. The name makes me think on an old Firestone tire.

It shouldn't cost you any more than any other braid you buy (except PowerPro, which has always been a few bucks cheaper).

    • I did put some runner rugs down the center 😁
    • This team is not going anywhere with  Tom Thibodeau as there coach.  
    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us.
