Is powerpro line worth the extra $$$?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if the extra bucks are well spent, or should I use Trilene micro (which I've been using) and use the extra bucks for more AE jr.s?

Thanks!

I'm a pretty big PowerPro fan. I'd say give it at least one shot. If you don't like it, go back to what has worked for you.

I swear by it in the summer but have no experience in the hard water with it. Seems to me if you fish in a shelter it would work but I woould worry about it if I was outside.

It sure beats other superlines. No fraying or flattening. Tip it with a flouro leader and you are good to go. Lasts for years.

Power Pro or Fireline. Its a toss up to me. I use both and dont see any difference in performance. Fireline is a bit cheaper.

PowerPro is by far my choice of super lines especially in heavier weight. Fireline in anything over 14# test is too stiff and has lots of memory. Powerpro is slightly smaller in dia and more flexiable and no memory...GB

I've got powerpro on all my rods (hard and soft water) except for my UL rod which has 2lb flourocarbon. I absolutly love the line, in the long run it will be less expensive because it will last you 3-4 times longer than mono that needs to be changed every year. Its also great to work with since it has very little memory and won't fly off the spool like most new mono's. Try it out, you won't be dissappointed.

I've seen Power Pro get iced up when ice fishing in the elements (outside of a shelter), not good! It retains the water when reeled in and big ice clumps freeze on the spool.

Makes hassels!

OTherwise great stuff, I use it on my bass set-up for open water.
