And just to let you know there is nothing wrong with power pro, thats about all I use, the best line ever made for fishing, you just have to know how to use it.

Seriously though, when you can wrap 65lb powerpro around your hand and break it, There is something wrong with it. This line never saw a reel, it was breaking off the spool.

Double it up run 150lb power pro it has the diameter of 30lb or so they say. Pound for pound power pro is weaker then mono but when doubled up its thin and remarkably strong.

Honestly I've been burnt by power pro twice now and I don't think I'll ever buy another roll.

Probably sounds crazy but I fish the dyneema HongKong ebay braid and love it.I've used it for about three years now and never had a problem.

But there are some that love powerpro and swear by it. I'm just not one of em.

I agree theres alot of outlandish claims about the BP incident, but theres no way the biggest man made disaster didnt negatively effect our marine life. Go swim in oil for a while and see if it doesnt hurt you.

There seems to be fewer mingo (vermillion) on the edge this year, but we've been catching them everywhere else. They're some of the most fickle fish I've ever encountered on a full moon.
