I bought some of the pelagic extreme braid off ebay 2 years ago in 100lb test and have used the crap out of it. Caught grouper to 30 and aj's to 50 and never had an issue with breaking. It is coarse and appears to wear and fray a bit but has never broken unless intended.

I have it on 9 of my reels and have never had a problem with it. It takes a little while to get here but is well worth it in savings. Put the expensive stuff on one reel and the cheap stuff on one and see if you can tell the difference. The braid we have in stores around here is way over priced.

The funny thing about the braid thing is that both the braid here and the dyneema overseas are the exact same thing. Just marketed differently.
