Branches maybe but no rocks, no rocks at all where i fish. I'm using new St. Croix Saltwater trolling rods. At $280 each the eyes are mint.

Sufix performance braid is great so far.
I like it better than all the rest. Including yozuri hybrid, fireline, and powerpro. I havent tried tuf line yet. just ordered some.

i spooled up my freshwater spinning rig with 10lb fireline last week and went for some buckets...without thinking the better casting that comes with it...i whipped my home-made jittergug high into the tree tops across the cove i was fishing....i really believe if i had mono i never would have got it back...i took some lumber down with it. that stuff saved my bug...

Red face Re: Braided line keeps breaking!

I've been using PP on about every setup I use and never had the breakage issue... It has broken on rocks and ledges yes, but never for no reason.. some of my setups are going on the 3rd season with the same line .. so far it's the thinnest I can find and the best for jigging for me.. I guess if it happened to me I'd feel the same as some do but until then it's my line of choice...
Beware the "sneak attack"!!

I have been using pp for two years and had no problems. I also used spiderline? I think I know I shouldnt do it but I buy what is on sale, mainly because I get it in knots and loose it all I havent caught a fish big enough to break it yet, so until that happens I wont worry about it. I do keep it in good condition however and replace worn sections. but like I said so many wind knots and lost gear that usually keeps the line fresh. My suggestion is find one you like that doesnt break one thing I have learned from this site is that every fisherman is different. but you all catch fish.

I've tryed pp and fireline of all types. Suffix Braid is the best braid I have used to date. It cast like a dream, no breakage problems. The stuff is GREAT. If you havn't tryed it do so you should love it
