I have heard it from several guys that used PP line breaks. I have not had any problems with mine. It must be unnerving to hook into a fish to find out the line fails.

Line was spooled at the dealer w/ backing. Line to leader with barrel swivel leader to lure. While flatline trolling line breakes before the point of attachment of the barrel swivel, the line just broke, the lure was a floater so we got one back. The line broke 20ft before the barrel swivel.

Same crap when trolling, The line broke between the end of the rod and the line clip 2x. Thank god for the line clip or i would have lost that lure.

Anyhow Gander re-spooled me with P line and refunded my power pro costs, went out with the p line no problem, same set up!

i'm surprised. do you know if they took line from a small 300 yd spool or was it from a larger thousand plus spool in house jobby? not that it matters but i only bought the smaller spool and did it myself and some of these huge spools sit around forever and never get sold

The line came from two small 300 yard spools.

I remember a "commotion" over PP last year on another site over lots of people having trouble just as you mentioned.
Quality Control seemed to be the issue. Most made a switch.
I tried braids last year, had issues with PP myself and switched to a couple of other brands before I decided I didn't really need the hassles and went back to co polymer / monos.

Spiderwire Stealth, no problems with that braid. But I use Fireline, as well as the braid. And I like that much better than braid.

Braided line is great, until it comes in contact with anything jagged, mono actually works better there. PP will cut grooves in to most eyelets, what kind of guides you got? Also, braid is crap around rocks, could you have bounced off of rocks?
