Am I the only one who hasn't had bad experiences with PP? I have had wind knots, but that was due to not keeping tension on the line during windy conditions useing poppers and pencils. Other than that I love the stuff.

Lots of guys use and like the pp Kharry. I suppose if you get a bad spool of something or cut off on an unseen object, reef or muscle bed no matter what you have on you will probably forego it in the future and consider it trash. If I happened to be using something else in the same situation how would i know? My experience with fireline has been very good and I spool everything else non mono with sufix PB. But thats just me. The first braid I ever used was power pro and probably a factor in my displeasure with it. The only pp I'll use now is on freshwater 10 pounds or less.
Buts thats all due to outings with breakoffs. Couldnt explain it the first time then when it happened again Every time I set the hook it cut. Maybe on a ledge but that was it for me.
I had it happen with fireline once as well.


Back on topic.
Lami blank - Zeebaas 2.50 with 50 Sufix PB
(not sold on the supersurf just yet) Still like the surf and jetty rod.

I try to look for knicks and frays when I fish areas that are rocky or have mussle beds. A buddy of mine didnt cut back after being run through the rocks and the line broke the next fish he had on.

yeah. had several break offs-first with a rat, others the crap just parted under minimal strain-no cracked tip or wrapped guide or other anomalies so don't start with the theories-I been through em all.

Actually I haven't had problems with PP as far as wind knots... I tried using 30# fireline and got probably 15 - 20 in a weekend,,, a big waste of time... felt like rope to me

I built a AFAW Estruary into a 1 piece with the zeebaas 27 on it. Couldn't be more happier fishing the open beach with it......
