"Suffix 832 does not sink. I've been using it for a while and contrary to those who only read about fishing, it does not sink. Lines like fluorocarbon do sink but they aren't like lead core, they barely sink. Even floating braided lines barely float. A small bare hook will cause them to sink"

This comment cracks me up.... if you throw top water or float fish for steelhead, you will notice a big difference in performance from a floating braid vs a sinking fluorocarbon line, etc.

Using for what? As backing on a large trolling reel, or casting on ultralite spinning rods? Makes a big difference in what I use.

I've been using the fireflies (smoke & crystal) since it came out and use it the most. I also have been using power pro for years. I am very happy with both. I bought spiderwire a few years ago and like it too. I like them all. I'm not a pro, but I do fish a fair amount for numerous species lakes and rivers.

I have had minor issues w/each,mainly unreasonable tangles. ??

Good luck.

Power pro for me also. Do use fireline or suffix 832 for a couple spinning rods as well and no complaints there either. But most bang for the buck power pro for sure.

Yep, power pro is a great line. Others do specific things better, but overall power pro is my go to line.

Stick with the power pro ive had problems with spiderwire stealth and berkly premium line (cant remember fire line or something) Stealth braid would randomly snap casting and the fire line retained memory. Junk. I was fishing with my uncle he had 1 1/2 oz. Dare Devil stuck in a log. Had 30# Power Pro Flor carbon leader. What do you guess gave out??? The split ring on the dare devil gave out. No bs wouldnt have believed it if i hadnt seen it. So that just tells ya how tuff that line is!!!

I fish with Berkley braided lines, mostly fused crystal. It casts great, is durable as hell, and holds knots well if you cut your tag ends correctly. Other lines might seem better based on price, but they're made overseas, thats the only reason why they are cheaper. Berkley is made right here in the midwest. If you're up in Canada you could check out Thundermist braid, i've heard that it's good but not had a chance to try it; it's supposedly made right in Ontario.
