    As being a fishing guide for 11 yrs I use Sufix DNA mono or power pro braid or tuffline.

    I am right there with you. I use Stren the majority of the time.

    I will also use the Spider mono.

    This year I decided I would try some of the braided stuff, just finished stripping it off and respooling some Stren. I did not like the braid. It would probably be fine if all you did was pitch and flip with it, but I don't like casting with it. It also took me one day of fishing to figure out I had to put backer line behind it or it would spin on the spool.

    Flourocarbon is not bad but it seems a little stiff to me.

    Guess I will just stick with mono.

    I love the suffix brand. Have it on both my crappie/bass poles and my river poles. It has no memory to it coming off the spool,casts good, and is tough. This is the only line going on my poles!

    well for the past couple weeks ive been trying fireline crystal and i think im going back to spider wire the crystal is just as white in the water as when spider wire turns white plus it likes to back cast way to easy you barely get the spool moving and it starts springing off maybe im just uset to sw i wanna give the suffix a try but haven't found any in town i think ill try power pro next:tu i think the fire line is ok with lottsa thumb control but i think spider wire is way better :tu

    Power Pro or P-line for braid, then Gamma has preformed well for a mono line!

    Stren Lo-Vis Green and Heavy Cover have worked well for us getting big bass out of the 'cabbage'.

    I use Stren Magna-thin and also have started using Excalibur Silver Thread. That stuff works really well and I haven't had any problems with it. Seems to be very abrasion resistant and has good knot strength. I also used Spiderwire when I was going through a "braid" phase and found that if you wrap some of the thicker rubber bands around your reel below the braid, it'll give the braid something to "bite into" so that it doesn't spin on the spool. :tu
