    I've had good luck with Ande. Would like to find a good braid for my flounder fishing though. Them teefs are hell on mono. I guess I will give suffix a try. I will continue to fish mono for topwater specks and for bass.

    P-Line is one of the better ones out there. You just cant spool it up and go out and fish though. Spool it up the day before. Pretty much the same with any line and if you still have problems just use a little Reel Magic on it and you will not have any problems. If you have had it spooled up and after a couple of casts to get it wet it lays about as straight as you can get. If you are structure fishing you had better stick to Fireline though.

    FYI... Tried Gamma 6 lb on my walleye jiggin rod, ripped it back off after a week or 2 of using it. Went back to Trilene XL, no more curls. Casts a lot smoother.

    Trilene FireLine for flipping and Trilene Big Game in 15lb for spinnerbaits, crankbaits (shallow divers).

    For crankbaits, if you use a braid, you had better use a crankbait rod (extremely soft tip, e-glass) or you pull the hooks out of the fish half the time.

    I just spooled some Berkley Fluorocarbon. It casts nice and seems to be a little tougher then mono.

    you'll love the flourocarbon....while its not the best casting line they have gotten it pretty good...and if you fish cover and toothy fish it will prove itself.....not to mention flourocarbon is invisable under water.
