    I use a ton of power pro and suffix 832. Like them both for pitching and whatnot. Still run FireLine on my crank rods as it stills seems to cut the water better.

    For anyone that likes suffix 832, Daiwa makes a braid that is very comparable in feel and overall performance. I’ve been using more of that as the year goes on.

    Oh and it’s substantially cheaper.

    Flip the spool like MSA mentioned. You can also troll or use current with nothing attached. Let out a bunch of line and reel it back in.

    Double palomar knot guy here with 10# PP all day.. Switched over to it about 4-5 years ago and finally running into some older stuff on the reels in which every knot id tie would easily break with the slightest of tug finishing the knot.. After 3 easily broken knot attempts on the fly, (in 20+mph wind of course) it was time to pull it off until i found the good-ole looking ORIGINAL moss green look again to get me through the rest of the day.
    Then it was off to scheels to send the young lad back into the inventory room to grab 5 more boxes as it was sold out that given day..
    I can already see the 33% increase in cost coming after this thread, thanks KDM!! Jk

    Is Suffux that white stuff? If it is, I tried it but had a lot of problems with it so went to PP.
    So many space aged lines out there right now I get confused. Still use mono for leaders and spinners.

    I haven't tried power pro, my 5-12 year old fireline is still working so no reason to respool.

    Why a reel with 4000 yards? Ocean fishing or ?????

    If a guy was to use it on salmon fishing gear, what poundage and would you? Pros or cons?

I use the first 40 yards of so of the 100 yard PP piece for the most part so instead of throwing it out when it gets "fuzzy", I just take that spool off and put the unused spool on, fill with fresh backing mono and tie the used section of PP to the end. The fuzzy PP is buried under the new stuff to where if it sees daylight I will probably not get that fish anyway. Saves a bit on line costs.
    Great idea. Always wondered what I'd ever use the crappy plastic "spare" spools for. Great idea KDM. Thanks, I'll do it!

    reversing the line is easily done out in the yard sans spool

    tie line off on something, walk to string it out, wrapped around a triangle of few distant trees if necessary if you don’t have a straight shot

    once it’s all off you go to tied off fuzzy end and spool up from there

    unless you ocean fish like MSA, in which case you’d need a moped or something

    True freedom is not the ability to do whatever one wants or as one pleases without restraint, rather, true freedom is the ability to what one ought to do.

    I run 20lb PP on my salmon Rods in AK. Only problem I run into is keeping it in the down rigger clamps. I use OR-16 clips and it wears into the pads that hold the line. I also fish Silvers with 10lb PP on medium walleye rods with spinning reels.

    PP or Spider wire, 20lb for cranks 10 lb on spin cast reels. Mostly buy PP now, but looks the same as Spider wire to me. When Spider Wire came out in the 90's it took a bit to learn knots and tangling, but the only mono I use now is for leaders and my shore fishing rigs.

    The salmon guide we had up in Homer AK took sections of wide rubber band and wrapped it around the PP where he put it into the clip. The rubber band took the pounding of the line and saved the pads from wear. Might want to give that a try Callem'In.

    Only problem I've had with salmon is the thrash so hard and have soft mouths, so with no stretch in the braid it seems to rip the hooks outta salmonoid mouths easier. Mono's stretch seems to absorb alot of that shock.
