There are so many choices out there but my favorite is power pro. Ive used this line in Canada now for several years and have found it to be the best. One big thing is to make sure you have the right kind of pole with the right eyelets to be able to handle it.
I could go on and on about it. Love the stuff!

I try to be as honest as possible with my answers about fishing, and to be honest here, I have never found any of the braided lines to be "better" than one of the others. All that I have tried seem to work well under most of the conditions I have put them under. I buy on price and what is easily available at the time of need. The very last I bought was Power Pro and before that was Fireline both from Wally World and they worked safisfactory doing all that was expected from them.

depends on your gear.baitcaster or spinning reel?do you like to use light softlures or heavy jerkbaits?
I don´t like power pro I tried 3 diff lines.i think the strengh is seriously overrated!Spiderwire looks the same but i think its way better then power pro.My favorite braid is fireline tournament exceed #20 I like it´s stiffness.
I also like nanofil.it casts like a bullet no matter what diam you choose.

I personally detest "braids" of all mfgr.'s. If you're looking for a line other than Mono or Fluoro, go w/FIRELINE!

gtabassin, Back in the seventies Gudebrod gave me free braided line to use, Fuji gave me free tapered mono line to use and Stren gave me free mono line to use. I tested all of it on reels under extremely hard fishing and ended up liking the feel of the soft Stren the best at that time. But I sponsered the Fuji tapered line because it had less stretch and I caught more fish with it. Now days, I have to pay for my line and I buy on price. When worm fishing I like the braided lines which do not stretch as bad as mono, but I like soft mono for casting with my baitcasters. Sufix Elite has long been a favorite of mine there and it has consistently been one of the less expensive. But in the braids, I have not found enough difference in quality to be able to judge by anything other than price. I just buy what is the cheapest on the shelf on the day that it is needed.
