    Do you guys have any experience of this braid?
    Is it really better than mono, and does it stand-up to the long term rigours of feeder fishing on pools and rivers?

    It's great stuff. I used it at the weekend in very snaggy conditions at distance and it didn't let me down once.

    It's well behaved (no wind knots) and it's good value too.

    I attack mine with a marker pen to camouflage it a little. As with most braids this needs doing every couple of sessions.

    it`s one of(if not the) best braid that you can buy, in my opinion.i use it for all my pike fishing these days,plus boat fishing at sea.it performs well on fixed spool reels as well as multipliers.

    I use 30lb Power Pro for piking - it's a good product. It's better than Fireline which is stiffer and tends to go fuzzy with use.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.
    All I've heard and read about this product is positive so I'll be ordering a spool fron the website that chavender suggested. At 19.95 including p+p for 300 yards its the best price I've found so far.

    I use 20lb on a Fin-Nor lite 4000 (best medium fixed-spool by far!), its been on the spool since May 2002 and used for Snook, Jack Crevalle, snappers, weakfish, also in the U.K. for Mackerel, gars, Bass, Pollack...I cannot fault it.
    'Nuff said. Worth every last cent. Won't tell you how many cents, your tongues would probably stick to the floor!!

    That guy on the link sells on ebay as well, he's a friend of Woody's, he sometimes does the lower breaking strains as well and if you give him a ring and leave your phone number he'll ring you when he's got a stock. I believe he buys it in bulk from USA but he's certainly the cheapest by far.
