Default Best Braid?

I've always fished power pro braid, and am looking to possibly expand my horizons. What do you all prefer to use?

I been using power pro with ok results IMO. Put Suffix on BadAnimuls reel and she hasn't had near the troubles I have with line twist and knotting. I might change to that next time, not sure though.

I just put on some Fireline is some bright @ss green color, seems to be working good but its noisy!

I had my ups and downs with powerpro, I hope fireline works for me.

i have been happy with 20lb power pro, going to try some 10 lb on a spinning reel it was to thin for my bait caster, it would git into the crack between the spool and frame

PowerPro 6# and 15#. Fireline Crystal 2#, 3#, and 14#. All used with a swivel and Yozuri Hybrid (smoke, clear, or green) 4#, 6#, 8#, 10# for leader material.

15# PowerPro is great for baitcasting.

I'm using Power Pro and Fireline on several different rigs. Both lines are performing good for me, but overall I prefer Power Pro. 100 percent Power Pro on all of my Muskie and Pike Rigs. About half and half on Bass and Walleye rigs.

Starting to really love the Fireline. Have both the smoke and crystal in several different sizes from 4# - 30#! Does seem to cut on sharp rock edges fairly easy, but trying to break it any other way is chore! Casts well and love the low memory!
