Braided Fishing Lines

Power ProBraided lines were originally brought to the forefront many years ago with Dacron and companies like Fenwick introduced some of the first spools made for fishing bass with Ironsilk, Today's technology has been greatly improved with lines being made more round so they resist binding on the spools, better coatings for increased casting distance and better coloring which helps resist fading. There are several leader on the market but one of the most popular remains Power Pro. Braided lines biggest advantages are the fact that they possess nearly zero stretch, no memory like monofilament and fluorocarbon lines have and a much smaller diameter for the strength of the lines. These features can really boost certain technique's effectiveness but can also hinder some, especially when fishing moving reaction style baits. Braided line also floats by nature and is available in quite the array of colors like Moss Green, White, Red and Hi Viz Yellow.

Here are the diameter for Braided lines in comparison to monofilament, fluorocarbon and copolymer lines out today.
