Power Pro Super Slick Braided Line, constructed with 8 yarn Spectra fiber braided under high tension, has a ''smooth as silk'' surface. The smooth surface means reduced line friction on the spool and through the rod guides, which allows PowerPro Super Slick to cast like a bullet. An additional benefit of the Super Slick smooth surface and reduced friction is reduced line noise, allowing you to fish with stealth and silence.
Super-Slick is 8 yarn Spectra fiber construction for anglers who demand high performance.
PowerPro ''EBT'' (Enhanced Body Technology) process creates a stronger, thinner, smoother and quieter line.
Available in 8 sizes (10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 65, 80lb) and 4 colors (Hi-Vis Yellow, Marine Blue, Timber Brown, Aqua Green.
This line was spooled onto two different reels and rods I used at the OBX. One reel was the Penn SSV7500LC, and the other on a Shimano Ultegra XSC Surf Spinning Reel. Both reels performance was outstanding with this line. The blue color I chose was alright for visibility but I think yellow would have been better, that's just an opinion. The line is thin and casts very well from these reels with the right rod matched to it. My first experience with the line was on a Penn SSV7500LC, and the line flew off the reel with a 12 foot heavy rod, never an issue with wind knots on that particular rod and reel setup. My second experience was on the Shimano Ultegra XSC, and it was mounted to a 10 Foot light Newport rod from Penn (not made anymore) it did not do well with that rod. It almost always threw a wind knot out the guides. Not the lines fault at all, as I purchased a new rod recommended to me from Jam at Teaches Lair in Hatteras while I was there. The new rod was a TICA Samira 9 foot fast action and the line loved that rod and the Ultegra. I was easily making power casts to near 375 to 400 feet with metal in an offshore wind without tangles at all on that combo. I have used power pro for trolling for years but never tried casting spinning reels with it before. It does take a quality rod with the right guides to avoid the tangles on a cast, but when it all works this line performed excellent with very little drag on the lure. It's also nice to have a lot more line spooled on compared to the thicker monofilament lines. I used 30 lb mono for backing on these reels and spooled on 300 yards of power pro as a top load. Lots of room for big fish to run.

I have used several braided lines and POWER PRO is still the best I have yet to use. Like the new Marine Blue just received 1500 yard spool. Love IT!
Good for casting

Super slick letâ€;™;s you cast farther.
Braid is the way to go.

If you are looking for a good line to fish with braid is the way to go. No other line on the market is as sensitive.

Can't go wrong with powerpro. very smooth.

Awesome braid for the price point. This was an added gift with my purchase! I got 40 pound. I use 40 pound braid for my main line and backing, then I add a 8-10 foot leader line mono or Fluro depending on the application.

PowerPro is the only braid I use and it has always exceeded my needs.. To me it's not worth trying an inferior braid and risk losing a big catch.

Iâ€;™;ve been using the stuff for the past eight years. Iâ€;™;ll never use anything else. Make sure you have a good real because the line can be susceptible to nasty wind knots

ProsQuiet through the guides
ConsTwists take a bit longer to come out b/c it's so slick
Power Pro is the best !!

Fishes well, at first. Then seems to get waterlogged. Better braid out there.

First time using this and will now use nothing else. Smooth and slick, casts a mile and no noise when fighting a fish. Great stuff. Highly recommended.

I been changing to braided & Hi Vis since my eyes sight has been going. The line cast nicely even with my 20' fluorocarbon leader blood knotted to it.
WORST LINE I EVER USED!
July 21, 2019
I have been a power pro line user for over 7 years when I moved to Myrtle Beach and began surf and ocean fishing. I have had some issues with birds nests with regular power pro and found it to be a great line for surf and ocean fishing. I decided to go a step up to get longer casts and I purchased the Super Slick line for my Shimano saltwater reel, (that was always spooled with power pro). WHAT A MISTAKE!!! I have more WIND KNOTS spent more time and cutting more line than I have in the past 7 years using regular power pro. Weather using bait with a sinker, carolina rig, top water lure or jighead with soft bait, there are always WIND KNOTS each time I use that reel. I am glad that other fisherman are having good results using this time wasted fishing line. Also when I am surf fishing, I use two rods and one always has the original power pro while my 7 ft rod has the super slick line and I rarely get knots in the regular power pro.

iam looking to buy your stradic 5000 fj and thinking about power braid super slick.would you give advice on line size ,color , and type and or brand. for inshore and surf fishing.would this be the right type of braid for my use.
For the 5000 you can use anything from 20 pound test braid to 50 pound test... I personally use 20 to 30 pound test for lure/jig fishing since the lower pound test keeps my cast accurate and improves my distance. Color does not make a difference, it is just preference. Also, pound test over 20 can handle most fish up to the 50 lb range if handled correctly and proper use of the drag system. Power pro slick is great for improving distance for casting, but is not as durable as the regular power pro braid.
It depends on how you storage it, take care of it, and how much use you get out of it... Some guys claim they have used the same power pro line for 15 years while others have claims to have only used it for two years before experiencing typical wear and tear problems. Also, if it starts to wear on you then you can reverse the line by spooling it directly on to another reel.
does the colour of the line work best in different colour water thanks.
The line color for the PowerPro is typically a personal preference. When using braided lines it is typically best to use a flourocarbon or monofilament leader for added abrasion resistance. So you wouldn't have to worry about the line being seen in front of your lure either.
the best way to reference diameters is by referring to their prior generation of lines. They are very similar in size. Check this link to reference http://www.tackledirect.com/powerpro-braided-spectra.html
