    Why, friends don't let friends use PP.

    I have some in 10 lb spooled on a stradic 5000FJ. Have the green though.
    It feels super smooth out of the box but the coating falls off pretty fast, doesnt really give you better casts even.
    My favorite so far is the 832 and Fireline, will be trying Nanofil soon.

    Please tell me what is wrong with ultracast? Secondly he is a jigging friend of mine and I am just ribbing him. I have had far less problems with ultracast than PP. As a matter of fact I have had far less problems with all other braids combined I have used than PP.

    sorry guys just seeing if anyone has used it since its the only brown braid out there was wondering if it has any benifit in murky water.i do use a fluoro leader so i guess it dont matter.Ive heard good things about the new slick 8 stuff but am a fan of fins braid.just seeing whats out there, I need to spool up 2 Sustain 3000FG's i got in thursday. i like that last line george. and i guess im an inshore fisherman as of late.....

    you gotta be a jack of all waters i fish everything from sails to salmon. snook tarpon and bass included, fly and livebait even trolling. i have no issues with ultracast, never used it, it might be great, but i have used power pro and fins for years and have no complaints on either. as for the color of line i dont think it matters to the fish since you have a leader on anyhow. it only serves good with a need for hi vis in trolling and kite fishing when you need to see the line. fish only care about the leader not whats on your reel. stuff like that is to catch fisherman not fish

    I have been using the super 8 #15 for a while now , my main gripe is its not near as round as the sufix braid.The color doesn't last (no biggie) and the slick coating wears off quickly (I don't think that makes a difference) other than that its just OK imho.

    forgot to add cortland master braid makes a brown colored braid also.

    Sounds like an angler issue to me.
    I fish this braid throwing 1/8 oz crappie jigs into 25 mph winds with no problem whatsoever.

    Check out Momois Diamond Braid Gen 2 it comes in brown.... I've only herd good things about it so far... I have herd alot of complaints about the new super slick coating falling off so I would stay away from that stuff right now.
