I’ve been fishing with power pro for several years and have had no issues. I usually get 30# for all my reels. Last year I’ve had no problem with it and continued to love the stuff.
Well… this year I bought 2 new combos and spooled them with 30# Power Pro that I bought from Gander and have issues with the line breaking during casting.
There are 2 combos that still have line on them from last year and they don’t give me any trouble, it’s just the new set ups.
What is happening is when that dreaded back lash or bail closing occurs during a cast (happens maybe once a week) the line simply breaks! and my lure goes sailing!
If this happens with the older braid from last year, it doesn’t break.
Did PP go cheap-O and change something?
A buddy of mine said there are 2 locations this stuff is made (Mexico, or Japan or somewhere like that) and if you get the wrong stuff is sucks… is this true???
So confused and am loosing hope in PP. I love braid and will continue to use it because it lays out nicely and doesn’t have memory like most mono.
