What brand of BRAIDED fishing line is the strongest (BREAKING POINT TEST)?
What brand of BRAIDED fishing line is the strongest (BREAKING POINT TEST)?
#bassfishing #braidedline #fishingknots
In this video I took 3 of the most popular brand of braided fishing line (seaguar, power pro, and sufix) and put them to the test. We performed the abrasion test as well as a breaking point test to see which brand of braided fishing line was actually the strongest!

Bro these videos are awesome!!
Dude I love your videos.. numbers dont lie
could you please test the Gamma Torque against the top 2 from this testing? the gamma torque is a 16 strand braid instead of a 8 or 4 strand
832 is 30bucks
Now use an 8 strand Piscifun braid to be fair. I don’t use any of these but it seems that the Piscifun did pretty well considering.
You need to try p-line braid next it’s the one I switched two after using power line
Came across your channel love your testing methods! Wonder if you would go back and do the strength test again with the flourcarbon like you did here with the Braid I use cheap flouro cause line isn’t cheap for something have to replace frequently lol
I’ve used powerpro line on my spinning rods for years and have been really happy with it. Sometimes the line with be spooled on for more than a season and I’ll use it in fresh and saltwater and even drag catfish across rocky river bottoms with it. It’s good stuff and worth the cost to buy a bigger spool to fill several rods with it.
We did a break test on several 10 lb test and 8 lb power pro won our test the all new snipping braid 10 lb broke between 5 and 6 every time
Stick that garbage Power Pro up your A$$,may as well add J Braid along with it.
Been using Fireline since it hit the market.Have tried many brands since and kept going back to Fireline.
6-7 yrs ago I tried Hercules and been using it since on all my 40-50? reels/rods. 1094yd spools for $30-40….yeah keep your overpriced line.
Am I going to watch the vid…..no,don’t need to,tried them and sticking to Hercules.
Would love to see you test the suffix 131. Expensive but I heard great things about it. I’ve been using Powerpro for all my flipping/punching and finesse set ups but decided to switch to 832 for this year just to test out other brands and different price points.
Came across your channel so underrated! I’ve used 832, the ssv2, and the smack down. I’ve found that for casting the seaguar actually casts better than the other two but that’s me just sharing a little info cause this information stuff you do is awesome!
Since you used bps line in the fluorocarbon, how about a comparison with bps Excel braid?
Great tests, very well done. But I don’t really understand the american way of thinking about fishing lines. I select diameter to fit the situation, and then I compare breaking strain at the same diameter. I don’t select line based on the claimed breaking strain. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense to compare a .14 line to a .22 line just because they claim the same breaking strain. I mean, obviously they don’t have the same breaking strain and if they did, well that’s the winner right there. The real take away here is that power pro dominated the test as it had a higher breaking strain than the two thicker lines. Sufix was the worst by far, at .22mm could barely outperform the cheapest .14mm line you could find. Anyway, great video, after seeing this test my seatrout reel is getting new line as it was filled with Sufix 832 coastal camo.
Your test is flawed. Checkout this video on doing it side to side, that what really shows abrasion resistance. https://youtu.be/g2ilksQgUMg
Does anyone use backing on their reels before loading with Braid? Or some may load with braid then take off all the line and put in on backwards, anyone?😁
Fins is a superior braid to all of these. I promise if you haven’t tried it….do it.
Been using power pro since the 90s. They were the only braid back then that didnt bury itself in the spool. I have used some seagar gray braid because it’s so damm quiet. Interested in seeing knot strength and maybe someway to test castabilty
Kinda glad I use powerpro now…thanx
Great video, could you do this with mono next because we use a lot of mono and would like to see some mono videos. Keep up the great work.
Great video, using a tensionless hitch was definitely a good idea, something else you could add is a snatch test and stretch test. The variety of results on the abrasion test are because of changing the angle while pulling
You should test the power pro vs spiderwire durabraid.durabraid is supposed to be more abrasion resistant. Just curious. I used to like spiderwire but I swear the quality has went down in the last couple yrs
FALSE ADVERTISEMENT from the manufacturers. PowerPro and most other brands of braided line performs at about 50% of its rating strength. I tested over 10 reels of brand new braided line from different stores and they all failed. PowerPro was the worst. The only brand that I tested that came close to capacity was a 65 lb diamond braid that broke at 50 lbs. I would recommend pull testing any brand-new line you purchase prior to using it. Before responding negatively to my post, go try it yourself. I went into a bait and tackle shop where they have a massive inventory of line and they spool it on for you. We spent an hour testing all different brands and weights and like I said, failure at unacceptable levels. I hope this helps you with your choices. I may just get away from braided all together. FYI, I called PowerPro and they took my information They have not returned my call. Check your mono line as well. I found the Trilene Big Game 30# broke at 42 lbs, and the 40# broke at 44 lbs. If this is the case, why not use the smaller 30# line?
Should do kastking pro 13x finesse and beyond braid
Sickk. Appreciate this vid! Fluorocarbon strength test pls
How about power pro vs beast and beyond braid
Great video! Go Stillers!
So tell me why we bugger around tying leader line on when the braid seems more abrasion resistant than the fluorocarbon?
Really cool video man. 👍👍
These are such great vids
I’ve been using Power Pro for soo long and I’ve tried a few other brands but I keep going back to Power Pro. For the value and performance and reliability, I found Power Pro works best for me!
Would like to c a test on Berkeley Trilene braid.
Loved your tests dude great job very fair and scientific. Lots of time involved in doing these tests for us. Thanks . Really cool to watch. I love using power pro v2. Also just subscribed dude👍👍
Power Pro Braid is the only line I use for Braid. The cost, value, durability and fishability.
Then for Fluorocarbon, I’ve always used P-Line. Same thing… cost, value, durability and fishability are amazing.
Very informative I love it man, keep it up🤙
As others have said you should try P-line braid. I prefer it to the other brands and would like to see how it compares.
That power pro is bad ass
What about 9 strand lines
I think if you made the speed and angle of the pulls and releases more consistent, that would make for more accurate results. If the speed is varied than the uneven heating of the line can be an unwanted variable. Also, a varying angle would give more or less pressure/surface area and thus variable abrasion on the line as well. In any case, I think this is a great idea. I hope you can do one on abrasion between types of lines (braid, fluoro, mono). Looking forward to this series!
These videos are really mind blowing content. I would have bet 832 would have performed so much better. The best part was when the piscifun dropped on the strength test “ ya hate to see it” 🤦🏼♂️😂😂
Can’t wait for the part 2. Dude keep hammering data on these “super lines”
Daiwa J Braid, that new coated stuff they make, spider wire OG, Kast King Makes a really Beast looking super braid, and last but not least this stuff I’ve been using Cortland Silent Flip 12 Carrier.
I NEED this Data Tyler haha
Thanks for the video. Guess I know what braid to buy next time.
PP Super Slick V2 is fantastic line. I recently got some Berkley X9 for use on my spinning reels. It’s very limp and casts better than the PP. Haven’t had any issues yet. Wouldn’t recommend it on baitcaster though. Tried it on one and it’s so fine that it digs horribly.
I’d like to see another fluorocarbon test with sunline shooter in the competition
I was wondering about the j braid grand test
Oh I knew the winner lol. It’s not even what it used to be, but still better than most! Thanks for the reassurance.
Hey I’ve enjoyed watching these line tests so much!
In next test videos, could you please do a stretch test as well? To measure sensitivity I guess?
I hope your channel grows!!
This vid is awful. You missed way too many aspects of line testing. Simple things like, drag and wrapping a line around a metal bar immediately adds friction! So poorly done.
great tests man! you got a work out making this video…you can skip the gym on fishing line test days lol
If you test again please add Beyond Braid.
Excellent format and thank you!
