Well, I broke down, last week, and loaded one of my outfits up with braid. I took my Quantum Accurist reel and a Medium heavy 7' rod and spooled up with 30# Power Pro Hi-Vis yellow line. I added a Gamma 16# Flourocarbon leader, and tied on a Storm Swimmin' shad lure. Today was the first time I had a chance to test the outfit. On the second, very long, cast, I set the hook on an 8' log.:B . I said Oh S#@%t, I'm going to lose half of my line and a good lure. I put as much pressure as I could, on the rod, thumbing the reel for extra drag, and hoping I didn't break the rod. All of a sudden, the log began to move toward me. It took several minutes to bring it to shore, but, the line and the knot held!!! I was impressed with the performance of the line, and the blood knot line/leader connection. I just might be spooling up a few more reels with Power Pro.
