    I may alone here, but I have posted on this before in response to power pro issues. I use their 80 on a Saragosa for jigging and casting with my 7’6” OTI. It works great, though a bit less limp than Jerry Brown. I bought it after speaking with the guys at Fisherman’s outfitter in Gloucester. I was going to put Momoi Diamond Braid on it, but it was very expensive. They actually said the Power Pro hollow is much more abrasion resistant than the Momoi and even JB….showed me by rubbing it on the corner of a metal box……power pro solid gave out in like 2 rubs….Momoi took about 15 and the power pro hollow rubbed about 30 times without almost any fraying. I have been very impressed with it. IT IS NOT THE SAME AS POWER PRO SOLID!!!!!!

    and free shipping on any order over $75.........

    oddly enough,...... it's a member here

    360Tuna - View Profile: Angler Systems

    I've never done any business with'em but if anyone here has, please speak up..... (the member is 'Jeff' i assume)

    i'm only gonna be here at my 2nd home for 11 more days and rather
    than taking a chance on getting everything coordinated correctly,
    i'm gonna wait and have it shipped to my billing address if no one steers me away from'im

    sorry semipro,.... there was no 60# PP hollow shown on the website and they are out of the 80# in Florida but he said they have a warehouse in New Jersey that might have stock (but he didn't call me back on that)

    i can wait on a backorder at that price

    Do they make 60lb power pro? I don;t think they do, just 80 ans 150, I believe.
