    I’m getting close to restockIng some PE braid. What’s everyone using? What are your go to SPJ braids. Looking for bulk spools of the thinnest, high breaking strength, and good abrasion resistance, from PE1 to PE3

    Just gave a search for the super braid a quick look. It’s $199 for a 3000y spool that’s like have the price of a good Japan PE. Are the crystal and smoke the only colors?

    I like white on all of my stuff. I've tried numerous different colors, and white has become my favorite.

    sounds like you’re talking about fireline and not yozuri . They don’t have a crystal and smoke color .

    Is there a preference for regular yozuri superbraid or superbraid 8 for the 20/30lb lines?

    Hmm... definitely need bigger spools than 150m. Are they continuous spools up to a certain length or 150m Individual spools

    Same question for the superslick v2. I tested 30 v2 ABS to 49lbs which is good but I don't have a good way to measure diameter.
