I use suffix i think it is one of the best on the market today. I use their heaver lines for catfishing pike and salmon. Works well in rocks and brush.

I have heard good things about Sufix, but I am still a Trilene guy. I have used Maxima before and found it to be a little stiff, but very durable. I do not like the Iron Silk, but I know a lot of people like it. Once again, line is line and most likely its made in the same factory like much of the fishing equipment these days.

I have Suffix on a couple muskie set-ups (65 & 80) and a couple bass (30lb) as well. I really like it, packs well on the spool, smooth, and casts well. Cost is about the same as P Pro, but I may switch more over from PP to Suffix.

I've used Sufix ice line, and was impressed probably my favorite ice line to date. VERY limp, with little memory. One minor drawback is that is has a little higher stretch than I'm used to, but the other positives outweighed the negative.

I hope it is good, I just spooled up 12 Walleye rods, 14 pike rods, 8 musky rods and 5 sturgeon rods with it. I tried it out last year and was very impressed with it. 32 boxes of line it better work out.

I used it for Musky and catfish last year and it out performed my old standby Whiplash that turned into Spiderwire Stealth. Cast better, knottted better and tougher then a boy named Sue.

So you guys talked me into trying this line and I have it on two reels. I was getting that itch so I was getting my rigs all ready. The line is jumping off the spool. It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. I put my line on all the time and did nothing different, but if this is how Sufix performs out on the water, I am going to freak out. I am seeing some twist in the line, but it should not effect it that much. Any suggestions? Someone told me to start the boat and let the line out the back (no lure) and that will remove all twist and memory issues. Can anyone confirm this? And yes, I know that the line needed to be put on the same direction as the spool itself.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
