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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
