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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
