There are two US manufacturers of braid, Honeywell(spectra) and western filament(dyneema). Tuff line is a western filament product, it is made by the manufacturer. PP is a brand that has alot of Chinese knockoffs.

I had good luck with tuffline XP. Now they have the domin8 and 4orce. I have not had much luck finding reviews on these lines so I am going to get the 4orce and try it. I will write a review on it but not until spring. I found out that this company also makes ice fishing line but I am having good luck in that application with fluorocarbon. Some of their leaders also look interesting.

I used to swear by power pro, until it failed and they refused to stand behind their product.

I wanted to sneak in a quick trip after work, stopped on my way to the marina and re-spooled 2 reels with 50lb PP. loaded the boat and went out fishing. First cast wit a 3oz sinker and the line broke, sinker landed in the boat. It was broken clean, not knot failure. I tied up a new rig and broke off again. This continued for the rest of the day.
I e-mailed customer service who responded the following day requesting a line sample and the original packaging. Good thing I threw the packaging in the trash can at the marina where I re-spooled.
I eplained the situation and offered a sample, the reciept, and a copy of my bank statement showing the charge, they refused and insisted on the original packaging.
That was the last time I used PP, it came off all my reels that day.
