Default Line color?

I'm going to try some braided line again. I didn't like it the 1st time. So my question is. Is there any color that is better than the others? Also while I'm at it, what lines are y'all using? I'm thinking about going with Sufix 832 Superline 20# in the lo-vis green. I appreciate your input.

I haven't heard that any one color is better than another. I've been using green line for years. In the color water I don't think it matters that much unless you hit a gin clear winter day. It could be a factor down Baffin Bay or Florida way. I still use 3-6' fluorocarbon to improve the odds.

Any color should be fine with a leader. I use atleast a couple feet of fluro or mono. I use power pro 98% of the time.

Suffix 832 is my favorite. Just get whatever color gives you confidence. I have low vis green and brighter-than-the-sun neon yellow and I can't tell the difference between the two.

Another vote for Suffix 832.

I use Slick 8 and haven't had an issue. Helps that I got a 3000yd spool on sale for $100!

I have used Sufix 832 and Power Pro Super Slick 8. Performance for both was similar for me. However, I have changed the majority of my baitcasters to Fluorocarbon. The only time I really fish braid anymore is on the spinning reels I use for popping corks.

My 3 favorites are Power Pro Super Slick, Daiwa JBraid, and Suffix 832, all in the neon lime green color so I can see my line above water. I use fluoro and mono leader on all of it. Tried some Finns Wind Tamer and still have a 150 yd spool I haven't touched yet but have not liked it so far.

I have used most of a large spool of Fins wind tamer, but it was 80 pound and I only used it for backing on fly reels so you only see it when you have a big enough fish to run all the way into the backing. However, I have switched to the 16 thread hollow core braid for fly reels as it is smoother and less likely to cut you under tension. I have been using Seaguar threadlock on the last few fly reels that I have loaded with backing. It is expensive but for a fly reel down here that sees normal use it should for years.
