Never tried the Suffix but here's a clue about power pro, It is great! casts very well and had great strength.

BUT....

the bad thing about Power Pro is that it cuts/nicks very easily. I wouldn't recommend using it around any structure. No wreck. No rigs. No shell bottlom. If you are gonna be fishing the open surf where there's no way a fish can put you across anything sharp or abrasive then I'd say go for it.

In the thinner diameter say 20# I don't notice much of a difference. When you start going larger say 50-65# the Sufix is a lot better in my opinion. I get less "issues" with it like wind knots, getting caught on the spool knob, line twist, and mysterious knots????. I also, think it has a little better abrasion resistance but neither are even close to say Fireline if fishing around rocks.

the consensus is there is no consensus. plenty of stuff posted in the past, do a search and you'll find plenty of good information and opinions.

Power Pro is good (if you don't get a spool with defects) Haven't had defective suffix yet but also haven't purchased as much of it as I have PP.

Suffix all the way.

I've never had a problem with PP. Used around structure, surf, boat - not one single issue with it ever. I am going to try suffix this year. Have it on a couple of rods ready to go. My thought is that it will be about the same as pp.

Been casting 30# Sufix on Abu 5500 couple of weeks (almost every day, 2~3 hrs per day, plugging / distance casting practice) and had middle of cast break off yesterday and spooled it with fresh line again.

IMHO, SufixPro is better then PP for;
- Much less green/yellow stuff coming off of line (I hate those coloring stuff on my reel, hand, rod guides, etc...)
- Better wear resistance with about same diameter.

I may move to SufixPro from the Spider Stealth I've been using.
It is bit more compact and thinner in diameter then SS of same # rating thus seem to cast a little better. Other then that I don't see much other significant improvement(s).
I was hoping for a better wear resistance but it seems about same as SS or slightly less (certainly better then PP though.) Too early to tell I guess.
It may be a different story for those heavier lines but I am a bit disappointed considering all the excitements and personal endorsements that was going on this site a while ago...
I am still to try out TuflineXP as they also seem to have some crowds standing by it and most of all, price seems to be good...

Cheers,
