I like pp 40 lb. This is on van staal vs 150 and 250 reels

But i micro reel and dead drift needles and plugs.

I get wind knots i do like 40 pp the regular line.

 

Im wondering if the super slick will do the same

 

Who else has gone through this 

With vs reels and drifting. 

What have you gone to for line or corrected the problem

Can't help much here only ever used original Fireline on 250 or 705Z, behaved nice when it came to wind knots or tip wraps. That said just spooled a new VR201 with 40lb super slick2 to try, curious how guys like it myself.

original fireline. Anytime I try to use anything else eventually I take it off, trash it, and go back to fireline. yes I know most wind knots are user error. Its a PITA.

I was a big fireline fan, then used powerpro for a long time, and recently switch to black (onyx) SS8 V2, and I have to say, I love it.  It almost feels like a cross between the two - small diameter like powerpro but with a noticeable waxy sort of coating that makes it stiffer like fireline.  

 

I briefly tried the regular superslick and didn't like it, but this V2 stuff feels very different.

i switched to ultra cast (spider wire ) i had an issue with braid wrappin around guide eyes, since the change nada... not sure if it would help in your application ... it is finer, supple, and clean feelin when you run your finger up the line... :why:

V2 Super Slick is great. It's all I have on my spinning reels from #15 to #50. Haven't had any issues with wind knots at all. Like it so much better than Sufix 832 (and this is something I thought I'd never say considering how awesome I thought 832 was when it first came out).

I use pp or Daiwa J8 on all my reels and only hag a problem with my tsunami and that was fixed after I stripped some off. I still believe wind and light lures create most of the problem not the lines
