Original PowerPro 15lb Braid

PowerPro fishing line begins with ultra-strong braided Spectra Fiber and is then treated with Enhanced Body Technology to create an incredibly round, smooth and sensitive line. PowerPro is a low-stretch braided fishing line with the same all-around great performance that anglers have come to expect, making it the workhorse of the PowerPro family of products. Fish PowerPro: No matter the challenge. No Matter the condition. No Matter What.


Key Statistics

  • Measured Diameter: .315mm (165.8% on stated .190mm)

  • Measured Breaking Strain:25.9lbs (172.8% of rated 15bs)

  • Abrasion Breaking Strain: 10.73lbs (41.4% of max break)

  • FG Knot Breaking Strain: 20.27lbs (78.2% of max break)

Nothing special here, performing pretty poorly on every test. Interesting to note that 15lb Original PowerPro is actually almost identical to 8lb PowerPro v2 in almost all categories, however the v2 is way smoother.
