PowerPro Maxcuatro 30lb Braid

Product Details

Maxcuatro delivers the same great performance anglers have come to expect from PowerPro but is 25% thinner than standard PowerPro braided fishing line with equivalent strength. Maxcuatro features 4-end construction made with next-gen Honeywell Spectra HT fiber to optimize casting distance while also increasing line capacity on the reel. Maxcuatro enables anglers to downsize their tackle without reducing line capacity and maximize their total fishing performance.
