    Not that there’s anything wrong with using 100 lb power pro if that’s what works for you… but for whatever it’s worth power pro had terrible shock resistance (at least years ago when I used it anyways). I used to think random break offs casting lures (or on big jumping saltwater fish which I fish for also ) etc were simply an unfortunate part of the game. However after trying some different braids, In my experience, cortland masterbraid and sufix 832 outdid Power pro in that respect no comparison.

    I prefer to use 80lb test with a 100-130lb fluorocarbon leader, I fish a smaller body of water that has a ton of musky but not many have been caught over 40" so I don't throw any crazy big baits and dont think I own anything over 10oz. I dont get vary many backlashes these days but usually have a few each season but have never lost a bait on a bad cast/backlash yet… I could probs go down to 65lb without any issues but I like to use 80lb for the added comfort I get knowing that im not gonna easily break the line and send my lure flying after a bad cast/backlash.

    Power pro is good stuff. So is Segar fluorocarbon . Lean some good knots to connect the two. It's fast and easy. The more hardware you have the better the chance of frailer

    It doesn't help things when you rap your line around the tip.

    I use 55 pound suffix Bc when I got my set up they had just sold out of power pro and they didn't have 65 lb but then I like musky innovation leaders but with how I like one of tyrants baits I have I might end up getting one of their leaders

    Factory leaders are pathetic. I tie my own. Far more cost effective.

    60lb. Is thin? Suffix 832 65lb. Is almost thicker than your 100lb. Braid

    learn to cast…don't use poor swivels… skip any kind of snap… scale it down…. catch more fish. Don't be a butcher… re-tie your knots daily, replace leaders often. Make sure that follow turns into a strike… then make sure that strike turns into a wet net. No musky will break your 65lb test braid… they wont even break your 30lb braid…. it comes down to having all the pieces in the right place and ensuring your rig is sound… stay vigilant and use lighter tackle to convince more musky to strike… what you do after that isn't any of my business….

    Not kidding about snapping off when getting back lashes. It sucks losing lures. Just did it yesterday. I was shore fishing my land for smaller lake Northern Pike with thin 30lb power pro. My 80lb was old that I originally had on the reel was getting too short and all I had in my cabinet was a new 30lb spool of braid. So I spooled up my reel with 30lb thinking I'd be just fine. I threw a 3" Dardevle spoon… wind blew at me… got a backlash… and there it went (snapped off). If I'm fishing my lake with medium heavy equipment (Older Quantum accurist and a 7'6" Field and Stream Fast Action Rod) and spoons, what line would you use? Seems as though 80lb just limited my casting distance. I am almost always fishing from my kayak. Sometimes a pontoon.

    This video only applies for those setups using really large baits, ie. anything over 10oz. I use 60lb braid for all my bucktails, topwaters, jerkbaits, etc. Only a really heavy bait will snap your line on a backlash.

    hi it my sound a little strange but try making your own wire leaders by using a piano wire string in any size you like to hold them musky on use your brain instead of your wallet just saying

    Good tip Ian, I found out the hard way with a 15 dollar bucktail using 30lb power pro! Just what you said, had the spool a little too free and she started to lash and bam, snap that line right now!
