Personally I like Fireline.
Fished all season long with the same line. Maybe one or two wind knots in the beginning but I think thats going to happen with anyline you use out there.I used power pro for a short time and didnt like it at all.I encountered alot more problems and felt the line was not as strong as fireline.
I was going to experiment with whiplash this year but after what happened with power pro I 'll stick with my fireline!
Gear I use:
10ft st. croix penn 704z
9.6 breakaway penn 6500
8.6 st.croix penn 6500
all spooled with #30 fireline.

power pro

I use power pro. I think its awsome. All I know is it held up to 4ft Jackcrevalle (est 55lbs) from 11am to three pm. the only reason I did not land the fish is because I was fishing super lt tackle for sea trout down In Jacksonville A few weeks ago. We chased the fish for 5 miles out to sea. i think the line still would have held but the waves were breaking over the bow of the small low profile flats boat that I chartered, capt said I had to try and horse the fish in or we might sink.. 20lb power pro 10lb spinning rod 4hr fight I have no problem with strength or knot holding ability. Im not nocking any other braid but power pro works for me!!!

leader length on braid

That depends on what you are fishing for. If i am casting i tie a 12in piece of flouro carbon to a small spro swivel. If i am bottom fishing for tog or seabass i like to use 10 to 15 feet tied with dble uni knot. this serves two purposes. one it is a good shock leader(graphite rod) two it is easy to untangle mono than braid especially when its cold and my fingers are not working
