Power Pro is no stranger to fly anglers, especially those chasing big game on the long rod. Their super braid line is a popular choice as backing for those chasing world records. The company’s new Phantom Red is likely to become a fast favorite, as well.
The line’s red coloration is designed to make the backing disappear in the water – valuable when you’ve hooked a trophy fish and you want to avoid having toothy mackerel, ‘cuda or sharks chasing the knots or brightly-colored backing (we’ve lost several world records to just such an occurrence). Phantom Red is available in sizes ranging from 8-pound to 250-pound test. Check it out at www.powerpro.com.
