Innovative Textiles, one of the original manufacturers of Spectra lines, may just have the solution to the gel-spun drawbacks. The enhanced body technology featured in its PowerPro braided Spectra line provides a rounder, more compact braided line, so the spool packs better and does not bury into itself. Enhanced body also allows effective use of simpler knots, and since there's no Kevlar the smoother surface of the braid won't scar guides. The compact design of the braid prevents water absorption, and the line has near zero stretch and no memory. PowerPro 50-pound test is only 0.014 inch in diameter, about the same size as 12-pound monofilament.
