Phenix Rods Hydra 8 Strand Braided Line Green

I liked the review on here so I ordered a spool of 40 lb for chatterbaits. Is anyone else using it? How do you like it?

I have used it, I like it a lot also compared to 832 or Powerpro, I like how it is softer and doesn't lose color as fast. I just wish they had more color options.

I used 30lb last fall on my chatterbait rod and really liked it. Casts well, doesn't dig in too bad and seems to be a pretty tight, round weave.

I use it in 30lb on a few different reels. I have less than a season on it, but so far, no complaints, like said it's seems to be holding it's color well, and so far I like it better than 832.

I've fished this in 40 pound last season and I really like how it casts and it's much quieter than PowerPro for sure. I did notice though that the line fades pretty quick, but just slightly though. Once it fades a little bit though it tends to stay that same color for a while (pretty similar to what tackle tour's review was stating).
