I have tried many of the lines listed above and this line is just in another realm.
Varivas Avani Casting PE SMP (Super Max Power)
50# is size PE 3 (.285mm)
I think I have had mine spooled up for about 14 months now and have used it in freshwater and saltwater. Still looks and acts brand new.
No dig, and a dream to cast. I have to work really hard to backlash this line.
Pricey, but I would call it a very good value.
Varivas is worth every penny.

I use original recipe power pro yellow in 30lb test with a 15-20lb leader. Do you dislike the original PP lines?

I really like Sunline FX2 in the blue/green 50lbs. Very little to no bleeding, stays round, although it’s listed as an 8 carrier braid, it has the rough texture of a 4 carrier braid which I actually prefer when tying leaders( fg knot) as it grabs/digs into the leader material for a stronger connection when compared to slick braids.
