What is PowerPro Super 8 Slick V2?

The Super 8 Slick V2 is arguably PowerPro's finest releases when it comes to braided line. Slick V2 is 8-stranded and provides some of the quieter and smoother performance when it comes to casting of all applications. A wide variety of color options means there is a Slick V2 for almost any situation, and price may be the only thing to consider before bagging this elite braided fishing line.

The verdict based on real customer feedback:

Reasons to buy

  • Perfectly round profile which makes it a suitable mainline for both baitcasting and spinning reels
  • The round profile also makes the line more manageable to tie solid knots
  • EBT coating provides increased abrasion resistance
  • Sometimes, coating can halt the rate at which line flies off a reel - this isn't the case with the Slick V2 and casting is smooth
  • Cuts through weed and other thick structure with ease
  • Colors held up well compared to various other braids
  • Hi-viz options, as well as more natural color options
  • Moonshine is a unique color and is perfectly suited for low light fishing
  • Available in strengths from 8-80, meaning there's a test for any applications

Reasons not to buy

  • This is a premium braided line, so it is reasonably expensive

Bottom line

The Super 8 Slick V2 is a superb option if you're looking for a premium braided line that'll last you ages for all kinds of techniques. This line offers immense abrasion resistance, while casting is an absolute pleasure. The perfectly round profile of the Slick V2 makes it a pleasure to work with and if you're tying quality knots, it'll almost never slip.

This is definitely a higher priced braided-line, but you have to consider the quality that PowerPro is bringing to the table. Many have said that the Slick V2 competes with the likes of the Smackdown.
