I'm not at home to check, but it's 8 strand braid,color is fading some on first two colors after 5 outings, but it is holding up.I've used moss green powerpro and the color faded just as fast. Caught a bunch of fish on it. I really like it. It casts just add well as powrrpro.It was an auction bid, so I got it cheap. I bid max $5 on a bunch of  spools and got lucky on one.I will buy more!

That is *dirt* cheap for 500 meters! I currently use a similar line from Daiwa but it sure as heck cost me a lot more! How's the diameter for a 40lb breaking strength? I would doubt that it's really 40lb but even if it's just 30 and the thickness isn't crazy, I'd be tempted to buy some too. Would you mind posting a link so I know what you got exactly? Thanks!

I ordered a 500 meter spool of 40 pound test from ebay. Won the bid for a steal $3.58us. I don't know how it will hold up compared to better known braids,but I tried it today and the stuff is awesome. Every 30 feet the line changes color. Perfect for trolling or deep water jigging with out a line counter reel. It's like adding HD to your fishing line.I doubt the color will be as vivid as it is for more then a few trips,but I have enough to respool a few times.

Lots of brands in our market are just rebranded and different packaging.
