IMO, its a tad expensive, but POWER PRO is the ONLY braid that will go on my reels.

For shock resistance, I wonder if fluoro or mono would be a better choice.

Berkley big game or something?

I have no experience with snagging big carp, but in general braid can be pretty annoying for break-offs if you are dealing with sudden hard runs. I think a lot of folks keep their drag tight to help with the hook-set, but then that contributes to break-offs.

As someone else pointed out about the knots - could you tell where your line breaks were? That would certainly help with the troubleshooting.

Use palamar knot if you use braid.

Crosshairy,
Judging from the amount of line I reeled in after the break I would say "about" 5 to 10 feet from the knot towards the pole.

Dodge Man,
I guess you didn't !!!

Limited in choices due to there not being a sporting goods store within an hour of here.

If you can find it get some 30 pound Pline CXX. The stuff
is cheap and unreal strong.

Uniknot is what I use and what many braided lines recommend. I double my line before I tie it.

Well when the current is rocking you got to have some tough gear! They catch 60, 70, 80 and even 90lb carp there in the spillway when it is right. We caught some 50 and 60lb fish this year and with the current you think you hooked the back of a boat at first! lol
