Didn't want to hijack goosehunters post.
I bought some of the kast king braid in 15# green and it feels thicker than I thought it would, no memory and the green didn't get on my fingers while spooling my reel.
I can't say how it fishes as I haven't had it out yet but will be fishing for stripers at Texoma the last full week of March and can give a better review, I hope, when I get back.

Thank you for the reply. Please do let me know what you think. They have quite a few versions of their braid as well that I was looking at. Mega8, Kastpro and SuperPower. When you have as many poles as I have, it costs a small fortune to spool them all lol, so it would be nice to find a cheaper option to the PowerPro I have been using.

I ended up not going to Texoma due to this virus crap but have had a chance to do some fishing, not catching, just fishing and the line casts very well and no memory like the mono does but I expected that from the get go. Like all my braid I run it casts even better after a few casts and it gets wet don't know why but it does. Very little wind resistance while casting.
I'll probably buy it again in the future.

Thanks for the update. I will probably try it out.

hadn't thought about it like that but it could be. There are a couple places that I fish if the water is up and I can't reach the hole i"m trying to hit I'll cast as far as I can with dry line and let the bait sit and a few minutes before it's time to use fresh bait I'll pour some water on the spool let it soak in and then rebait and cast out and gain another 5 to 10 yards. Doesn't seem like much but sometimes that's all it takes.
