To me it doesn’t matter; if their internal processes are that bad all of their products are suspect

I've used both, and I feel 832 is vastly superior. See my above pic of the fraying with Performance. Nothing like that happened that easily with the 832, I quite liked it. Noisy, and did fray a bit after it was abused some. But the Performance braid was barely used.

I've had my best luck in the abrasive salt with braids that had a "Tracer" in the line.  It was usually some type of different line than the rest that was more abrasive resistant, and was enough to help the total package hold up longer.

IN 832 they call it "Gore" stuff.  I've gone through so many braids that I can't keep the stuff straight anymore. But I will say that two polymers braided together usually work better than one in most abrasive conditions.

Wonder what would happen if some company used like 5 strands of normal braid and brought in two strands of some kind of high abrasive copolymer in the total thing?

Another braid I have been throwing for the last few months is Bull Buster Braid in the 40lb variety. 0 complaints, it has served me well and landed me several nice fish with out any issues.

How would you compare it to power pro Lou?

I've used my share of Bull Buster braid too, 20 to 50lb and it is one of my go to brands of braid.

I've been pretty happy with power pro very affordable and available, color fades pretty quickly but nothing a big sharpie can't fix,I see they are coming out with new  Power Pro Super8Slick V2 Braided Line looking forward to trying that.
