OK, after all I have read about the legendary Power Pro line, I am going to spool my best light rod with it to see how it performs. I will be using it to cast for bass as well as for perch fishin'. In my previous experience with a Fireline, I found that the fish seemed to not like it-I got far fewer bites (perch & smallies) than fishing with mono. So, my question is-with Power Pro, should I use a mono (or some other type) leader?

I use a mono leader on all my super braids, seems to work fine.

I use a fluorocarbon leader when using power pro and have had very good results with it. The big problem with the braids is the wind knots you can get, they can get pretty frustrating. I would go with at least 20lb power pro which has a 6 lb diameter. I seem to get less wind knots when using 20lb. I tie on a spro swivel and 8lb fluorocarbon leader. Hope this helps.

I use 10/2 on my perch rods. I had no perch rigs and just tied 2 snells on the line itself. We were in wheatley and I caught my fair share just like that. Most times I use a perch rig.

Flourocarbon leader for sure, make it as long as you can get away with.... I use 6# for perch and 12# for bass....
