Dont you work in a tackle store??????? Shimano owns power pro so its probably a good forum to ask. Hopefully the shimano rep can chime in for the guy.Why did you post this in "Shimano Fishing Gear" forum?
I think people are looking for exact diameters and ABS to figure out if we want to switch to max cuatro. I really don't like the feel of PP but if it's thinner than JB 100, a lot of us would probably buy a ton of it.For diameter #80max = #65pro / #65max = #50pro / #50max = #40pro
#80 is .41mm / #65 is .36mm / #50 is .30mm not sure about 100lb but based on the trend it'd have to around ~.43mmI think people are looking for exact diameters and ABS to figure out if we want to switch to max cuatro.

Our "25% average smaller diameter" claim is based on diameter compared to our own brand. I know that the 80 and 100 sizes are noticeably smaller in diameter than standard Power Pro. You can see it and feel it.You're right Dan. BUT since regular 100# PP is .018" and MC is "25% thinner" then it's .0135" so my Accurate BX2 400 would get about 484 yards of 100# Maxcuatro. Of course this is just an estimate using the Accurate line counter tool. Your results may vary. I imagine Maxcuatro opens up greater possibilities to do the small reels big fish thing with this reel or a Talica II of similar size. I'm considering spooling 100# Maxcuatro on all my rigs to increase their versatility. Cheers...
From what I have read.Thanks for the info guys. I'm skeptical in LR conditions where one is doing a long soak and then winding all that line back without a fish under finger pressure. The next bait out gets picked up and digs in since it's impossible to reel it in rock hard under finger pressure. In theory, it sounds like a good way to fish for largers with a small reel loaded with 100#. It seems one must be mighty careful winding this line and even with zig-zag winding, I can't help wondering about the high likelihood of it digging in on the ends of the spool as it goes out under a high drag when hooked up.
