Depends on what you are racing. I use Red Fox for opens and what I have left of Prime braid for the other classes.

Big Mama, Prime and Gugu, don't see a noticeable difference between them.

Paw braid is new on the market, my dad makes the braid. Lots of people have liked it. It's sold at a lot of tracks, though it's fairly new so it's not as well known yet.

Agreed.

Im not sure if Prime braid was offered soldered 15 years ago or I just dont remember, but I used them a few weeks ago and they were great.

I used to solder Big Mamas by the gross in the past and it was no fun. Necessary, but no fun.
