Has anyone here ever used the P-Line TCB 8 Te&lon Coated Braid? Would love to hear opinions.

Have not but Alan spools many reels with p-line braid.  Very affordable and very capable braid.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Look for knots and other inconsistencies in the line. You'll find them on occasion.

So do you recommend it or is something I should stay away from?

if a shop is spooling it on for you, it's ok as long as they are checking for "bumps" in the line.  likewise if you are buying a large spool at a discount price and can afford to have a little wasted.  if the price is comparable with other well known brands, get the brand name stuff.

Iíve never used or seen their braid. I like their CXX line. Iíve mostly switched to Izor XXX from CXX. Itís similar but cheaper.

I got a few leader spools of their 20 & 30lb floro because that's all they had. Always used seagar but really liked their floro. always looked at their line as a cheapy but I liked that floro better than seagar. I'd try some first,maybe a 150yd spool and see how you like it. I was suprised how well the floro performed.
