Do we know the situation with color fade compared to regular powerpro

Sounds like it will be slightly thinner, that's good for line capacity. Hopefully it won't dig in the spool too much.
I have the 20lb

I am waiting on the heavier lines to come in, but I have been able to play around with the 20lb (which I was not planning on using for peacocks short of emergency backing on a spool).

It is a tightly woven line and it is "slick" (almost a glossy shine to it) with a nice brown color (if you ordered the brown like me).

My early line tests on it show that it breaks at about 40lbs (but that is not an official result yet). That assumes a 100% knot strength, so expect it to break at about 24lbs w/ a polomar knot for instance.

I have not made any casts with it so I can not comment on its performance or color-fastness.

I set up one angler with 65lb PP Super Slick. Casting seemed smooth and no break offs. The brown color was great in the stained water (if you opt for low-vis).
