    I too swear by Power Pro (the older one - NOT 8) and Fireline.

    If you are getting 250 ~ 270 yards out of the 300 yards you are fine I think buddy, it's because of the 8 strands of the Kairiki Line

    There few things you can do:
    • Go back to Power Pro and sell the line you have on the Classifieds if you wish to recoup some spending; https://classifieds.fishingkaki.com/
    • Use a lighter line like 20lb to 15lb (if they have it) or go 10lbs if possible and relates to your type of fishing
    • Use a different line
    • Be ok with not loading all your line as pointed up in the initial paragraph
    Hope that helps ~ LMB

    Use nylon backing...

    If you have already loaded the main line

    1.Spool in nylon around the same line weight to the rim.
    2. Un-spool nylon onto an empty line spool.
    3. Un-spool mainline onto another empty line spool.
    4. Spool in nylon.
    5. Join nylon with main line.
    6. Spool in mainline.

    Powerpro, can check with T2000.

    Else can consider Tuffline, quite similar at Sabre Tackles
