Or its too new for guys to have an opinion... Only came out late last year!

I have seen and felt it and it seems pretty good. If you go on the Boss braid reputation, which in my opinion is very good, I would say its a solid line.

Of course, you have the option of buying a roll, testing it and then telling us how it is ;)

By all accounts, Boss braid gets good reviews ...

First there was the Skinny version (advertised at 0.23mm diam for the 50lb test), then came the Slick (advertised at 0.29mm diam for the 50lb), and now the Whisper (advertised at 0.32mm diam for the 50lb.
Google "Boss braid" and also check out their Facebook page - lots of satisfied users ...

My Gallery: 
Slick was 0.39mm actual and was 65lbs
Skinny was 0.36 actual and is 50lbs
Whisper is 0.36 actual with better weave and coating and is 50lbs

The 80lbs and up on all of them are way understated

Good Braid for it's price and I'd say the Skinny is similar in Charachteristics to Grinder as something to compare with

I've only used the really thin Whisper for Ultralite spinning and it's a value for money alternative to mant braids out there

Other than that I stick to my locally manufactured HMP braid
