playinhooky I do half the spool in mono, cause braid is much more expensive, and it doesn't take as long to get the braid packed in tight. My buddy does the full spool with tape method and when the exposed portion starts getting fuzzy back spools onto another reel with a mono backing.

just plain bill yup! and i throw from directly overhand. might get a tangle once in 2000 casts, usually from casting into the wind. and nanofil untangles faster than anything.

Gofish2day A spinning reel is more forgiving with braid. Just saying. I can't throw a bait caster to save my life

JimD I went to braid when it came out and have run thru a lot of the problems.

I went to 30 from 20 lb line, Braid has to be put on the spool very tightly (helps the line not dig into the spool when a good fish is on)

First thing to do is go throw your different baits and learn where the spool tension knob likes to be with that bait ( If not the spool over runs the bait and guess what you can get)

If you are an old guy before all the fancy knobs you learned to use your thumb to control the spool when casting. It still works.

Never throw into the wind till you have the above correct otherwise lol

Never hit your rod on a cast a one of a kind backlash is guaranteed.

I used to throw old greenies but went to the expensive lews and I do not have many problems if the spool control is set for that bait and the line wound tightly on the reel. Check your line every once in a while to see if you have a loose wrap from long throws that can build up and cause problems.

When you do clean up a back lash be careful where the line is when you pull the line out OR you can have a worse problem when trying to wind the line back on the reel. Be safe and have fun. Jim

dk2429 I’ll never use anything but braid anymore, but man that stuff ties knots by itself that I didn’t even know were possible to tie

Ryan H. I agree, I resisted switching, and took a bit to get used to, but now I won't go back, Mono or rather flouro, is for leaders.

c hook

braid takes some getting used to, the backlashes can be harder to get out, but with practice it's not bad. Once you learn to fish braid, there's absolutely no going back to mono. Braid is far superior, much farther cast, much stronger, and fish set the hook when they hit, so no more short strikes. Spool up a reel, and practice casting at a pond for a while, prior to going fishing.

Cut it in half and you have two. They come in handy.

claydeaux96 Braid Backlash untangle is easy with a black pocket comb.. use the fat tooth on comb end to dig it out.. works every time. I have carried 2 in my bag for years.. works on mono also.

hurricane matt I have had weird things happen with braided line, nasty tangles that had to be cut out , unexpected line breakage, lures break off while casting etc. Berkeley trilene works just fine for me.
