i should have mentioned i use spinning gear exclusively, which nanofil is designed for...my understanding is it might not be great for baitcasters...but it is the best for spinning!

fins 40G is the best bet. about half the diameter of comparable braid but twice the strength. My spinners are filled with the 15lb and had a baitcaster I used for bull reds with the 45LB on there. Literally pulled a 35" Red 3' out of the water and another 4' over the guard rail (with gloves on) and did not break. Palomar knot, no leader. Line is so strong you have to be careful when getting snagged or hooked into a monster bc your rod will def break before the line ever does. Only thing i didn't like was it liked to loosen up a lot on my bait caster and make some birds nests. Spinning gear has zero issues though.

have you tried nanofil and how do the two lines compare? nanofil is the best i've found so far, but i'm always looking for even better!

braid specs

In other words, what does it mean on the box when it says a lb test???

p.s. If you can't tell, I'm a long time fisherman that has not ever used braid - only mono and flouro. But getting interested in Braid for everything but flipping in freshwater for bass (want to use for surf rods and possibly in the bay for trout and reds)..
20lb braid sizes will break at or above 20 lbs but have a mono equivalent of about 6lb size. I personally use a braid that is sized similar to the mono size a was using... or: FINS 30 or 40lb Windtamer or PRT will be approx .011" - .012" or 10-12lb mono size.
