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.

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

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

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

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.

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.
