Austin, it's not that particular line causing that (FINS is great line!!), it's because the line has sort of dug into itself after a hookset, or hang up on grass or shell, etc. The line is buried into the loosely would coils on the reel and during the next cast it will seem to hang or hesitate. You can solve this two ways: try using a larger dia braid (10-12 lb equiv to mono = 30-40-50 lb FINS) and try to reel in back keeping the line smooth and tight as possible, preventing small gaps where the line can dig in. After every hook set or hangup, make a short "cleansing cast" to clear this before a full power cast next time. Good luck.

That's pretty much the only thing I could think of..thanks for the input.

Tackle Town in Rockport has Fins Windtamer in any color and any size.
They have in large spools and will fill your reel. They also carry normal size spools so that you can spool your own reel.

I have fished FINS Windtamer for my last few trips. It is not head and shoulders better than my powerpro but it does seem to handle wind a little better with less backlash

I got mine from POC rod & gun in Port O Conner Texas

Fins Windtamer 30# was my first braid a few years ago and I still have it on one of my main reels. It has lasted well, performed well, and is still going strong. I have reversed it on the spool to use the other end for a while...

My other go-to reels now have Suffix 832, an 8-strand braid. I think it is smoother and quieter and would recommend you go that route. I don't think it really matters that much if it's Fins, Suffix, or Power Pro as long it's one of the new 8-strands.

Good advice on line diameter in the other posts - don't go too small...
