Braid is so slick if you tie braid only straight to the spool the entire ball of line will slip on the spool making you think you can't tighten your drag. To put it another way the spool will remain stationary like tight drag and all your line will be twisting around the spool like a loose drag.

The mono grabs the spool to prevent this. Tie them together with a crazy Alberto knot and enjoy a properly functioning drag.

So the line doesn't slip on the spool. Braid will slip

One wrap of electrical tape is sufficient.

95% of the time when I get a backlash with mono, I could get it out by just cranking down the drag, pushing down on the backlash with my left thumbnail and reeling a few cranks.

That technique absolutely will not work on braid. You have to pick them out, and sometimes they don't come out and you have to cut.

I don't think that braid is more inherently prone to backlashes if the reel is set up and maintained properly. But I do think they are harder to get out if you do.

I don't know if braid tangles or back lashes easier, but it is much harder to untangle.

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.

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.

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

tarpon ??

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.
