What's the ratio? And what PE rating would translate into the typical 50 lb braid I like on general purpose spinning and conventional reels for surf use?

Allowing an illegal immigrant to stay in the US with amnesty and start the legal immigration process
is like allowing a bank robber to go free and keep the money as long as he fills out a loan application.

basically just add 10 to PE and thats the equivaklent braid breakings trength.
say you have PE4, make the 4 into 40 and then add 10, so that equates to 50# braid.
again, when it says PE1, make 1 into 10 then add 10, so PE1 is 20# braid.
