braid vs. mono diameter

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
is 40lb braid roughly the same diameter as 17lb mono? power pro was on sale for 150yrds for ten bucks so i bought some. i usualy just use mono but thought i'd try braid. the reel says it holds 240 yds of 14lb mono but i have 17 on there so i'm guessing about 200-210yds? and i was pretty sure 40lb would be the closest diameter. so how much backing of 17lb mono do i need to have a full spool? or should i use heavier backing? thanks sol

40 lb braid is thinner than 17 lb mono. I'd say it's closer to the thickness of 12 or 14 lb monofilament depending on the brand of mono you're using.
