  1. Looking for a thin distance casting braid (20lb/30lb). I heard good stuff about samurai braid but have personally never tried it. Suffix 832 holds too much water to cast very far imo and powerpro superslick has knot slips and random breakage. The top 2 I'm considering are J Braid x8 or Berkley x9. Any other recommendations?
  2. How do yall rank your top 5 braided lines? This debate comes out time and time again but I wondered about y'all's opinion for overall castability and knot strength ignoring price. (Not including braids over $80 for 300 yards or so) The top 5 that I have tried are Suffix 832 PowerPro Original Berkley X9 Daiwa J braid (tends to get wind knots sometimes) PowerPro Superslick 8 v2 (knots tend to slip+castability decreases significantly after a couple uses) Do not like:Nomad Design, Spiderwire, BeyondBraid, Piscifun, Yo-zuri BTW, how does fireline and Diamond Braid handle?
  3. Hey yall I had some questions about backing a spool with mono before braided line. I am going to spool my 5000 penn battle 3 with 20lb braid. It says that the braid capacity for 20lb is 420 yards. I understand that usually it is okay for the amount of braid to be much less than the maximum since it is almost impossible to spool it so tightly that it can take everything. Do yall think 300yards should be enough for the penn battle 5000? And would I have to back it up with mono before?? Or should I just go with the 500 yards of braided line? I also have some leftover braid on the spool and was thinking about doing a uni-uni knot with the new 300 yards of braid just in case I would run short without it.
  4. Any Actual facts on this ? Thinnest diameter? I'm thinking samurai or daiwa j braid . Am I correct?
