Do any of you guys still use mono?

THe only reels that currently have mono are my ul freshwater outfits, mainly trout. Everything else has braid and I can't ever see myself using mono on any of those again.

Any rods I have set up for bottom fishing all have mono (sort of). I use Yo Zuri Hybrid for all bottom fishing from shore. I use about 100 to 150 yard top shot of Yo Zuri for the excellent abrasion resistance and then back it all with 30lb power pro so I have quite a bit of running room. If the fish runs off the top shot (which will happen quite often), it's usually far enough out so I don't have to worry about the braid catching on any rocks.

Yes I do 14# stren :)

I've got a bunch of older reels and have tried PP 30# and at some point had a lot of trouble. I've just loaded some reels with 20# fireline and haven't had any problems so far.

I've been using the 30# PP on my conventionals drifting fluke or fishing the reef . :th:
