Braid?

Thanks Al for responding so quickly! I just wanted to know what are your opinions with the use of braided line like power pro #50 with the GSB 150 2MH? I hear that braid line could easily brake a graphite blank. I paid a lot for this blank and I would hate to break it. What do you think?

SJ,

 

Oz is correct. Not only is drag setting important, just as important is how the rod is positioned when fighting a fish.

 

I have seen too many rods broken by fishermen who "top stick" a rod when fighting a fish that results in a broken rod. Another point to remember is to keep your hooks razor sharp and not strike as hard since the line has no stretch.
