Buy seriously, should I be using 9 strand braid?

We had an old saying at the tackle shop.  If you have to ask why you need it, you dont.

But in all honesty, if you are wondering, give us more info.  What are planning to do with it?  Spinning, conventional?  Bottom fishing or trolling?  Species?  Beach or boat.  Rocks or sand?  Give us a bit more background so we can drill down.

I'm wondering if 9 strand will give me better abrasion resistance or less friction in the water. Is it really rounder, thinner or provide another advantage.

Where do I find 12 strand?

 

Just take 3 spools of 4 strand and make your own. Only takes a few minutes and you will catch 3 times as many fish.

I'd like to use it to cast 3oz sinners at boaters who get too close to shore. 2 strand or 12? Would you recommend a shock leader or barrel swivel? Moss green or hi vis yellow so they see it coming?
