I gave braid a fair trial when surfcasting in the Bay of Plenty. On the whole it behaved quite well but it lacked the 'feel' of mono, especially with a reasonable fish in the back wash of the surf. The only give was in the rod, the braid was very unforgiving, and this led to the occasional pulled hook. |
In the end I followed most other surfcasters in the area, I switched back to light mono (4kg)but maintained braid as the shock leader, a decision I don't regret. Others will tell a different story regarding braid leaders, I can only write from my own experience, which has been one of success.
