    I want to put braid on my 545 and jig master and was wondering what braid I should buy? Is it hard to load or should I just have it done? I have 50lb braid with a 35 lb top shot on my Avet SX but not sure what kind, it was done at Hyuns. Any recommendations for the other 2 reels?

    I would go with Jerry Brown or Izorline braid. You'll want to load it very tight with a line winding machine. If you don't have one, have it done.

    Eric's Tackle in Ventura will be able to set you up. He has both brands.

    Not really, the fish never see it since you'll have a topshot in front of it. I just use white.

    Another for Jerry Brown. It is the best line that I have ever used.
