    Which brand of braid do you like best? I have been using three different brands and one is worn and frayed in some spots, kind of scary and makes you wonder about the strength of the braid, and quality.

    What pound line you looking for? Reason is some people like different lines for different weights. I only use braid on heavy stuff so my favorite is Jerry Brown.

    I'm using power pro for 40lb test.
    I can't find a difference between Jerry brown, and Izor for my heavier lines.

    I have been using Cortland Braided Dacron, Green spot & black for many years for jigging Cod, Flounder and Trolling. have used the white color for freshwater bait casting. Wish it were more affordable but its way better than mono for conventional reels. I do use Mono for spinning reels. Always have a mono shock leader on it. It takes a while to learn to cast a surfcaster with braided dacron but something like a Penn Squidder works well. Would like to find a Avery Reel somewhere cheap and try that out.
