I think I throw mine on 15-20# mono
I throw a buzz frog on heavy braid. I usually pick this up when it gets heavier or over heavy stuff.
Whatever works for you tho bro

I like mono for buzzbaits. I think the braid would be too quick if you know what I mean. Plus if I'm throwing over wood, I think braid digs into the wood. Since the line should not be in the water when retrieving a buzzbait, I would go as heavy as you want. I would start at 17 lbs and go up from there, whatever you feel comfortable casting.
I've used 17# mono for years on 7' MHF rod with no problems. It's hard to cast it beyond a solid hookset which I did a lot using 12# - 14# mono. I want a little stretch when a bass hits it. A lot of my buddies swear by braid, but they are throwing in areas that I don't even consider. I think they also go through 2-3X more buzzbaits than I do - getting snagged or just plain straightening out the buzzbait itself. I prefer to work buzzbaits parallel to weeds or cover. If the cover is too thick, I prefer a hollow-belly frog or Rage Shad on braid.

You could do a couple of things to help the ratio. Try out different single tail trailers that aren't long, add a trailer hook, or stop huntin' dinks
