Hey guys, I have always used monofilament but I am wanting to make the switch (for the proper presentations) to braid or fluorocarbon.  What are some opinions on the best products as well as when to use each?  I like the Berkley brand, and will be using it on Berkley Lightning Shock rods.  Thanks for the help!!

I like power pro braid and seagar red label floro. They are affordable and get the job done!

I like Power Pro for braid and Yo-Zuri Hybrid which is nylon and fluoro bonded together.

Don't go cheap on braid (either if you can afford it). Sufix 832 is the way to go and just be done with it. Fluoro you can get away with going a little cheaper if you don't mind it being a little stiffer or less abrasion resistant. I've had very good luck with the Sunline Super Fluorocarbon.

There are many opinions on braid brands, so do your research 

and choose carefully because braid isn't cheap. Our opinions

here are just that, opinions. Opinions based on experiences.

Not all the same.

 

Over the years I've tried several brands and keep returning to 

regular Power Pro (yellow). That's my preference. Others don't 

like Power Pro and prefer Sufix 832, or Daiwa Samurai, etc.

 

You probably can't go wrong with any of them. And since you 

are just starting out with braid, you may stick with the first brand 

you try.

 

Also, for me, I always tie on a leader be it pure fluorocarbon or

a copoly line.

832 and power pro or power pro super slick are all solid choices. The suffix cost a couple bucks more but braid lasts for ever basically.

Call me old fashioned, but I try to avoid Braid at all costs. If i have to, I found i like power pro.

My vote goes to Suffix 832 for braid. Or if you're willing to spend a little extra, Seaguar Smackdown is really nice stuff for an extra $10. 

 

As for fluoro, I'm a fan of Sunline Sniper FC.
