Rod + Braid question

Recommended Posts

Pardon my ignorance. Im new to using braided lines. Is it ok to use 50lb braid if the line weight for the rod is like 15 - 30lb? I'm talking about the factory line weight that is printed on the rod.

Yes, but know that if you screw your drag down tight, that rod may or may not take the stress that the heavier braid will put on it on hooksets, hang-ups, fighting fish, etc.
