bassin is addicting

which braid? 1st time user.

Recommended Posts

just picked up MH spinning rod....all others i have are Med. looking to get a specific set up for "power" fishing

gonna put it on a new Quantum 2500 spinning reel.  i know thats not a "power" reel but its what i got.

i've never used braid before.

i've always used mono...and recently Yo-Zuri ultra soft.

i don't wanna go crazy price wise on the braid...so what low/medium priced brand and lb should i get?

also, can i use an improved clinch knot with braid.  i don't plan on using a leader.

thanks..

  I would use either Powerpro or Suffix braid. Both good contenders in the sub 20$ range. Do not use the clinch w/ braid. http://www.animatedknots.com/palomar/index.php. This knot is easy to tie, and won't slip with braid. 8-)

The Palomar works better, but if you're more comfortable with it, you can use the Improved Clinch with braid if you go twice thru the eye, followed by 7+ wraps.
