15 lb braid shouldn't break.  When it does on the hookset, I suspect the culprit is a snap hookset.  An instantaneous snap on a lure tied with a Palomar knot will break braid up to 20 lb test.  If it breaks during the fight, I suspect the fish ran it across rocks or something sharp.

your best choice would be a good fluorocarbon line . i like to throw bigger worms on a shakey head rig so i can cast them on a baitcaster , so i use 10 lb. flouro . as for the hook set , i use only Owner hooks (Owner ultra head rigs) so i have confidence that when i do a light hook set that i will button the fish , i stay away from hard hook sets , to me , it is not needed ...  ;)

Ditto

I use the Tru Tungsten shakey heads and a light hook set gets the job done nicely.
