    Braid Vs Mono

    All still keen on Braid rather than Mono or two bob each way ??.
    I find Fishing Deep for grunter i prefer the Mono as well as feeeding line out for LIpper or Mackeral.
    Reds might be a different story n braid seems more preferable ey.

    I am running Seaguar Tatsu 16lb FC on two of my bait rods purely because winter water is so damn clear in SEQ.
    Of all of the FC's I have seen and read about it is a soft almost memory free FC that behaves like a high end mono but has the almost invisible underwater characteristics of FC. It makes a fair bit of difference in the extra clear water I think.
    If you want to try the Tatsu be prepared to open your wallet a fair bit more.

    Iím a fairly simple fisho. If I am bait fishing then itís a Alvey and mono. If I am lure fishing with spinning reel or bait caster then itís braid.

    One of the great uses for braid is the feeding of line out into a cube trail - You can certainly feed out a lot more braid than you can with mono. Awesome when a current is running . I've seen mates using twice as much lead when using mono compared against braid because of the added drag.
    Bite sensitivity is unparalleled with braid & the ability to set hooks .

    I'll concede that keeping hooks in is better with mono though ........ but that can be overcome with your choice of rod .

    I actually wished that braid was around back in my rock fishing days

    I only use braid on two setups, over time I have changed back to mono for everything, by the way, Flurocarbon is not invisible underwater, I have experimented with colours and FC, even posted about it here long ago, itís all marketing hype.
