Hi fat caff

I wouldnt worry too much about bs as lures of that size wont snap it and the diameter wont make any difference either in my opinion.

There will be a difference in casting distance between mono and braid and you will always get further with braid, however you will also suffer wind knots with braid from time to time.

For snag free waters you can use lighter braid, helps you cast further and it just feels better. However as Noodle says, heavier braid if you want to get the lures back from snaggy swims. I use 80lb braid. Overkill as far as getting fish out of course but for getting my expensive lures back it's a must!
