Hi guys. Newby alert 😂.
Was thinking about going down the braid route. Would appreciate any info about the pro's and cons. TIA

Welcome Very Happy          Float fishing and drifter fishing Excellent.   Ledgering on a clear bottom =  brilliant bite detection and super strong.  Rocky shores or zebra mussels, very poor abrasion resistance and cuts easier than mono or flouro.   Lure fishing perfect for braid too.   More plus then minus points for braid by far in my opinion Wink

braid all the way any day mate. there is no contest in my book. been using it around 15 years now and it works out cheaper than mono in the long run. plus cos i use flouro yellow i can see the bloody stuff! and so can the swans! Very Happy

just an opinion , don't go for your regular breaking strain as your old mono
I use 50lb min on the ledger rods / deadbaiting

80lblb plus on the lure and its power pro for me all the way, a bit expensive but well worth it Very Happy
