I am just curious as to what the majority of anglers are using out there, Braided or mono. I just recently made the switch on one of my baitcasters to Berkley Fireline. To be honest with you, I think the jury is still out on this one. On one hand, the knot strength is unmatched by Mono. But so far I have to say that I got much longer casts using mono line. Also, I am a bit worried that the braided line will end up destroying the guides on my rod, it feels like you are running guitar wire through the guides. I am hoping this is only because the line has very little use so far. Look forward to hearing the responses.
