Is braided fishing line a good choice for you?

While braided line is not without its disadvantages there are plenty of reasons why you might choose braided line for yourself. But first, just what is braided line?

Braided line is made of woven fibers of nylon, Dacron or other synthetics like Spectra, which is extremely strong and has very low stretch. Braided line offers greater strength at much smaller diameters compared to mono or fluorocarbon line. For example, 130 pound Spectra has the same diameter as 30 pound nylon mono line. This enables you to load more line on to a given reel without increasing its overall weight. In addition to its strength, braid offers excellent abrasion and UV resistance. Finally, its low stretch enables you to more easily sense nibbles and bites and makes for more solid hook sets.

So what are the disadvantages of braided line? First, it is very slippery, so knots tied with it are more prone to slipping. Second, while you can mitigate this disadvantage with fishing knots that work well for braided line, you will still be left with its final disadvantage—which is its high price. Do braid’s advantages outweigh its higher price? The decision is up to you.
