Asking the experts opinons-what are your thoughts about using higher rated braids instead of tying say, an 80 lb shock leader to your main line? The 80 lb PP is still thinner than 20 lb mono- I can deal with that. Just trying to avoid that extra knot [that I cant seem to tie right]. Thanks

shock

80 lb pp is ok if that is what you want to use. Personally I don't like the cost or it's performance in the surf. Changing mono can cost 7 or 8 bucks per reel but pp will cost you about 30-35 dollars a reel. Learn to tie a shock knot you can trust.Tie it and worry about what is bitting and not if the knot will hold. After you use a shock leader for a time you won't even know it's there.You'll get other responses supporting PP I'm sure but don't run out and buy it just because you can't tie a knot. Goodluck to you.
