Braid doesn't have the shock absorbing capabilities that mono does. Braid is a great way to get more capacity out of your reel, but you still need mono as a shock leader. Plus, if you're pier fishing, it's hard if not impossible to handline a large fish up on braid. I've tried to do it, but throwing with mono is still better.
