One more "PRO",Macman, braids last a loooooooong time. I've had fireline on spinners for yr and have gotten over 2 yrs of use on a fillup,fish every weekend too.. Got a friend who guides in Fla.,he uses fireline also and gets at least 1 season out of a fillup,and he fishes everyday..Macman said:All braids I have used will outcast mono significantilly. However, there are pro/cons to them. Pros: Castability, zero stretch (if preferred) Cons: Tough on some reel gears if not matched properly, will cut other lines on surf and piers, will cut fingers & hands if not careful. Try it on one rig and make a call. Lotta money to drop before the jury is in. Good luck!
