    Yeah another, LOL

    As far as regularly priced braids go who do you feel makes the thinnest in 30 or 40lb??

    And same question for fluro?

    Trying to pack as much as possible on a small reel, any input is apreciated!

    Earlier on the board they were discussing Diawa braid which brought up the break strength ?? Seems all are not the same. I use Western Filaments 40# hollow as a base and it lays reel flat, its thin and very smooth.
    Just search on the various spectra/flouro makers websites and the diamaters will be listed.
    Next chance I get I'm gonna try running some break tests on braid on the machine @ Izors

    For Braid I'd go with momoi or suffix, for Flouro I've been using Yozuri hybrid with a ton of success. I have Hybrid 25# on two of my inshore reels and have used it on numerous cod/striper/bluefish/fluke trips and it has yet to fail me.
