    If my spinning rod is rated at PE 8-12 whats the min. PE I can go with? Would it be ok If I use 65 lbs braid? Any cons?

    That line rating is a guide to the recommended PE line. What application are you using this rod for? That's the real question dude. If I remember, you're targeting GTs. I would use heavier line, heavy leader, and heavy drag to pull them out of the rocks and reefs, assuming your reel can handle it as well.
