the facts the way I see it yes for diameter line vers braid your getting a stronger line , agreed an accepted .
b ut now lets examine abrasion resistance this is were I believe mono is the true winner . has any one ever tested the 2 over a rock ?
braid only has to be touched over something sharp an it will fray an weaken . I'm positive mono is better .
also with braid you rely on an excellent clutch not jamming up . even the shimano xt baitrunners most use its poss the clutch could stick resulting in a badly damaged pike s mouth .
with mono if clutch failed this would not be a problem .
I think braid is perfectly suited to surface fishing with no risk of sharp rocks or whatever .
so can someone tell me how any pike can break 15 pound mono with clutch set right ,I say its impossible . an the stretch of line gives you some insurance for mistakes .
so how many of you using braid have been cut off ?
in 35 years pikeing I have never ever had a bite off with LBs. only on one occasion has my line broken over a rock in 35 years .
please provide me with evidence that I might be converted
