I switched over my umbrella rig rods to 150lb braided. Since Lake Lanier is full of trees it has greatly reduced the number of rigs lost. When I now catch a tree, I just tie the line to a cleat and it breaks the 50lb wire jig leader saving the $39 rig.
Plainer boards I use 20 mono line. It holds well in the snap even when I run swim baits at 2.5 mph.
