i use the 30lb braid and ive had no problems other than the line snapping as i stated in the begining. ive casted as hard and as far as i could and i have no tangle problems. im thinking perhaps its the brand you use? or did you fill the spool all the way to the outer edge?
ever since i started using braided not too long ago, ive become accustomed to the sensitivity and would not want to go back to mono. i still have mono on my other reels because i havent had time to switch them over. i just used a mono reel the other day and i can see how much a difference the braided makes. mono = mushy. but as others said before... everyone has their own personal preference.
