Re: Mono line???
Braid does have an advantage but I prefer Ande mono for surf casting using a conventional reel. But I do have braid on a spinning reel and level bait casting reel that has a level wind feature. I will list what I don't like about braid.
1. too thin, difficult to level wind on reel with your finger during retrieve
2. is prone to wind knots.
3. hard on guide tips will cut a grove eventually
4. will bury itself into spool line.
5. impossible to untangle birds nest
