Good Video Tex. I learned some things I didn't know about the braided line.
Thanks for posting this.
I'm thinking......

I learned to cast with Dacron braid on my green Shakespeare reel in the late 50ís.  It soon disappeared and monofilament was all one could find.  We thought mono was a wonderful product.

I use a lot of braid now.  65 pound test in the spring for umbrella rigs.  On the light end is 10/2 braid to flatline troll for walleye.  200 feet of line out and I can hit 21 foot or better with the right lure.  We think braid is a wonderful product. ;D ;D

Nine out of ten trees recommend wood for your building project.
