Mono or braid: pros and cons
How many discussions on this topic on fishing forums, websites, etc. In this article, I clearly and in detail try to describe the pros and cons of braids and lines and we will choose which is better-mono or braid?
First, braid is absolutely inextensible, shows even the most sluggish fish to bite and the fishing line can take up to 10% of its length! Of course, manufacturers of feeder lines not standing still and constantly evolving, but still, the difference is palpable. If you catch at a distance greater than 50 meters, then use the fishing line makes no sense, but if fishing occurs at a distance of 30 m or less from shore, the line of nothing worse than braids. Also, when cutting with a network you need only to lift the rod from the rack, and with fishing line to make a sweeping cutting.
But as fishing line tensile, therefore, it will give excellent shock absorption when playing a fish (especially a large). As you do not beat, with a network you will never get the same effect even when properly configured clutch. So if you catch large fish (such as carp), we only use monofilament fishing line.
Braid of the same diameter fishing line tight it in 3-4 times is a fact. When fishing in stagnant water or no difference, but when fishing for thick lines will be very parasite therefore it is better to use braid as it is thinner and breaking load are the same.
Twist loves to collect garbage, and all sorts of musolini will score you a Tulip every 5 minutes if you catch dirty at the bottom. But if you don’t notice the garbage in the Tulip, can break the ring and the tip. So it is advantageous to use the line.
If you catch on the feeder in winter, the braided line is covered with a crust of ice, and the ice can easily damage a ring. So definitely only fishing line in the winter.
Also braid fishing line is more expensive in 3 times, but you can suffice braided fishing line for 4 seasons, and fishing line, alas, a maximum of 2.
So, to sum up, mono or braid:
- Catch at distances >50 m — network;
- Catch a big fish fishing line;
- Catch over the network;
- Catch on the contaminated bottom — line;
- Winter catch — fishing line;
- Want to buy once and for a long time, twist.
As you can see, under different conditions of fishing it is necessary to use different types of woods.
