Braid for carp fishing?

Recommended Posts

Power Pro 65 lb.- no stretch but not as abrasive resistant as mono. My hair is a braid of about 10 lb. if I recall.

I would say that depends where you are fishing and what size fish you are targeting...     A big river with lots of debris and structure would be a place I would use braid. Also, if the potential to land a big fish ( 25-30lbs) is present, I would go with braid too.   If you are fishing "clean" lakes or ponds for medium size fish, mono is good. Also, in the cold weather Braid does freeze up faster than mono so be aware of that too.     Just my opinion.....

20lb mono main line with 30lb braid hook link. I fish it in all kinds of situations. After about 50 fish caught the mono gets worn and stripped, time to change it, time on the spool plays a role too as it sits in the sun and through different weather. Braid doesn't get weathered as fast as mono.
