Braid is so slick if you tie braid only straight to the spool the entire ball of line will slip on the spool making you think you can't tighten your drag. To put it another way the spool will remain stationary like tight drag and all your line will be twisting around the spool like a loose drag.

The mono grabs the spool to prevent this. Tie them together with a crazy Alberto knot and enjoy a properly functioning drag.

So the line doesn't slip on the spool. Braid will slip

One wrap of electrical tape is sufficient.

95% of the time when I get a backlash with mono, I could get it out by just cranking down the drag, pushing down on the backlash with my left thumbnail and reeling a few cranks.

That technique absolutely will not work on braid. You have to pick them out, and sometimes they don't come out and you have to cut.

I don't think that braid is more inherently prone to backlashes if the reel is set up and maintained properly. But I do think they are harder to get out if you do.
