Braided line debate

I wanted to start a friendly little debate on what is the best braided fishing line out there for inshore fishing. What do you use, bait caster or spinning reel, what line test, how long have you used it, and why is it the best. Everyone is invited so let's hear it!!!!

KastKing braided line. All are great lines. Not expensive like the name brands but better in my opinion. I use braid on all my bait and spin casters and have one bait caster with floro. I have been using KastKing products for about 3 years now and all their stuff is good quality at affordable prices.

20lb suffix 832 for about the last 6-7 years on all my casters except the two I use exclusively for top waters then I like to use a 12lb mono. For me the hook up is better on top waters if there is just a bit of stretch in the line and I like the lure action better.

30 lb Power Pro Slick 8. I've used Suffix and Fins, both in 30, and prefer how the PP casts. That being said, I have 12 lb mono on most of my reels, I guess when you''ve been using mono for 40 years, it just feels right.

I stick with my 10-12 pound mono. When i did use braid i always had crappy luck with backlashes being a SUPER PAIN. Hard enough with mono to get out those birds nest lol. To each his own i personally.

10 lb Spiderwire Ultracast Invisibraid on my spinning reels
20 lb Spiderwire Ultracast Invisibraid on my baitcasters
Seaguar STS 25 lb Flurocarbon leaders on everything

I don't know that it's the best by any stretch, but it's been working great for me for about a year now.

Wow. It seems like no one uses the same thing. I use 20 lb. fins windtamer (green) on all my baitcasters. Ive used it for about 3 years now. It seems like i get farther caster and less birds nests than power pro.

Oh, forgot I use a different setup for my wife.

10 lb Fins Windtamer Pink on her spinning reels
20 lb Fins Windtamer Pink on her baitcaster
Seaguar STS 25 lb Flurocarbon leaders on everything

Pretty sure she's never actually used the baitcaster, but the spinning reel setup is working like a champ. I don't find I have any wind knots with either of our setups. I think that's a product of shimming the spools properly and not the line itself.
