I still use McCoys Mean Green for smaller diameter line than mono. I have tried cranking with braid, but dislike it because of the feel I was getting. McCoys 14 is like most 12s so it is a btter fit for me. Maybe just me, but I prefer what I get because of the low memory, high abrasion resistance and a good amount of stretch. If you DO crank with braid, I would back up on my drag so a 3 #er can pull some, that way you won't rip the hooks out. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
