Start with a braid easy on the wallet like Daiwa J Braid, Power Pro or Sufix, if you like it and get the hang of using it maybe upgrade to Daiwa Samurai.

Best is subjective. However, PowerPro is very popular. That is the one I use. What type of application, rod/reel set up, etc. are you looking to start with? Typically, 10#-30# braid on spinning gear. 30#-80# for bait casters. Below is a comparison of diameters.

I would suggest 20# is a good starting size for spinning and 40-50# for bait casting.
