I have a curado and don't know which line is better braid or monofilament line. I currently have braid on it and its ok but I would like for it to be better.

Well it kind of depends. Braid casts easier and has no memory. Mono has memory but is quiet and has stretch compared to braid. Flouro is where the to meet in the middle. Mono and braid float fluorocarbon sinks and has lower visibility. If you want just a good all around line for all situations I would go with 15lb big game mono and spray it with a line conditioner. Fill the spool to where about an 8th is showing spool still.

I use Seguar invizx. I don't think they'res a better line. I have to tie it to a boat cleat to break it and it usually straightens the hook or drags up what ever I'm hung on.

I second seguar invizx. Strong but pliable and soft feel.

Correct... But I have gotten to where I do not use fluoro very often at all. Mainly braid and mono. My luck with fluoro durability was not so good.i use a lot of Power Pro.

Sufix mono and you can forget the line conditioner.

On my baitcasters, I only use 30# PowerPro. Great line and I never have any issues.
