How’d it work for you? I’m mainly thinking of how likely really light braid is to backlash, and braid backlashes are such a pain.

20 in saltwater. Kept breaking it so went to 30. Throw 30 on all my saltwater setups minus the topwater rod. Throw mono on that one. The 30 does get wind knots in it but I change after a few trips like I do with flouro in fresh water.

I stick with 30 for normal work, and go with 65 for the heavy grass and cover

I have 20lb power pro on a baitcaster but would stick to 30 or 40lb. 65lb for your flipping and big swimbait rods

#30 on all my baitcasters.
Our local Acadamy is now carrying the Gliss line.
Really like that stuff.
Have it on four of my baitcasters and as soon as the Power Pro braid is ready
to change out on the others I will go with the Gliss.

20# Suffix 832 for saltwater. You can cast a 1/16oz jig head a half mile. A corky would allow you to throw most the line of fishing the spool. I only put about 10 wraps around the spool of backing and was able to cast almost to the backing.

Man that Gliss stuff is worse than Nano-slip aka Nanofil. It would break for no reason. Glad you had luck with it I could not. Reviews on TW on the stuff suggest I am by far not the only one who has had it break on a cast or hook set, or sometimes just start falling apart for no particular reason.

I am using some 15lb Power Pro Slick braid for a rig that I throw finesse worms and senkos and flukes.
