What brand are you using for finesse 10-12 pound braid? Normally use Power Pro but was a thinking about trying the Daiwa J Braid or the Spro Finesse Braid.

It’s pricey but the Seagur smackdown is awesome.

Was pricey but I ended up with the smack down. 15% off with TW helped the wallet a little bit lol

The Seagur is the best. In the long run when you’re on the water it’s worth it.

I've been using yellow Sunline SX1 for spinning rods the last couple years. It'll throw a wind knot on you if you're not careful, but it casts great and I haven't had the line or an FG knot to 8-10 lb Seaguar Invizx break yet.

I’ve been using the Daiwa J braid line on my Tatula spinning reels and not had a problem.
The Berkley line is pretty good also.

Do yourself a favor and use a 8 strand on a that spinner, way smoother casting imo

Castking from amazon has done well for me.. i use the 6 and 8 (allot), and i even flip ends when it gets well used. Beware the dern wind knot..

I use P-Line TC-8. It’s Teflon Coated. So smooth and casts a mile.

Same, but Low-Vis Green.

Tried pretty dang near everything that comes on the market that's supposed to be the latest and greatest. Come the end of the day, I find Power Pro or Suffix 832 to be about as good as any and better than some.
