I think the exact opposite. Haha.

I put braid on everything, kids reels included!

Braid has it's places. But I usually prefer mono as well. I love braid for fish like sheepshead where the bite is soft and they are around barnacles.

Besides thinking you could bite stranded kevlar, which, when woven, will stop a bullet, BTW, do you have any other complaints?

Braid can be a game changer in the right application.

What were you fishing for, and how?

There are only 2-3 times I hate braid:

When you're wading and need to cut it
When you're snagged on a reef/log/etc that would normally snap with mono
When you first start tying it (not really an issue, just had to change knots)

Other than that, I absolutely love it!

Solid rant. I stand with the old geezers, since I'm rapidly approaching that status. I'm grumpy, and don't care who knows it.

It's hard enough to train these young guys much less you and log. Shell our some of that Dr money and go buy some Owner Super Cut scissors for about $12. The part where you will need additional training is tying a Crazy Alberta Knot for the shock leader. Then you can go back to biting mono. Seaguar is the best as their red label has a minty flavor.

Imagine if a body had easy access to extremely sharp scissors designed to cut well when it's a life a death situation!

Solid rant. Only wrong part is the Trilene. Suffix is a better product.

An actual outdoors post that didn't say "fishing is outdoors" in the thread title.

You're NEVER suppose to bite fishing line. It's what knives are for. Look carefully at my user name before you argue.

Braided line backlashes can be epic! And more challenging to undo. A toothpick or similar item might be needed to snag the obstinate portions of the mess...

I have a chipped tooth that is proof biting mono for years is not wise.

I use braid for trolling, extra line capacity in salt water, and if I need a lot of feel on the line. If not I use mono.

If you wouldn't have waited 15 years to try it you wouldn't be so old and stuck in your ways!

Don't get me wrong, I am older and grumpier too now. I can admire a good rant with the best of them. I just don't have any issues with braid. I was never a line biter anyway. I always carry line snips on a lanyard, so when I switched to braid, I now carry the super scissors on a lanyard instead.

If the backlashes are an issue, you need to make sure you put it on the reel fairly tight when you load the spool. If you are a line biter, I can see where the inability to do so, would make you angry.

The sensitivity of braid, for me, is worth any of the other minor issues with it, from time to time. I cannot imagine going back to mono for saltwater use.

I keep a pair of these in my tackle bag that a nurse lady friend gave me a few years back, surely you can have one of your nurses nick you a set.

Sharpen up those dentures.

Might as well use a rubber band for line if going with mono.
