I found this excellent video this morning and thought of your question. So easy to use braid and a mono or FC leader when you have this knot to join them.....Anyone that uses braided mainline on feeder/ledger? Do you run straight braid down to hooklink swivel? Do do i need to just a mono leader like when dropshoting?
Braid casts light lures a long distance, provides strike sensitivity, allows me to rip a lure free of weeds, never loses its strength unlike a nicked mono, isn't affected by sunlight like mono and allows good lure action - the reason for this is its true diameter vs line test. I use 8# test braid with a diameter of 2# test mono. If I drop shotted more, I would consider using a f/c leader.straight braid
