Wouldn't it snap easier as it's not as abrasive resistant as mono?

never tried it , but dont see why not. I fish for bass in the menai strait and it's rocky and snaggy ass hell and i have switched from 30lb mono to 20lb braid (straight through) and i hardly lose any gear now, and i used to lose loads before. I find braid so much better for getting gear back through snags it's unreal

even when using braid its normal to use mono as a rubbing leader :victory: braid can snap if rubbed against anything sharp where mono may just fray.

used to use braid leaders carpfishing a few lakes in france took care of some serious lilly pads never lost a fish wear as others useing mono were looseing a good 90% of there hooked fish and yes it will work off the beach a clean beach would suit it best give it a try if your woried about snaping out on the cast try it when there aint no one about you might just be suprised:victory::victory::victory::victory::victory:

I personally would not use it (not that I have tried it) as there is no give in during casting, especially if your power casting. Also like others have said it would rub and fray over rock marks which could cause you to lose fish. :cry:

I would also imagine if you use it on a fixed spool it would potentially take the tip of your index finger off if you don't use a finger guard... :doh:

But that's just my thoughts.... :bye1:
