Braided Fishing Lines Fireline, Power Pro, Suffix and more

You can buy a pretty good spinning reel for the price of a premium fishing braid, but in general you get what you pay for!  The quality of braid differs quite a lot between manufacturers but in general there are two types of braid:

4 carrier braid and 8 carrier braid.

In general the 8 carrier braid is usually more supple and abrasion resistent. Also because it is rounder, you can tie better knots. If you need to be able to cast quite far then you will notice the difference between an 8 and 4 carrier braid. 

Some people find the 8 carrier braids a bit problematic in the lighter weights (ie 4lbs) as it is easier to get a wind knot as they are so supple.

In general though, if you can afford it you'l definetely see the benefits of using an 8 carrier braid.

Some of the braids that are our favourites are the Sufix 832, Shimano Kairiki, and the Fireline Ultra 8 from Berkely.
