I use the Braid because I do a lot of line watching, not waiting for the pressure bite.

Re: Crazy cargo ship.

It's not the V shape wakes you have to worry about with the big boats or Cargo Ships. It's the perpendicular wakes that occur after it has gone by. With polarized glasses on these are really hard to see and you could be doing 30+ MPH when you hit these and you will suddenly find yourself in the air.
