Hey Wiplash,

There a lot of opinions on what line size and type to use based on several issues such as what type of conditions or cover you will be fishing. As well as how much money or time you want to put into the process of re-stringing your reels.
I'll give you my simple example of how I rig up my rods for these setups. And to be perfectly transparent, I have full access to these products so I have eliminated the cost issue, but not the time or frequency needed feel confident in my equipment.

For Vibrating Jigs and Spinner Baits: I use either 12-16# Gamma Edge Fluorocarbon, or 40# Fins Windtamer braid (sometimes with a fluoro leader). These setups are dependent on location, depth of water, clarity and cover.

Jerkbaits: 10# Gamma Edge Fluorocarbon, or 20# Braid in the grass or wood areas.

Thank you. Between fishing the Bass and Stripers in Delta and local lakes around here, Its a real pain to switch out line all the time and. Its nice to keep it basic. So you like floro over mono then huh?

For those baits 30lb braid with 10-15 feet of mono or Flo. Leader, if you will, size depends on what is around and depth. Deeper smaller, wood around heavier. But with a jerkbait not to heavy as to not kill the action. Seems to work for me.

30-40 lb braid with a 14-15 lb mono leader. You do not need floro for moving baits, plus it sinks

What's the reason you guys use any leaders for braid?

Easy to cast, no birds nests, and tough so you have very little chance of breaking off a fish. You can also see your line, when it’s cold in the fall and winter, long pauses when fishing jerkbaits is sometimes key. They hit it on the pause so if you’re fishing with braid, it floats and you can see when the fish takes your bait.

With me 1. A confidence thing clearer the water longer the leader. 2 mono will act a a “shock absorber”. 3 when I use flor it’s mainly for adding a little more depth. 4 it’s just cheaper Just what seems to work for me
