The Best Braided Fishing Line For Spinning Reels(And Why)

Fishing is a great hobby. It's a really relaxing, fun way to spend some time out in nature with friends. Plus, fishing yields the opportunity to catch some fresh seafood too! However, some fishermen like myself prefer using spinning reels over baitcasting reels and round reels. This is because it allows us to fish more stealthily. The downside of this is that it also requires you to use braided line instead of monofilament line. So what are the best braided lines for spinning reels?

What are the Different Types of Fishing Line?

In general, there are three fishing lines in the market, monofilament, fluorocarbon, and braided fishing lines.

Monofilament Fishing Line

Generally a single-strand line. Let’s talk about the advantages first. The technology of mono line is very mature, so it is the cheapest among the three types of fishing lines. Mono line has a certain stretch, it is not easy to break when casting and fishing, and because of its smooth surface, it is a fishing line with the lightest wear on the guide ring after long-term use. However, the disadvantages are also very obvious. It also because of its stretch, when the fish to be caught, the signal will not be transmitted immediately which will affect the casting distance. have a certain impact.

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

Fluorocarbon line, is normally used as a leader in lure fishing. It is extremely difficult to elongate in daily use, and the tensile force loss after absorbing water is very small. The fluorocarbon line also has the characteristics of strong UV resistance, strong acid resistance, strong alkali resistance, etc. Its refractive index is close to that of water, so it is not easy to be detected by fish. The biggest disadvantage is that it is expensive.

Braided Fishing Line

PE line refers to the fishing line made of multi-strand chemical fiber woven and then dipped, commonly known as braided fishing line.

The advantage of this line is that the diameter of the line is much thinner than that of mono under the same tension. , the PE line is significantly thinner, and the impact is that it has less wind resistance when casting, so the casting distance will also increase accordingly.

Another feature of the PE line is that because it has no stretch, it can transmit the signal to the hand immediately at the moment when the fish bites and pulls. Finally, braided fishing line is very cost-effective because of its wear resistance.

Why is Braided Fishing Line Important?

  • First, it cast a longer distance. When using the same rod and reel for all throws,The distance between the line sizes did make a slight difference but the braided line was always further.
  • The next reason is that it is much stronger than mono and fluoro¬†(compare to¬†the same diameter).20 lb braided line is the same thickness as 6 lb mono so you can get away with catching bigger fish.
  • The third reason is that it is more sensitive than mono and fluoro and has no stretch.
  • The last reason it that braid fishing line suitable for more lines on your reels.

What color braided fishing line to use?

The color of braided fishing line may have an impact on fishing.
  1. Choose the colors similar to the surrounding environment. such as some camouflage colors, hi-vis green or dark green.
  2. If you don't want it to contaminate your fingers, you can try to use white, but after a period of time, white will be washed by water again. Or the dirt in the water is stained with other colors
