I don't but I only use mono at night now. Fluoro was a hard sell for me also. After using it there was no looking back. I back the reel for flipping with mono and put 50-75 yards Fluoro on the end. I can get 3 or 4 line changes out a 250 yard spool of PLine. That saves a ton of money and for flipping you don't need a lot of line so you get the advantage of the fluoro.

No floro to mono for me. I use floro to braid & usually go down to 8 lb on a shakey head w/ 15lb braid & 14lb floro to 20lb braid for a Senko. Usually straight floro for a jig & +2 to what KP said about using backing on your reel. That will save you alot of $$$.

Braid to flouro. For me . When using jigs and jerks. Straight flourocarbon when cranking, but I will have a little backing on it to save line. I have around 30 rigged rods and none of em have mono on them. I just don't have any use for it rite now. When it warms a little I may use some for some top waters.

I only use braid for heavy cover jigs and creatures or frogs and I tie straight to the braid for those applictions. I use a good copoly, Silver Thread to be exact and it is not only super clear but it really has a lot less stretch than most monos have so I can avoid flouro all together. I did try it on a spinning reel and that did it for me, I can't even think of a spool of it on my casting rods so it is strictly braid for heavy applications and copoly for everything else and I don't care what I'm missing, I'm not fishing for 100 grand, that fact would change a lot of things!!

Joe P put me / us on the crazy Alberto knot and now I'm stoked about going braid to flouro.

THANKS JOE

Joe please share this knot with us. I would like to learn some more leader knots. I use the seaguar knot because its so easy and fast. Seems really strong too. If anyone has used this knot please share your results with me. Thanks. In reference to the seaguar knot.

i have used seaguar all winter and have yet to break one off. good knot for it to be so simple, not to mention easy to tie in a hurry on cold days

Topwater is braid or mono. Depends if its open water or frog conditions.

All of my spinnerbait/crank/jerkbait rods are full F-carbon

My jig rods are 15-20# F-carbon, when heavy cover or punching I use braid

My drop shot is F-carbon leader ( dbl uniknot) to braid

Shakey Head on my spincast is also f-carbon to braid... Braid holds up and less line

twist on the shakey head rod. Not to mention you can feel a fish fart with the f-Carbon

to Braid setup.

All of my Braid is Power Pro, Seaguar Red Label F-Carbon, Stren/Trilene for mono.

No issues with any of it!
