        on spin cast it works OK but on a baitcaster I do not like it. Seems like I get more bird nests from it and sometime you will get a nest in which you have to cut the line off. I have Spiderwire on my spincast and I do not have troubles with it.

          I personally hate braid. I don't have that exact kind but i have some supposedly good stuff, but it fray when you cut it and is much harder to tie knots with than mono.

            I have never used their EZ Braid but I used to use Spiderwire's braid one rung up from that. I prefer Power Pro.

            Regardless, I love braid. Tie a Palomar knot and you will have no issues. I wouldn't fish it on a spincast but spinning or baitcasting reels are fine. Don't fish an in-line spinner with it because it will get wicked twisted and braid twists are hard to get out. Also, braid backlashes deeper than mono or fluoro, thats just life, all you can do is get better with a baitcaster. I now get smaller backlashes with braid than with mono so it is quicker to pick out.

              I just tested it out today it works great, and as far as the twist goes, i just use ball bearing swivels with my in-line spinners, so far it works as good as my fireline

                Truthfully, most fishing you can get by with flourocarbon. Most situations braid is overkill. Not to mention floro is ALOT more sensitive.

                  Not a big fan at all. If you're bank fishing by people using mono and you get tangled it's a nightmare. When were ice fishing it freezes and leaves a nice little clump. In my opinion you can't feel bites near as well and the stretch of mono has some perks unless you're ice fishing in depths greater than 60 feet and then the mono is harder to decipher bites because of the stretch.
