Hey there, I have been using power-pro 30lb braid on my lexa 300 as my up river-gut gear for 2 seasons now and can confirm it is excellent to use. I have tried the fancy expensive braids as both river and surf gear, on both lexa 300 and 400 and will say that, in my humble opinion, that the braid is excellent on the river gear, but can be a real handful on my surf gear. I use a mono leader, with a very simple joining knot that I got from maybe tonight charters website. Very quick, very easy and strong when tied right. Overall, power-pro 30 in the river and suffix elite 10kg in the surf. Mega distance without the hassles. Cheers
