just a thought for you,
I deal with the international tripping Lure fisherman a lot. now one thing in comon is that they all tend to use braid, this they say is the key to distance.
1 it is a lot thinner so has less wind resistance when in filght
2 it does not have the memory of mono so comes off the reel clean this means it runs through the guides with the least resistance.
3 you can use a smaller reel as you can pack more on, a smaller reel tends to cast better.
there is a thought for you
