I used to use 10lb braid on a baitcaster but i didn't like it as much as using the thicker variety due to the wind knots. 30lb braid works well but you still will get some wind knots. Personally, I prefer 40 and 50lb braid. Sure it is thicker in diameter than the thinner variety but you still get that sensitivity and it still floats. I prefer Sufix over Powerpro or TuflineXP in larger diameters. All 3 are good but after using all 3 braids a lot on a trip I actually prefer the sufix.
