I use braid with all my buzzbaits and frogs. Even finese fishing, I'll spool up my reel with braid and then attach 3 to 4 feet of fluoro. Unless you're fishing big fish that take out a lot of line from your reel from making hard runs, your guides should be fine.

Braid and mono combo is used widely out West for saltwater fishing where you need a lot of backing so that you don't get spooled. Even a 60lb tuna will rip 100 yards of braid easily at one time from your reel as it goes through the guides. During that run, that braid basically becomes very sharp and will cut through mono like hot knife on butter. I've seen a guy chase a tuna around the boat and cut off six people's line using mono. I use mostly SIC guides by Fuji and they hold up just fine to this abuse.

So, I don't think braid should be a problem.
