What types of braid do you use?

Here is a video talking about the different types of braid I use, what I use them for, the breaking strains and my reasons why. I hope this helps folks starting out. What’s your thoughts?

Any recommendations for braid for shore fishing? Mostly clean ground with the occasional trip to a mixed ground mark or two.

Cheers, ;-)

I use the agepoch in green but next time might go white or something brighter. Hard to see in the dark.
