As to the cutting the line, I just bought a pair of super line scissors by Rapala at DSG and they work wonderfully. Partially serated on the inner half, too bad I'm not using braid anymore. They work just as good on mono.

I have a few pairs of those forceps with cutters on em, they work good, most of the time.  If not I carry a lighter, even did when I wasn't smoking.  Then as a last resort I always have a knife.

832 was selling line with a pair of scissors in the package, they worked good a few times then needed to be sharpened.

I picked up some braid last night. I got some 50lb power pro from walmart. Im gonna try it out. I did electrical tape on the spool with about a 7 foot mono backer coming off the spool. Then a 5 foot, about, leader on the front. I used the double uni to connect the lines. And a uni the tie the bait on. Anything that doesnt sound right here?

Sounds like a good rig to me.  Might want to keep an eye on the Uni Knot that you used for the leader, it might cut under heavy pressure.  Next time try an Alberto knot, or one of the knots like that.  The Uni for the lure is a good choice too.  Everything else is spot on.  If you are using mono under the braid on the spool, you don't need to put tape down, but it isn't a problem either if you do.

I did a double uni for the connection of the leader. Idk if that makes a bit of difference.

That is the only way to do a connection with a Uni, it will work, just keep an eye on it.

I use 30lb power pro on my bait caster (frog and lure rod) and learned the hard way about why to put mono on the spool as a backer. ::) Hooked a good size fish and the next thing I knew no more line left. ~roflmao ~roflmao I was just learning how to use bait casters and braid line. Won't happen again. ;D

So i didnt catch any thing today but i didnt like the ability reel faster if i need to since no stretch and easier to break the leader since there is no stretch.  Casting seemed a little better. I also liked that it didnt hold nearly as much memory.
