Here's a question I have had but never asked.......if a chain (line) is only as strong as its weakest link (point), wouldn't a 12 lb flouro line negate the strength of the 20 lb braid down to 12lbs?

I use 50lb braid, wouldn't any flouro at a lower strength then become max pressure I can exert on line?

Thanks

I rarely use a leader with braid. I will when fishing rocks. In addition to the abrasion resistance, it also provides a break point if I'm fishing jigs or soft plastics in rocky bottoms. If my bait gets wedged between rocks beyond retrieval, I can break it off without loosing any of my braid. So the leader helps reduce my losses.

i have never had an issue with braid in rocks.  i tie straight to the lure.  yes, braid will scuff, just as any other line does, and you HAVE to look at braid, not just feel.  table rock did not get that name for nothing.  i fish in sharp rocks all the time.  now you do have to follow the rules of braid.  when hung up, do not sit there snapping your rod as you do with other types of line.  braid has no stretch and you will sure enough CUT your line into.  just pint your rod straight at the lure and reel up the slack and gently pull straight back.  this does not mean lift up on your rod.  pull straight back.  it lure does not come loose.  get straight over the lure and again point your rod straight down at the lure and lift up only pulling on the line not loading the rod up.  if this did not work, get out the lure retriever and knock it loose.  to use braid, you have to follow the rules of braid.  i went through the whole laundry list of don'ts while first using braid, but i knew how much it would improve feel and hook sets.  i have many folks sit in my boat and try to use braid, but are always cussing it until i take the time to teach them the rules of braid.  just learn the rules of braid, and it will fish in rocks, just as well as any other line.  you do still have to retie braid like any other line.  keep check on it just as you do any other line.
