I'm a high visibility braid user myself, but not for the technique(s) mentioned. I'm also a braid to fluoro leader user as well. I don't use the hi visibility braid for bite detection however. I use it as a bite direction indicator. Meaning, I like it because it tells me the direction the bass is going after its taken my lure. If your having challenges "feeling" the bite, depending on the situation, you won't "see" the bite on hi visibility braids/lines either. My recommendation would be working on staying "connected" to your lure from the time you cast it, til the time its out of the water for the next cast. Having slack line on the baits fall is important, but too much slack line can lead to missed opportunities. Besides "feeling" for that tell tale "tick" or "thump", observing sink rate changes, and subtle changes in line direction, are skills that will be picked up with more time on the water.
