Braid is very good for uptiding, at least in these parts. Ive never had a problem with it. 25 pound Works a treat, you feel every turn and dive of the fish.

You may have a problem with braid if there is big swell but 90% of the time excellent.

Oh yes you can :)

Up tiding uses the tide pressure on a bow of line to hold the weight & bait hard on the bottom. You can still get the same effect with braid, without the huge bow of line.

Sam I think things really do vary from area to area.

Most of the time we dont even fish uptide. Infact we probably get more fish downtide.

ive been told its good for deep water wrecking, and i can kind of see this as the lack of stretch could be an advantage.
