    Alot of my friends say that theres no need for braided line, they use super mono line, me i like to use braid i think that its a very effective line to use when catfishing do you agree or disagree?

    Chris its a matter of preference. A lot depends on where you fish.Braid has no stretch and provides a good hook set. Mono has some stretch and provides some flex when needed. Also the line capacity of the reels you use vs the amount of line you need. Good luck on your decision. Both lines have their place.
