The two basic thing you have to understand about braid is that first of all, braid does not stretch and therefore very little give when you are playing your fish and therefore you need to remember that. Secondly braid does have a much thinner diameter than mono-filament lines which is great because it helps to cut through the water much more efficiently and therefore least resistance. This gives you extra sensitivity when BBing and less drag when bar fishing means that you need less weight at the business end. Braided lines can also do a number on your rod and guides if you are not careful because they are very abrassive, unlike mono-filament. So the answer to your question is that there really isnt a best line but more so what you prefer to go with, knowing the pros and cons of these types of lines. Hope this helps.

Because the line cuts through the water more efficiently due to its thin diameter, there is less drag due to water resistance, and therefore when bar fishing, the currently doesnt push your terminal gear as much and therefore you need less weight to keep it in place which is a good thing when playing a fish with less weight swing around. As for the part about doing a number on your rod and guides, braided lines have a tendency to wear your guides more readily. If you cast and somehow have the braided line wrapped around your rod, it can actually score the rod which is not great for your rod, especially if it is an expensive one like a sage or a GLoomis. Personally I like the braid when bottom bouncing because you can feel every little bit of the river bottom and the hit is much more amplified because as I said, there is no stretch.

Fishing line is like vehicles. What I like to use you might not work for you. Go grab yourself one type of your spiderwire and giver a shot. If it casts nice and you like using the stuff then stick with it. If you think it's garbage then try again. Eventually you'll find one you like and that will be your go to stuff. I've always used mono. It hasn't done me wrong so I haven't tried anything elce. Just my two cents.

Just get this http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/5/SportsRec/Fishing/FishingLine/PRD~0773003P/Berkley+NanoFil+Fishing+Line.jsp?locale=en
Or go to a canadiantire and they have a whole booklet that tells u what each line is good for.
Don't bother with colour at this point since you will be tying a "leader" which is a length of fluorocarbon or mono line to your braid. Or get green if u wanna go direct to hook.
BTW u can edit your posts to include additional questions or even do a search as this subject has been discussed before.
And if u r trying to get to 50 posts to access the fishing reports, don't bother, it won't give you any special magic info on where the fish are.
