Best Braided Fishing Line for Spinning Reels

Incorporating a braided setup to your spinning reels can be a game changer, no matter how often you fish, or why. Mainly because a braided fishing line is tougher yet sensitive enough to feel even the lightest touch from a fish.

Braided lines are also versatile enough to use for any species, and in any situation an angler may find themselves in.

Also, a braided line lasts for quite a long time on the reel while requiring minimal maintenance. Most are also UV resistant, abrasion and rot resistant.

In fact, using a braided line has so many advantages that I can only think of one aspect that I could call a ‘disadvantage’ – the visibility that some bright colored ones have in the water, as this can be a distraction when fishing in clear water.

Other than that, I’d recommend using it. And to help you along, I’ve compiled a list of the best braided fishing line brands for spinning reels. Enjoy.

Get Reel!

Using a braided line is a popular choice among anglers today, and anyone who’s tried it will tell you how much it’s changed the game for them. From experiencing smoother casting, to being able to reel in bigger and difficult to catch fish, a braided line is efficient on so many levels.

I enjoy the sensitivity because I can feel every tingle that goes on in the water and know with certainty what it is. One last tip I’d give you is to use a line with 50 lb or higher test rating, and try to pair it with a new reel as opposed to an old one, as combining an old reel with a new braid might give you some issues when fishing in windy conditions. Other than that, just choose a fishing line that you’re most comfortable with, and enjoy this old (but still very relevant) fisherman’s prayer:

“Lord help me to catch
a fish so large
that even I in the tell of it
never need to lie…”
