Most of my reels have 65lb power pro braid and I'm using 40lb Fluorocarbon leader about 5' long. I noticed the just from the weight sliding up and down on the braid is getting pretty scuffed up. I have 40lb mono on a different reel and it seems to be holding up better. I'm thinking of ditching the braid and maybe going with 50lb mono on my Avet LX , is 50lb Line ok on that size reel or could I go to 60lb mono? I'm looking for something to horse those amberjack up out of the structure before they break me off
