    Hi All just joined hope this is not a stupid question.
    Would it be possible to use 40lb braid without a shock leader 4 oz lead as the braid is thinner than mono thinking of using it Thanks 🙂

    Hi Tomo. It does get lonely here I noticed.

    Anyhoo,the 40lb braid? What sort of fishing is it? I used to use some 50 lb braid conger fishing but it was mostly short distance casting and not a loaded pendulum cast. If its flicking a light 4oz lead a short distance on a sandy beach then it should be fine.The trouble with braid though is it tends to be less abrasion resistant than mono – so it’s not good for rocky beaches.
