Hey guys, Cuda here... Do conventional reels need mono backing for braid? I'm using it for surf fishing...

I used to spool 1/2 mono and then other half PP. Now I just spool all mono. Cheaper and I trust mono more.

You need something under the braid to keep it from spinning on the spool. Some use tape others (like me) use a some mono. Some spools have a pin to tie your line off to, not sure how that would work with braid.
I have switched most everything except my trolling rigs to braid. It is hard on guides and reels if they aren't built for it.
