    how would you feel about 100lb test then?

    10lb is silly thin and doesn't offer much in the way of protection against rocks/zebra mussels. it's fine if you're fishing open water or vertical jigging (ice fishing).

    a general rule of thumb is to match the diameter of the braid to the diameter of the mono you were previously using, ie. 14lb mono = 50lb braid or thereabouts.

    I like Sufix 832. I've also used Sufix Performance Braid and PowerPro and liked them. Strangely, the Sufix 832 is cheaper than their Performance Braid. The 832 seems a bit thinner but still stay round. Power Pro tends to flatten out.
