Different braids for different applications...

Jerry Brown for heavy popping.
Saltiga boat braid for jigging.
Gosen for shore based spinning.
Fireline for my baitcasters (ok... so not a grinder... but still)
Tasline for heavy spinning and plugging.

Edit: Also PP super slick 8... Lovely stuff.

All of them great for the particular application.

I use 20lb BOSS finesse braid on for all my freshwater spinning reels, it's diameter is only 0.16mm meaning I get more distance when casting and more line on the spool and double the breaking strength than with 10lb mono... Only downside is the knots slip easier but if you tie 1 or 2 half hitches around your line with the excess line after you've tied your knot you'll be fine ;)

Love Suffix 832 for R&S, but also use Boss, Grinder and can't fault it.

Like it was mentioned above, I also use different braids for different applications.

Heavy shark tackle(grinder included) - HMP
Heavy (40-50lb) edible tackle - Black Velvet
Medium (30-40lb) edible tackle - Gosen
Light tackle/spinning (20Lb) - HMP
