It's not so much that thicker line casts better, but that you can tune a reel's behavior with line diameter: 

As the spool empties, the diameter of the filled spool reduces so it feeds less line per revolution, thicker line will empty a spool faster and reduce the amount of line being released.

This is very useful with square geometry spools (full dia is greater than or equal to spool width) like on the Trini 16A and 20A.

Thicker and stiffer braids are also easier to unpick when something goes wrong.
Hollow core braids are nice, but expensive.

If I recall, Cuban Cigar swears by Fireline on his multipliers - I like it too. 

What reel are you using?
