Why I Don't Spool Reels with Mono

Do you still use mono on your reels?

Rarely use mono,only time in recent memory was on a trip with a buddy,CCAguns,and had probably huge red strip and spool 17 lb Fluro like it was silk thread(we were tied to Lake Borgne platform and unable to get free from platform)and I re-spooled with mono and left it on reel til recently when I replaced it once again with fluro,my line of choice due to the jigging techniques I typically use,need a denser line to get to bottom,like feel flouro affords and quality fluro much less likely to be frayed vs mono.Do have a few rods spooled with Fins Wind Tamer,in my estimation the Cadillac of braid lines,have tried Power Pro,not a fan of that first-generation and inferior line,again my experience and not a knock on that line just have proven via many fishing trips with Fins that Power Pro vastly INFERIOR!
