    Depending on what style slip float your using I'm wondering if braid would cut into the hole in the bobber, causing issues with the bait sinking.

    I've had issues with the cheaper bobbers that just have a hole in the plastic with even mono cutting into the hole and not letting the bait drop smoothly. I've mostly gone to the Thill slip bobber that has the brass insert in the top of the bobber.

    If your not using a bobber with an insert look at the hole under magnification, maybe your line is cutting into the bobber material causing the issue.
    This video talks about the issue. link goes to Thill facebook page

    Iíve used Varivas PE lines (Infinity x8 0.3#, Area Master Limited Super Premium 0.175#, and their BFS PE line 0.6#) and Daiwa Gekkabijin PE 0.2# (I think rated to 3.8 lbs). All of them, other than the BFS PE line, are hair like thin. Never had a single wind knot on spinning gear in 2 years of use. Never broke off.

    Didn't know anyone made 3# line. I found 2# over near Portland, 2# impossible to find in Central Oregon. When I was stationed in Germany, 1967-1970, I fished the rod and gun club lakes for trout and got crystal sewing thread from the BX for line. Tested out with a fish scale right at 1#. try setting a hook in a bigger fish and had to be gentle to avoid breaking it. But loved using it!
