Is 10 lb braid stronger than 10 lb mono?

I hope this question isn't the same as "which is heavier, a pound of feathers or a pound of lead" but I know there is no real scientific measurement on lb test and I know people who say you need to get a stronger braid line than you normally would have with mono? Or maybe its the other way around. Either way, any information would be very much appreciated.


  • Pound for pound they are the same in strength however youll notice the diameter of braid is much smaller than the equivalent mono or fluoro line. Due to stretch and abrasion resistance, it would be safe to say that 10 lb braided is actually "stronger" than 10 lb monofilament.

  • @InsuranceBrokerDon Youre going to find that braided line that has the same lb test as monofilament is going to be much thinner. A 10 lb braided line is going to be roughly the same thickness as a 2 lb monofilament line. So you not only get to spool much more, but it casts easier as well.
