Banana braid is good but being flat in profile it can catch the wind more than a round profile braid. That's the only reason I switched to. Fox braid with a 50b korda shockleader.

Carp spirit braid for me. Doesn’t need wetting either. Been using it last 6 months, no issues with knotting unlike the whiplash previously.

Just ditched 30lb whiplash that breaks at 15lb for banana braid in 30lb which snaps at 24lb with a 50lb banana braid leader and it's much better.

Hey up Wac. No such thing as a wind knot, some idiot that made that up!

It knots up because you have slack spots on the spool from when you last reeled in, when you cast out the next time it picks up and gives you the tangle

I gave up with whiplash for tbese very reasons, put it down to the finer diameter, every time a spod or spomb pops.on the surface you will get slack, slow down winding in and it will relief the situation a little. Wind in through a towel and you will never get a "wind knot" again

I am back on a bigger diameter braid now for the very same reasons, Hoping it will lay better when wet on the spool

I usually only use the midi spomb as can cast this further than the large. I generally use 30lb whiplash straight through with no leader needed. However the latest batch of whiplash has been terrible for wind knots. Any suggestions for alternatives please?
