In my opinion, it is just your opinion. If you're used to using mono, use mono. I think you will use that better than trying to switch to a different line. However, if you want to use braid, it is a great option. The strength of a knot is a lot better than Fluro on mono. But if you're getting wind knots, I don't really know what to recommend. I think you're probably just better off stick with mono unless you really want to use braid. As for trolling, I don't have much experience with that so I wouldn't be able to help you.
