I use the Sams release with 20 lb big game mono for salmon fishing. I like it except it takes a little more time to redeploy. Getting the line wrapped around takes longer. If it is on the rough side sometimes the looped line comes off before you get it clicked in. For Walleye fishing when you are also catching allot of non target fish it is to much a pain. I use mono for walleye fishing with the 411 fishing orange clip in front or18 in back. Just loop twist the mono into the orange clip. I do not think that would work with braid. It is faster for me then sams for walleyes.
