I far prefer using steel over braid or mono. I did not like how it compressed in the spool and jumped unpredictably. I also know of at least one person that blames a cracked spool due to mono line that compressed into itself too much.

I always carry two spools of cable, two terminal kits and two spare cannonballs on board.

Scotty says using mono on their DR's is a no-no. Reason being it stretches under load then will contract on the spool resulting in uneven windings or even damage.

I also prefer steel over braid. There are a lot of advantages to braid, but I just feel I will notice a nick or kink in steel easier than in braid. Makes preventive maintenance a little easier.

I carry spare parts/terminal kits but not spare cable or weights. Another thing to add to the seeming never-ending list.
