No idea on the PE but it is crap braid.

Plenty of decent braid that is not too exy in price. For example Stern. Or if you buy bulk spools.

Fins is decent if you are buying a reel from tackleworld they often will spool it with Fins at a good price.

Whats the difference between good braid and bad braid? Is berkeley fireline exceed any good?
If not, are there any you could recommend for 30-40$? Tight budget lol

Karaiki is 0.15mm. The thickness of the Hercules isn’t listed on the website. You should email their customer service page and ask the question.

Make sure you find out if it's PE or super PE as well.
