Heavy braid instead of wire

 G'Day all , compliments of the season to everyone.

I'm wondering if anybody has used heavy braid instead of wire to reduce bite-offs. I know they use woven dyneema for cut resistant gloves and I imagine it would (possibly) give better bait/ lure presentation and spook fish less. Any personal observations or thoughts appreciated, Thanks in advance,    John

 Bugger! Thanks for the info anyway. Thought I might have been on a winner there. Out of curiousity, what B.S. was the braid?

 If I can bite through 80lb braid I'm sure most toothys in the ocean would make short work of it
