If you're running Cannon riggers with auto/short stop, installing braid will disable that feature just fyi.

I believe he is referring strictly to his rods not his riggers?

Braid works great until the fleas show up and stick to it so bad that you won't be able to reel it in

You just slap your rod on the water furiously to get the fleas off, right?  But yes, it gets pretty bad in the summer.
