I was wondering the same thing, where I'm headed (the keys) they are highly recommended. I'm thinking about tying most of the patterns with them and if they present a problem in hooking bones (not a bad problem to have for a rookie like myself), I'll simply snip them off.

What about using 30lb floro for guards, I'm not sure how stiff they should be would 30lb rio hard mono do the trick, having trouble finding the Mason brand.
