there is only one way to find out.
Try it and see.
Lot's of people on this board love the braid and have great success with it. I used it for a few brews and I didn't care for it. I weighted one end and it still kept floating up in the mash so it wasn't even on the bottom, then I was only draining from a point right at the spigot.
With my manifold, it stays in place from beginning to end and is always directly on the bottom of the tun. In my experience so far anyway.
Let us know how it works for you and what you think.
