I use a short section of 25lb Maxima with loops on both ends so I can protect a welded loop on my tip. The larger diameter does not cinch down enough to cut through the coating.
If my tip had a braided mono loop, I wouldn't bother with the large diameter mono and go straight to the tippet of say 8lb to 12lb. Fly size would determine my tippet, not water clarity.
Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??
