I have only heard good things about braided brake lines.  Why do you think 
they are a waste of money?

I have them on my '77 Midget and they work just fine.  I have heard that they 
help to give a firmer pedal feel because they don't flex.  I have never 
driven a Midget with rubber hoses, so I can't compare.

The only bad thing I have heard is that way down the road, if they wear out 
internally, it is difficult to see the damage.  Scheduled maintenance will 
prevent that from being a problem.
