If you like to stop.

Basically the longer your rubber brake lines get the more rubbery your brakes feel as the pressure is not going to the shoes or pads, but instead are just swelling the rubber lines and thus losing that pressure.
The braided brakes lines replace the rubber lines. They are still flexible, but have alot more stronger walls, thus having much less diformity when pressure applied. So that the pressure applied goes directly to the wheels rather than being lost in the line (rubber brake feel).

BUT there is a downside as the teflon inner liner will eventually breakdown as it is not 100% compatible with brake fluid. IMHO a swap to larger brakes would be preferable (if you have that option ie- 1/2t to 3/4 or 1ton brakes)
