Full braided brake lines

So assuming I am thinking right here...

I have an old jeep with full drum brakes and the brake lines are getting tired and old, I have looked into full braided lines before for ease, flexibility and such but I hear mixed opinions. I hear that you loose a lot of brake feel with a full set of braided lines. Is this something I should look out for?
