    What kind of monofilament line is the best. I need some 8# for my spinning reel. Also what is everyone's favorite fluorocarbon and braided line?

    I hope I'm not about to really stir things up.

    PowerPro for Braid, P-line for Flouro (Leader material mostly) and good old Trilene XL for mono. All my rods are powerPro except for one cranking stick and a couple ultalites.

    I'll tell ya what, I bought some 6lb Cabella's brand mono line, it was pretty cheap, but MAN that line is awesome!! I seriously haven't had a single break in it and I've hooked some decent sized bass on it. I got the green mono line, a spool of it for pretty cheap and I'm totally impressed with it.

    I used to swear by spiderwire, but that stuff must deteriorate over time, cuz I had some on a pole and every fish I caught it would snap. But I put this Cabella's brand stuff on and I've been totally blown away.

    Just my .02

    I'm sure you are!!:lol:
    He asked about Mono - WHY I don't know...LOL! :lol:
    I love Power Pro on baitcasters - but prefer Stren Micro Fuse / Fireline Crystal on spinning gear due less wind knots.
    I guess (for just a Mono line which I almost never use) Trilene XL is better than Stren since Pure Fishing changed the recipe after they bought out Stren. :rant:
    Yo-Zuri Hybrid is a bit "wirey" but is super abraision resistant and I like that line a BUNCH for casting spinning gear.
    Triple Fish Flouro-Carbon is a good FC line .
    Cabela's has most of their stuff made by P-Line if memory serves.

    I have some 8 and 10 pound berkley sensation that I like right now. So far I don't have any complaints.

    I like Ande Mono. I use the 4lb for stream trout in the clear and have no problems, I've yet to break a fish off on it and it's pretty tough stuff. It's also only 10 bucks for a 1/4lb spool so it lets you spool often.

    Braid I love power pro, I use 8lb mostly but I also like the 5lb.

    Flouro I only use as a leader and Maxima flouro is my favorite.

    Haven't got much into braids or superlines, but I use P-Line Flouroclear for just about everything. Trilene XL is nice for a low cost option.

    I like Berkely Fire line on spinning reels, and Power pro on casting rig's!
    I have tried Pline FC and a few others as of now im using Berkley 100% flouro, have been having no problems with it, Usually just for leaders, I see alot of guys running real short (under3ft) leaders, wel thats ok I guess but it stresses the crap out of the knot's, so I use a long leader usually 2x's the length of the rod to start then as I retie it gets shorter!
    Buy some try it make your own decisions!

    1) My trout set-up is spooled with 4lb maxima ultragreen
    2) For salmon/steelhead (pier casting) i use 20lb fireline in smoke color, 15lb berkley fluoro for a leader
    3) For everything else i use 6lb fireline in smoke

    If i'm casting and ever get worried about spooking fish with the braid (finesse fishing with worms and such) i will tie on a 3ft lead of the ultragreen, never have any problems with that setup, just make sure to tie a good uni knot

    Gamma, Gamma and Power Pro, Too bad they don't make Gamma any more. Don;t get Vanish!!! I tied some harnesses up last year worked good, this year they are breaking left and right. I gonna start cutting them apart and retieing them with something else, probably Seager.
