    This year I will be using my new Big Game reels from Abu Garcia.I was a big fan of Power Pro, but this year I might go back to using mono. Any tips on a good type of line for these reels would be greatly appreciated.

    I have Berkley Big Game 15lb Solar with 50lb BBG clear shock leader on my 7000s.
    Nice strong line that I've been using for years.

    p.s. P-Line is also a good line to use.

    I have 2 abu 7000's and 1 abu 9000 and I run 40 lb. premium salt water ande on all of them. It's very abrasion resistant, ties strong knots and will cast a long way on the 14 ft. poles they are mounted on.

    It all matters... where are you fishing? Lakes, rivers...if lakes or rivers with little snags 30-40Lb big game by BERKLEY should be plenty good. If you are fishing brush piles or snags stick with POWER PRO. 65-80LB fit great on those reels. I myself love to have as much line as possible on my reel. Braid allows me to do that with heavier test line.

    GOOD FISHING

    Hey Gregory
    If you have been a big fan of power pro. When you swithc to mono you wont like it. Ande is as good as it gets for mono, but I would stick with power pro . If you are after big brutes go with the 80/20 if not the 65/15 is plenty. JMHO
