I use spider wire 50lb and 80lb. So far I have loved it. It will straiten a hook or pull up a log before braking. My friend was telling me power pro is better. I don't change my line as often as I should. About once a year. I just cut 2ft off now and then. I fish about every other weekend during the summer and 2 or 3 weekends in the winter. What line would be good for this abuse. And has a good cast.
