    I'm sold on Hi Seas Quattro, Camo,30# mono,, toughest stuff I've ever used,, the abrasion resistance is unbelievable for me.. If braid,, and I mean Power Pro see's something rough or sharp, it's gone,, too many dissappointments with that stuff while fishing the waters I hunt in..

    I use Western XP 30# 8#dia. I can get 300yds of line on my reels fishing from the bank they will not run me out of line. I can make long floats too.

    I use suffix super braid and love it. Its smooth casting, strong, and holds a knot really well.

    I use 30# P-Line Floroclear/ flourocarbon coated Dia.0.50mm, and can almost get the full 260 yds on..

    I bought some 20# P-Line Pure_Florocarbon that is 0.041mm in dia, and will get the full 250yds for sure.. Thats all I need. The 7000 pro rocket I just got will hold a little bit more,I'll fill it with the 30#.

    Braid cuts to easy. IMHO:cool2:

    Mono on spinners, Dacron on casters...except for right now because I'm experimenting with some Tuffline XP on one of my casters.

    If I can afford P-Pro I use that . If I'm not using that I'm using Cajun mono.

    I cant make up my mind:roll_eyes:. I use the Berkley big cat line and the Berkley Big Game line. I am also going to try out the Braided line as soon as I get a couple of more reels.:wink:

    I use braid and mono. I like the 65 lb. and 100 lb. power pro. I use 100 lb. power pro on the tournament rods. We have also been testing some 80 lb. cajun braid for team catfish and so far really like it. Pulled a 33 lb. blue around a stump in 3 ft. water with it the other day with no problems and no apparent damage to the line.

    As far as mono I use and trust premium salt water ande. It's abrasion resistant, throws well and ties strong knots. I Use 30 lb. on the 6000 and 6500's, and 40 lb. on the 7000 and 9000. Also use 50lb. and 80 lb. for leaders.

    I use 100# Power Pro braid exclusively. It just fits my style of fishin' and the conditions I fish.
