    power pro 50# test green.
    thats probably been my favorite so far. it just gets tangled too easily and tough to get undone. but its super strong and it cast far.

    Triline big game. I have been using it for several years and have been happy with it.

    Berley Big game....usually #30. And I like the Bright Green solar color because it is easy to see.

    Powerpro all the way. I like it because it has little to no memory so, while casting, it always comes off the spool straight as can be.

    In my book there is NO better line then Trilene. I've used it for years I've tried other lines but none of them stand up to the test like Trilene has. I tried that Cajun red line on my ABU spinning reels and I'll never use it again. It looks nice and is strong but it coils up so bad after just a few cast.

    I agree with you Swampy concerning the Cajun Red. Heck I have a whole spool of the stuff in my shop and I'll never use it again. The first and it was the last time I ever used the stuff it coiled so badly that it durn near ruined my fishing trip not to mention my fishing partners ears from me a cussing the dang blasted stuff. Luckily I carry a spare spool of Trilene in 25 pound test which saved the day and my mind.

    I use mostly mono on mine with three with braided right now. When I respool this season everything will have 30# mono.

    As far as favorite goes I can't say I have one that I would use over the others. I like Berkley Big Game, Stren High Impact, Stren Hi Test(which isn't made anymore), Stren Catline, Berkley Catline and Ande line all in in the bright green color. I have so high lbs test but so far I have been able to play the fish out enough to where 30 lbs test is strong enough.

    I like the original Stren an awful lot. Lately, I've been using Stren High Impact 15# (solar green) and like it pretty good, it's not quite as soft as original on spinning reels, but works fine.

    I use to use Trilene XL, but switched back to the Stren.
