I have been searching for a line that is going to work well on my spinning combo. I have braid on all of my other reels and I was looking for something with abrasion resistance. I have tried multiple brands of mono including Stren, Suffix, Trilene and BPS. Any reccomendations on any other brands of lines or any other types of lines. Thank you for your help.

Spinning reels need a low memory mono like Trilene XL not FC line. If you want to a braid with a top shot of FC like a leader, that combination works well. Berkely's Nanofil low vis green is a good choice, casts well and is quite going through the guides. You use a filler of mono and about 75 yards to Braid like Nonofil, then a Uni knot to join a 6' FC leader. Line size depends on how and where you plan to fish; 12lb Nonofil works well with 6 to 8 lb FC.

I was losing decent size bass when I first started bass fishing using my cheap Garcia
River mist mono. When I lost my last 3lb bass I said that's it. I started looking for
a better quality line. There once was a line test done at
Lurenet.com were they did bending and abrasion tests. At that
time the Excalibur silver thread performed really well. It's
a copolymer line. It has no stretch like the rubber band mono
does. I been using it ever since with success and no lost fish do to the line
I'm using. It's performance over all has been out standing.

I can fish with any decent fishing rod, I can get by with any decent spinning reel, but
When it comes to fishing line I need a good quality copolymer
line. I have tried other brands of copolymer lines that we're affordable
but they seemed stiffer when I tied my knots. Cabelas or bass pro shops had a decent
copolymere line but they discontinued it. It felt like Excalibur
silver thread too. We may pay more for the Excalibur silver thread over mono but it's good quality line. Bigbill
The fish are out there just waiting for you to throw the right lure along with the correct presentation so why are you still here?
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....

I hooked a giant bass (for me :)) on a spinning rod with a white rooster tail and lost the fish.  So I switched to 20lb braid which is the size of 8 lb mono.

 

I like it a lot.

x2 for me. I use braid on all my spinning set ups. Less head aches with line, more fishing, more fun.  Plus the sensitivity is unmatched in my opinion.

Give Yo-Zuri Hybrid #6 a try. The breaking strength is 11.9 lbs.

Was using Yo-Zuri Ultra Soft in mist green, very good line

 

Recently I tried braid with a flouro leader and it has become by favorite setup, seems much more sensitive to me the way I fish. Currently I am finesse fishing

I tried fluorocarbon on my spinning reels but didn't like it. I've tried quite a few others but pretty much stick with Trilene XL. For the money it's a decent line.  I wouldn't mind trying Yo-Zuri Hybrid but I can never find it when I think of buying line.

I've used Yo Zuri Hybrid and Hybrid UltraSoft, mono, etc., on spinning reels, didn't like how they managed. Didn't like having to always condition line with KVD's special sauce.

 

10 lb braid mainline is what I use now, hi-viz yellow, and I always tie on a leader of various poundage.

 

Braid is just that much superior than any other line (IMO & experience, YMMV) as to management on spinning gear.
