Lotta guys like fluoro for jerkbaits, but I like mono because of handling and stretch w/trebles. I see why in clear water some might want the non visibility factor of fluoro, but mono is not high vis by any means, and there is not need in my situation to get extra depth so I use mono. Generally I use Stren Original or Seagur Senshi is quality line also. As for #Test I use 12, but I've seen guys on FLW use as light as 8 for visibility reasons.

I use 11lb Defier Armilo. Your favorite mono in .025-.028 diameter should work well. I would stay away from fluoro because it will drag the front down, since it sinks. Stay away from braid because it won't give when you get a bite and you'll miss a bunch because you rip it away before they have it.

Mostly 8# fluorocarbon, usually InvisX, unless I'm around heavier cover (usually not). Did play around this weekend with braid using a fluoro leader while jerkbaiting - worked better than I expected, but need to test a lot more before I would consider switching from fluoro.

Usually 10lb.sniper, although I've been  using  11lb Defier also, really impressed with it.

12# Fluoro seems to do the trick for me.

Well, other pros may disagree. The pros that I met at Bass University all recommended

monofilament line.

This.

I have used anything from 6# to 12# depending on the weight of the jerkbait and what other factors I may take into consideration.

That's why I had "arguably" as opposed to "unarguably."

I am a fan of Fluoro, because of the sensitivity it gives you on slack line. When you are pausing the Jerkbait for 30+ seconds in cold water, feeling that light tick from Smallmouth gently mouthing the lure is the difference between catching a fish am not even knowing he was there.
