I like Sufix Siege in 12 lb. test for a good mono line. I have  had  very good luck with it I have not tried a lot of the other brands.

I'd do 30-40# braid and adjust the leader accordingly. Or straight 15# mono or copolymer

For all purpose use, it's still hard to beat a good co-polymer. 

 

Even though I am a die hard braid/ fluoro leader user, if I ever went back to spooling something besides braid on my reels it would be a co-polymer. I really really used to like Trilene Sensation , but it's been 10+ years since I have used it as a main line. With fluorocarbon prices seemingly going up a couple bucks per spool every year, I just bought some Sensation today for the first time in those said 10+ years to try as leader material. 330 yards for $7 vs. $15-$20 for 150 yards of fluoro.......I hope it works out just fine (I have a feeling it will) as I am always looking to fish cheaper.

When I'm grabbing one rod for pond hopping, it's got braid on it.  I feel like I can do just about anything on that rod without giving up much.  Mono/copoly will work as well, but I feel the sensitivity of braid is more beneficial

Berkley Big Game is all I use for saltwater stuff, but I had issues with trying to use it on my baitcasters. Might just be because the spools are older (bought a few 900yd spools at once), but I had constant issues with overruns.

I asked a similar question to this a couple weeks ago; however, I asked for primarily casting soft plastics on spinning reels. Most people said braid as the mainline then use a flouro leader. I am considering using 15lb PowerPro braid with 8' Yozuri Hybrid leader for my spinning reel setup.

Is #12 Yo-Zuri Hybrid good on spinning gear? I use it for my baitcasters but haven't tried it for my spinning gear. Would it be better to use straight #12 YZ Hybrid or #15 PowerPro braid with 8' of #12 YZ Hybrid as a leader on my spinning reel?

Production dates are listed on Trilene spool labels if you want to know the shelf life of the line

I don't think you would like #12 on spinning tackle as mainline or as a leader. #6 has breaking strength

of 11.9 lbs and that's what I would recommend.

Silver Thread Copoly in 12 or 14 pound test. That being said, I haven't seen a bad suggestion yet, so it's really up to you.

Looking back, when I first got into bass fishing years ago I had 14lb BPS Excel mono on every reel (four) and fished every  kind of bait on it.  Even frogs.

My dad has you beat, I took him fishing and he insisted on using a 6ft ml rod with 8lb mono.  He ended up landing a nice maybe 5lb bass  from the shore in an extremely pressured pond.  Don't ask me how on earth that fish got hooked and came in.  Oh yeah, I made sure to give him the crappiest frog i had thinking if for some reason he hooked a fish it would surely break him off.^_^

Just more proof that we might overthink all this stuff just a little...... :rolleyes:
