I was wondering what everyone's preferred line for throwing cranks?  Mainly squarebills and medium diving?

  I've used many, many lines over the years. I'm on InvisX (12 lb.) right now, and I like it.     jj

I use 10 lb.  the lighter the line usually the diameter is less too.  Allows lures to dive deepest.

 

I use flouro for jerkbaits however.  Flouro sinks

Mono, 12-17 for square bills, 10 for cranking.

Shallow running cranks - 10-12# mono or 20#braid

Deeper running cranks - 10# Yo-Zuri hybrid

braid to flouro leader material 100% of the time and a long leader 15 or 20 feet . 30 or 40 braid  main line. 17 or 20 leader for the big cranks. 15 for every thing else. ill never go back

I use Sufix Siege 12# mono for crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and topwater poppers, buzzbaits, and walking baits.

The lightest line you can get away with and be comfortable with. Banging on rocks, I feel flouro gives the best resistance. Burning traps through grass, I like braid. Mono would be great for treble hooks if you don't have a parabolic bend (moderate action) in your rod, however I do so I don't use mono at all.

12 lb k9 fluoro presently. It's really good cranking line in my humble opinion.

Thanks for all the responses everyone!  Never really threw cranks before because I was mostly shore bound.  Now that I have a boat, I have a buddy that I have been fishing with since we were kids that keeps telling me I have to throw cranks more often.  Just wanted to see what everyone uses for line.

I'm slowly moving to Trilene XT as my Stren supply runs out. Hadn't used XT in years but they changed the formula a few years back apparently and it handles better but still has lower stretch and is more sensitive than most monos..noticeably more than Stren. I'm cranking with 8lb.

My buddy keeps telling me I need Flouro for the cranks, so was wondering what everyone else uses.  I hate Flouro!!!
