Welcome aboard!

Although I don't fish braid, if that's what you like why not fish it

on your spinning tackle, too? For something just a bit lighter,

maybe 20/6.

Another suggestion, quite the opposite of your approach, would be stealthier line for finesse presentations on your spinning tackle. I fish all sodt plastics on spinning gear and use Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft #6 (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb test). I think you will catch more fish on lighter, less visible line for this type of fishing.

What are the action and power ratings for your rods?  What technique do you use each one for?  How important is casting distance?  Help us help you  ;)

If you're going for distance and heavy cover the Yo Zuri Ultra Soft in 10lb may do the the trick. But if heavy cover is a bigger concern 30lb Power Pro would be my choice.  If have an extra spool you can get both and you would be all set.
