17 will work for small baits

2-4 ozs- 20lb CXX

4-7 ozs- 25lb CXX

7-15ozs- 30lb CXX

Very, very rarely I will use braid with a Mission Fish, but only if fishing way back in the tulies.

A.K.A. one size down from rope.

But catching the potential world record I would too.

heres what tackletour had to say:

SB Rod Wars Fishing Line Summary

Product

     

Comments

Fluorocarbon      

Good for bottom bouncing techniques but be leery of knot strength.

Copolymer      

Good all around line choice.

Nylon Mono      

Good all around choice for mid and topwater techniques where the stretch is beneficial.

SuperLines (Braid)      

Good for topwater techniques.

Tackle Tour is only expressing the opinion of the person writing the review, to that person it works that way, it ain 't the gospel, it 's just his opinion, in other words, you have to try with several until you find the one that tickles your fancy.

I use P-Line Evolution .

Me 2.

I used CX and CXX but I cant stand how it manages even tho its ridiculously strong.  I do use big game occasionally as well but it gets changed out often.
