You can make it complicated or keep it simple. I prefer simple:

Spinning tackle: #6 Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb test)

Baitcasting gear: #12 Hybrid or Hybrid Ultra Soft (.013" diameter, 19.5 lb test)

Can't you come up with something new?

You've been using that line for 25 years!

Does no one use floro?  I've got a Winch on the way that I was thinking about using 10 lb floro on...

Interesting. On other board, one of 27 members like fluoro and one for braid while the rest of them prefer mono.

Chris I currently use fluoro for deep cranking but, thinking about switching back to mono due to several reason. Constant backlashes with fluoro only with deep crank outfit. Rarely do I get birdnest when casting spinnerbait or worms with fluoro except deep diver that gives me a fit. I don't know if switching to mono will solve the problem for me. Moneywise, yes it would.

The issue might be the reel.  What reel is it?  I have no issues with FC on either of my TD-X reels.  One of them I run "wide open" as in no brakes, with 20# line for pitching.

Fluoro sinks quickly mono with a specific gravity of only slightly over 1.0 sinks much much slower. Want to get deeper use fluoro. I don't crank deep all that much but I use fluoro on jigs and soft plastics with no more backlash issues than mono
