Line for big cranks

Recommended Posts

What would be a good choice for the cranks that whey about an ounce, such as the Little John DD?

Sunline Shooter Defier in 17lb test is my go to deep crank line now... has the diameter of about 10lb p-line cxx, casts like a dream, is super smooth and limp - but pricey.  It lasts a LONG time though...

20lb PP green braid.  I know some people like the stretch of mono for cranks but you can just adjust your hookset or get a longer rod with more play in the tip.  If your fishing with a 1oz crank chances are your gonna hook the bigger fish.

20lb braid isn't a bad option. You just have to use a fluoro leader if fishing around rocks.

I personally fish 12 lb Trilene 100% fluoro all the way.
