Depends on the weight of the baits you will be using.

Example..guys that throw the heavier baits, 5oz and up will use 35-30lb mono.

I use 55lb braid with a 12 fluro leader for 2 oz and lighter baits, if your going to be using the lighter baits, the 20lb fluro will work fine.

Haha..I use that line, like many others here.  Also, I tossed up to 2 oz swimbaits with yozuri's 12 lb line..never had a problem. But that was in open water.

Good choice. :D

use some 12# P-LINE CXX , will hold up well with baits in that weight range . probably alot  more manageable than that yo-zuri !!!! if you want to use floro , use leaders on some 30 lb. power pro , alot cheaper in the long run  :D

Have you ever used Yozuri ultrasoft..?  It's very manageable..that's only 1 reason why alot of us use it.. :D

i used 6 lb. YO-ZURI ulta soft and that stuff is a nightmare , as far as using it again , no thanks . at the tackle store i go to , hardly anyone uses it . that stuff is waaay too stretchy and coils up big time , makes CXX feel like TRILENE XL  ;D ;D ;D
