Specs and Reds can put a LOT of tension on the lines! I typically use 30# PowerPro braid as the main line and then I will use a 4' flouro leader with 12-15 pound line connected using Uni-to-Uni knots. Watch your leaders and if you feel it s worn, you need to cut the hook and worn line (typically about 3-4 inches) and re-tie.
If you are out catching big Reds, make sure you have plenty of braid on the spool to prevent being completely spooled by the fish.
