Fluorocarbon. I use Segaur Tatsu on swim jigs. 15lb. It has the abrasion resistance of AbrasX and the suppleness of InvisX. It's great.

most of the time 65lb braid but im usually flipping, pitching and swimming the jig around shallow heavy cover if I'm in open water 15-20lb floro works fine

why? Just curious. I'd think that a "swimming" presentation would benefit from a line that sinks and is very hard to see.

Braid has a definite place, I know that. I have a few combos that always have braid on them. But I'd think a flourocarbon would be a much better choice for a swim jig.
