I'm and looking for a good mono fishing line and want to know which line you think is best. My choices so far are Mccoy Mean Green or Mason Bass On or T-line . I was also considering Silver Thread AN40, and another line that I've never seen before that's available is Mason Walleye Premium Coplymer (for bass too) - if you heard about or used these lines and could compare this to the rest mentioned I would appreciate your response. Thanks in advance.

I want to put 17 lb on my Shimano Baitfeeder 4500B and 8 lb (or 6 lb -which would you recommend?) on my lighter Okuma Avenger ABF-30b, both are spinning reels with the baitfeeder option so the fish can take off with the line until you set the hook. Mason Walleye Premium only goes up to 15 lb test.

I mostly river fish but also fish in lakes and ponds often.

I would bottom fish with the larger reel and jig, lure, bottom, bobber fish with the smaller reel.

Real Considerations:
1. Knot strength
2. Casting Ability
3. Abrasion Resistance/Durability
4. Hard to see under water
5. Limp - low or no memory

Sounds good - I'm really almost sold on the mccoy mean green, but hope to hear about the other lines and line diameters before I buy.

6lb vs 8lb for light applications and 15lb vs 17lb for heavier (bottom fishing)

McCoys by far the best I have ever used a guide here in Fork put me on to it several years ago. I did try another line a company put out that was supposed to revolutionize the line industry but it was 100%junk.

Everyone should check out the MAXIMA Mean Green mono. Made in Germany, stronger than anything else, I've tried, small diameter, super knot strength, great casting. No problems, or negatives, in the 18 yrs. I've been using it.

I like to keep it simple when it comes to line. If you are mostly fishing rivers, you don't have to fish heavy line. I fish the river and also Toledo and Rayburn so I use 6 lb line on spinning tackle for the river and 12 lb Berkley Big Game for the lakes. Never had an issue and have landed lots of big bass. Fished Fork this Spring with a veteran guide and he used 15 lb Berkley Big Game on everything. I like the 12 lb because it has less memory and is easier to cast.....and very strong also. The key is a good knot and always adjust your drag before fishing.

Big Game. I do sample all of the other Mono's out there but end up always going back to Big Game. The only other one I like is the original Stren in the clear color, not the clear fluorecent.
