Depends on the baits you hang off it. A fully loaded A-rig can weigh upwards of 4-5 oz depending on the baits you choose. I throw it on 25# fluoro. You can also throw it on braid but it is a lot of weight. If you have a mid-air backlash, it will snap 50# braid like its nothing. If you want to be sure to not lose it, I would recommend 65# braid.
True, but I like the fact that my Braid floats, so mid-air backlashes can still be recovered if enough line was let out before it snaps.
