Just got a new 6500 C3 and I am not sure what I should spool it with. I want to go with braid as line. Any suggestions?

You are going to get many answers on this thread. I have been using 65 pound power pro with a leader on my hook on 30 pound mono. It has been working well for me. I prefer braid because I think I feel bites much better with it.

65lb Power Pro with 50ld Big Game mono leader has been working great for me.

30lb big game would be hard to beat for Catfishing.

The team catfish mono is pretty good too

I use 25# Offshore Angler from Bass Pro. It's tough as nails. Pulls 40's out of trees, good enough for me. Won't break, craziest thing I've ever seen in mono. A buddy of mine pulled a 65 out of a tree with it last year on Twok. Ntm its $10 for 1000 yards.

Well since you said you wanted to use braid, I'd suggest 65lb.

I would stay away from braid unless you are experienced using a baitcast reel. You might end up with the backlash of death.
