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.
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.
