I use 10-20 pound flourocarbon 90% of the time. I only use braid for spooks, frogs, and flipping/pitching/punching super heavy cover. I strictly use monofilament for topwaters. I definitely like flourocarbon the best and it's super versatile.Sunline Model Flourocarbon
Flourocarbon isn't for everybody, and if you've never used it I suggest you try out the Sunline Model Flourocarbon. The Model Flourocarbon is a great "starter" flourocarbon and won't hurt your wallet if you decide you don't like it. This flourcarbon has everything you need in a fishing line. It's impact resistant, has great knot strength, sensitive, easy to work with, and will last for a long time. You really get everything you need from flourocarbon. It's great for flipping/pitching, cranking, finesse fishing, bottom hugging baits, reaction baits, anything! To be honest, if you use 15-25 pound test flourocarbon, you can work a topwater bait effectively. If I had to choose one line to use forever, it would be flourocarbon.
