I used Stren when mono was all I fished with starting out but now that I either use Flouro or braid I haven't kept up with the different qualities throughout the various mono brands. I need to pick up some 17-20# for buzzbaits, treble hooked topwaters and such. Which do you prefer? Probably just end up using a 2-3 foot leader anyway so that I don't have to change the spool out every month but still...

Big game is good enough for me.
If somebody would invent a mono with less stretching and similar sensitivity to fluoro then I would buy that for sure.

Someone turned me onto Suffix Elite a few years ago. I find this line to have less memory and seems to be stronger than labeled test strength. Haven't used any other mono since spooling my first reel.

Try some McCoys Mean Green or Xtra Clear, right up your alley.

^^^^
Mcoy's is very good in 15lb test and tough to beat for cranking/topwaters; but, the closest I've gotten to fluoro sensitivity in a mono is Pline CXX mono copoly
Also; CXX is less stretchy than Mcoy's. It does have more memory, so braid mainline solves that issue
