Gotta be 4lb test for me at least 75% of the time. The places I tend to fish and like to fish tend to have clear water most of the year and the lowest visibility line I can get away with is a must. Also, the thinner the diameter the line, the farther I can cast tiny jigs and presentations, which is also a great asset when it comes to big panfish in clear water.

I use 2-4lb flourocarbon mostly. I really like the 2lb Sunline Sniper FC. The 2lb gives me the best casting distance, invisability in clear water, and lure action for the ultralight stuff I love throwing.

I use a 4 foot leader of 6 pound Stren Original tied on to 8 pound Nanofil or NanoBraid
with a double Uni-Knot. Very easy to tie, has small knot size, and will not slip.

I have better casting distance and sensitivity with this arrangement. Also, when I'm hung
up the leader will break off and not the main line. Sunfish are line shy to high vis lines.
Tying direct to Nanofil or NanoBraid would be a high vis situation.

I use the 6 lb leader because it is easier for me to see and tie with. I also like having
a little better abrasion resistance and the ability to handle the odd large fish that
bites on my sunfish offering. But if I was presented with crystal clear water I would
size down to 4 lb for less visibility.

I run 8 lbs line. I do a lot of trolling, drifting, and 4 lbs tangle too easily and breaks to easily when hanging up.
