trying to decide if I should put 10lb big game, 12lb big game, 10 lb fluoro, or 12lb fluoro on a reel for mainly senkos/wacky rigs. What do you guys think?

I use 8lb fluoro., most of the time. I thinks its Invisx line.

I would go with 10 or 12 pound fluorocarbon, depending on the cover. Sometimes 8 pound fluoro works best.

either 10# Invizx or 8# Gamma Edge. I just found Gamma Edge and will probably be leaning that way going forward.

Have used 10lb floro but had problems with break-offs on hook set. This is probably more my fault than the line but I went up to 15lb and it has worked out fine.

12-15 up to 20 lb flouro or co-poly on a MH rod. I power fish weightless tx-rig Senkos around heavy cover and skip them under docks/overhangs!

I have used 12# Maxima monofilament for almost 20 yrs, for Wacky Worm, and 15# for Senkos/Flukes.
