I like sufix 832 in the low vis green. Normally 10 or 15 lb.

I use an old line that is hard to find, NO MEMORY and hard to find. LYNCH LINE is it. If there is a 10 to 15 MPH wind blowing, it is not nearly as good as others, but it is the best I have found. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

If you are throwing braid to a 20' floro leader, why does it matter that much? I generally throw 15-20lb PowerPro but why would it matter much as the fish aren't seeing my braid anyways?

Suffix 832 in 10 lb is pretty great.

Sunline Siglon PEx8 Braided Line Orange, usually 16# to a Sunline Super FC Sniper 8# leader. On leader length, I don't want the knot back up in the reel when I go to cast.

Improved sensitivity with braid (and visibility of strike detection if using high vis)

#30 Smackdown. About the same diameter as #20 Power Pro and casts better. A little pricey, but the difference is night and day. Give it a try. thumb

I don't use braid for my drop shot because I use a baitcaster. I use all fluorocarbon line, but when I do use braid for other techniques and on my spinning gear, my favorites are Daiwa Samuri braid and Suffix 832.

Academy brand braid, because it’s cheap and just as good.

So Academy braid as your main line and Bass Pro shop Fluorocarbon for your leader would be two inexpensive lines that work well for the price.
