if you have a reel that uses 20lb mono which size braid would you use 20lb or 80lb :confused:

Depends on the reel and what you want to target. 25lb. braid has about 6lb. dia. I'd go with the lightest you feel comfotable with. Fill most of the spool with a good backing, lay the braid on tight and your ready to go! m2ctsw

Definately the reel determines what you can work with.....is this a baitcasting, trolling or spinning reel?

I'd put some backing on and fill her up with 15-25 lb.

40 lb Power pro has a 10lb diameter. It is plenty strong for most inshore applications and will hold up to some blue fish abrasion, while still being easy to cast.
Be careful with the thin diameter power pro it can give you some wicked paper cuts..
