Looking at Penn 115 (9/0) setups and trying to decide what pound test line to spool up with. Do I go with 60 pound or 80 pound? Mostly will be used for tuna fishing. I got a great deal lined up for Sufix Superior and average deal for Momoi Diamond. It appears Sufix and Momoi are the 2 go-to lines, but does it really matter?
Thanks, Sean

I have everything of mine spooled with 60 momoi. Considering line diameter vs. drag setting, 60 is all you would need around here. The rule of thumb is drag setting 1/3 of line breaking strength....20 lbs. of drag is up there in my opinion for stand up gear. You might want to consider lever drags for offshore if you haven't pulled the plug on those 9/0's yet.
