    actually I’ve given the wrong info ....I actually have another reel with light line for canals, so this will be for commercial lakes with lots of carp etc.

    My advice remains the same, personally I would use maxima original for what you are describing

    For feeder fishing I would tend to use a either a maroon or black coloured line these days, Cralusso do some nice ones. For float fishing I'd use very light green or clear lines, Sufix Excelon or Shimano Ultegra Invisitec. Gardner used to do a nice green one called HydroFlo, but I can't seem to find it these days. However, Ultima Power Plus is also a good one.

    For Carp on a commercial pool the I opt for Shimano Technium in 8lb breaking strain. . . . . it has low stretch of just 12%, great knot strength and it is a triple core line so is still supple but also long lasting.

    It is a little more expensive than most lines, but then quality is rarely cheap.

    You want 8lb then it's got to be Pro-Gold 6lb ......................

    Was about to suggest this but not sure a bulk spool for twenty quid is what the op is looking for.

    That’s Pro Clear, is that the same as Pro Gold in terms of quality?
