    Platypus low-stretch from ebay.
    What poundage (or diameter) ideally looking for?
    Drennan supplex fluoro is excellent for light ledgering (6lb) I use for my Chub fishing and it gives a good ping to the hook from distance.
    Braid is a good alternative on the reel but you need to be confident of or give care to knowing the tolerance of your wet knot strength/s when using braid, as this stuff can and will slip off at the swivel if not tied correctly..of learning an albright special you can use braid as a reel line and have fluoro or low stretch mono as your hooklink (just an idea 💡).

    The best I have used is Shimano Technium.

    It has very low stretch, approx 10%m, very little "memory" and high knot strength. . . .

    It is not cheapest line out there, but then the best rarely is . . . . and you might have to seek it out as not all shops carry it.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    The one with the least stretch I have tried myself would be drennan double strength.
