    Hello Shaun,

    Welcome to FM! Why are you looking to change your lines? I use Berkley Trilene "big game" in 12lbs and never had a problem with it, it's like tow rope! Another basic but good line is Daiwa sensor. Both proven lines and cheap too!

    Welcome Shaun.

    When choosing line look also at diameters. It's not all as crystal clear as it should be.

    Hello mate and welcome. As has already been said you wont go far wrong with sensor. However if you prepared to pay a bit more Catana in 12lb takes some beating.

    As does Shimano Technium - excellent line, but not cheap.

    I use it in both 12lb B/S and 15lb B/S
