    Thing is mate you will get a variety of answers here as its personal preference and i would say go for the best you can afford and a line best suited for the type of ground you will be fishing. Clean sandy beaches light line from 12lb-15lb for rock marks the strength of the line will want to upped from 18lb up to 30/35lb with better abrasive quality buy from a well known manufacture Sylcast, Ultima, Daiwa steer away from what seem good deals from China/Hong Kong you do not want to lose a fish of a lifetime although someone will no doubt advise differently. Good luck

    If its rough ground, 30lb sensor takes some beating. If you can get hold of sylcast 31lb, also very good

    As T4fishing said, there are so many variables.

    Tell us the venues you fish and what the ground is like and we will be able to advise you better.
