I use the 70lb - 18lb Varivas tapered leader from Veals. Attach to .35mm line all the time with no worries.

Personal preference. Tapered gives a smaller knot and can catch less weed than parallel shock leader. It also gives you a good length of stronger line to get a fish through the surf if you need to.

OTOH tapered leader is bloody expensive compared to ordinary leader. I only use it over clean ground - anywhere I'm likely to lose a bit of gear I stick to normal parallel 80lb leader.
