Hiya David,
Welcome aboard mate.
As regards shockleader- if its mainly clean, snag free ground you're fishing & you're using the usual .35 dia (15lb ish) mono as mainline tapered leaders are what i use (Asso being my preference) & i tie these with a 5 or 6 turn grinner in each)
If you're liable to find a snag or two then i'd use standard 60lb plus leader (i use Greased Weasel or Ultima) & tie these with an overhand knot in the leader & a 5 or 6 turn grinner in the mainline.
Speaking of mainline 19lb (.35 dia) Rovex 10X is what i use.
Hope thats some help.
Rick;)

Yeah that's great advice thanks rick m8 an thank u for the welcome hud. I'm using rovex line an rovex shock leader myself at present bud with a diff knot as stated. But I'm gonna give the one u suggested a try matey. As finding this a bit lumpy. Even tho its smaller an neater than the one my local tackle shop tied on which was quickly removed the knot was horrendous lol, an I generally use 20lb mainline an a 80lb shock leader as I am known to be a touch heavy handed on the casting side lol but am thinking of downsizing a notch or two to help with casting with the resistances of such heavy line. So my next setup shall be 18lb mainline going down to a 60lb shock as Im generally fishing over clean ground. Specially atm as the flounder r in big time locally still. Really appreciate the advice mate thank u kindly for the help an I shall try this an get back to youse with the results cheers buddy
