power pro super slick 8, 8dia/30lb test. really like it. I've got 2 spools of Ande 20lb for leader, enough to last a life time. accidentally bought a second spool, forgetting I already has about 1500 yards of it. I use a 5 foot leader with the FG/Rizzuto finish.

I use Fins 40G in 25lb. Expensive, but worth it in my opinion. Artificials only.

I've been using KastKing(if that's what you are referring to) 20# braid for about 6 months and it has done well. Just got a little 1000 series Nasci and spooled it up with their higher end 10# stuff. Only fished with it once, so we will see how it does.

Fins Windtamer 30#

First time I tried Slick 8 was the last. Brand new, spooled the reel up.. Went and casted out in the street.. Mid air, broke off. FIRST CAST. No, it didn't come untied or break at the knot. I walked down the street to get my lure back and there was still 3-4yds of line hanging on.

I like 832 as well, but just stick with Windtamer cause if it ain't broke don't fix it. Also because of the big *** jack my fishing bud caught down in POC on accident was caught on 30# Windtamer. 1hr 15min fight on a medium light rod and the Windtamer was still rolling the rest of the day. Saw it occur before my eyes and it sold me. Have video of it too on YouTube. The fight starts at 28:18
(Excuse the stupidly long video.. this is when we were first starting out with youtube vids a few years ago.)

The funniest part was seeing everyones faces in Mitchells Cut as that fish was dragging us through there out to West Matty. They were looking at us like we were crazy lol

Color is irrelevant, I use bright colors so I can see my line, but the fish don't care.
