Amazing reel. Makes incredibly far casts and a really fast retrieve. Use it for some buzzbaits and does a great job keeping it above the water.

Hi Thomas, What are you fishing for? I would recommend 30lb Powerpro Super Slick V2. https://www.tackledirect.com/powerpro-super-slick-v2-braided-line-30lb-150yds-blue.html This line is very smooth and strong and can be used for both fresh water and salt water fishing applications. Please let us know if theres anything else we can assist you with. Tight Lines
