8lb. Smoke FireLine under 3/4 oz. ones

10lb. Smoke FireLine (heavier lure's) 3/4 oz. ones

But with what you have Green because it blends in with the green weeds in the back ground.

Spinnerbait-20 or 25 lb. green Trilene Big Game--if the fish are aggressive, biting spinnerbaits, and don't see that big wire, then they aren't going to pay any attention to line size. Plus, when a five pound smallie hits a fast moving spinnerbait, you better have stout line or it is likely to snap.

Heavy tube-rarely throw anything heavier than 1/4 oz. (talk to Mini for heavy tube jigs
) but almost always use 10 lb. clear line when throwing tubes. I want to see any little movement, and I can't see green line very well, but don't want to use a gaudy line either.

You know Ken i was lookin at it and the price was the most i've seen so that tells me it must be good i will try it. I hear it's real tough on the line guide's. Tears them up is that true.
