Go with 6# mono, should be light enough for pannies and have enough for big bass. I have 6 on my ultralight, works just fine for me.

4# Fireline.  Just look at your reel's spool capacity.

Sorry Bob there is no basic thumbs up without the crazy smile.  But your reccomendation is perfect.


If you want to go heavier on a UL then you don't belong using an UL. Thats what drag is for. :)

I would ask what you cast with #6?  I have a lot of stuff thats a pain to cast with #4 let alone 6.

How come you have braid higher then fireline? They are relatively the same diameter and strength. I personally would stay away from fireline fused lines, fireline braid is OK but power pro braid is the best IMO.

I recently switched to silver thread line, I love their fluoro and would highly suggest giving that a try.

Braid is smaller diameter than Fireline.  Example Fireline Braid 15/4 compared to Fireline Original 10/4.   Fireline usually has a ridiculous high break strength and knot strength that surpases braid.  It's far easier to break a braid line on a hook set than on Fireline.  I've broken plenty of 30# braid and almost never on 14# Fireline in the early days.  Had to ease up on the hook set to a pull.  These superlines have relatively low shock resistance to basically no shock resistance.

I'm a silverthread user, but haven't tried their flouro line yet.

Shimano 1000 reels are actually what I would consider an UL.  I consider those L.  I normally use 6# with slipbobbers even for pannies.  I hate having line damage on bobbeer throughout the day.  Straight lures, 1-4 lbs lines.
