30lb most of the time but some spots require 50lb and 2 healthy thumbs to stop big fish in the timber. Oh and some serious upgraded hooks. 10lb on flats in the harbour. All depends on where you are fishing.

Ummm.... 6lb, 10lb, 15lb, 20lb, 30lb & 50lb. Depends on where you are and how you are fishing. It also depends on the outfit you are using! For example I use 6lb on light flick stick I use for plastics on the harbour flats but I use 50lb on the stump puller I use for rock bar fishing. Horses for courses. It doesn't make much sense to fish 50lb on an outfit that only has 4kg of drag, 20 or 30lb will take the outfit to the limits of its performance envelope anyway and you limit your casting and presentation ability. If I had to pick one line size and stick with it 20lb would be my choice as it is the most versatile over a wide range of applications AND outfits. 20lb is still useful for small plastics but can pull fish from cover with some Black Belt rod work. Cheers, John.

I think Jays topic is good and people should still post what they are using for Barra, but with the newly found information in my new post people will be able to clarify what breaking strain and brand they are using and why.
