Ande® Premium Monofilament Line - 1/4 lb. Spool
Ande premium 20#, green
This line isn't bad. Most mono above 12# starts getting pretty stiff and Ande premium is not an exception. I find knot-tying to be challenging. Still, it is more supple than a number of its competitors. Overall, it's a good buy.

Ande Mono 6lb. test clear.
Ande is the only line I use and will use the 6lb. line in a pinch but I prefer the back country envy green line. It is a little softer and casts better. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to find at Bass Pro now for some reason.

This is the best line I have ever used for the price. It has low memory, and I've yet to have it break.

I found Ande the first time on the surf beaches at Hatteras and have used it ever since. They used to guarantee that the line matched IGFA strength test requirements, thus guaranting no problem in submitting a world record application - don't know if they still do.
I used mostly the 8# on spinning and the 12# on baitcasting. In cold weather, I've found kinking problems with larger #test than 12 so I stay with the smaller diameters which has worked well in the jungles of the Ohio River tributaries. The line tends to be of slightly larger diameter than American brands which helps with cutting down on abrasion breakage. Cost per yard is generally cheaper than American brands also which is another plus.
