Stren® Sonic Braid Line
This Sonic Braid Line features Stren's GlideCoat™ Technology, which produces a fast-casting, super-smooth, quiet and wear-resistant braided line that flies through rod guides for accurate, effortless, trouble-free performance -- cast after cast. With its high-strength Dyneema® polyethylene fiber construction that is stronger than steel, Stren Sonic Braid is tough enough to beat tree stumps and rip crankbaits through the thickest hydrilla when fishing in freshwater or hoisting giant groupers in saltwater. Sonic Braid resists wind knots other management problems, while delivering unmatched knot and tensile strength. The Sonic Braid's GlideCoat Technology lasts longer and holds color better.

If you are looking for a low visiblity braid go with the Low vis green, the stuff is amazing, best braid on the market if you ask me.
Lastly I have to disagree with the other poster who suggests using mono as an all around line. I say use low vis green Stren Sonic braid as an all around line! Why not take advantage of the uber strengh of braid and the amazing performance of this sonic braid! mono is just too stretchy and weak IMO
I use the 30 pound line all the time.
I just wouldn't buy spiderwire stealth I think that line has something against me.
I am probably going to scale back a bit & try for 50lb test this year. The 30lb was great for casting distance but the line wasn't as strong if you got tangled. Hope this helps!
One thing to note is, that it soaks up water more than monofilment line. If you are fishing saltwater, be sure to rinse your reel afterward so the saltwater retained by the line doesn't corrode your hardware.
Stren Sonic braid is tops in my book so why not make it tops in your book?
This braid has it all small diameter, castability, and it is super strong.
Sonic braid casts smoothly and fantastically far so why not give it a try?
Hope you chose this braid,
Hope this helps. Fish on!
