If you stick with a braid I would up the lb test to 65 or even 80 for flatheads. 20-30 for channels and 40 lb for flats if you go with mono.

I have heard mixed opinions on Spiderwire ... I have heard that it can do some nasty things to the eyelets, any thoughts on this?

Any super line can damage lower quality guides. This usually occurs on the tiptop and the first guide.

That is what I was hearing, usually tiptop and first as they are the two the line most frequently comes into contact with ... good to know
