If you like fishing with mono, i strongly suggest checking out P-line. This stuff is much stronger, much more abrasion resistant and casts easier than any monofilament ive ever seen. The only drawback is the price (about 2X as much), but spending $20-$30 dollars more a year to have the best is worth it to me. I use to be a big fan of berkley big game until a friend gave me a spool of this. We tested the breaking strength of both by pulling horizontally with a boga grip and found this:
20lb big game: broke at 25lb
17lb CXX P-line: broke at 33lb
both lines we tied with a palomar knot, on brand 1/4lb spools of line.
