Default line and leader choices

i am doing mostly back bay fishing maybe a little jetty. i am using 20 lb. power pro line. is a 25lb leader enough? or should i go with a heavier leader to avoid line curl? i have heard alot of good about power pro but i was wondering if it does have faults. almost sounds to good to be true.

Hi Billy,I was using#20 P.P & had some issues with it.I loved it at first,but after 20 or so trips it started to break,and it happened on one of the best blitzes of the year.So I took it off & went back to Fireline,used fireline for years,never had a problem. #25-30 is fine for "skinny" water leader.
