Hi reado
whiplash is a popular brand, good price,30 to 50 would be ok, do test clutch out when you load braid onto a reel as it is not as forgiving as mono, but the feel of bites is tremendous.

Hi reado
you need to let us know more mate
Weights of lures you intend to use will govern the type of rod ,reel,braid and leader needed
A ballanced outfit is the key. Very Happy

Yallreet Mate,
Im fairly new to the game too and have just started using 50lb Power Pro for my lure adventures and it beats mono in my opinion hands down. I sorted my self out with the braid with the advice on the forum regarding spooling up, etc.

Esoxjeff is right, when you get a bite you can count the teeth in the pikes mouth with the feedback you get lol!
Not only that you can land supprise snags like shopping baskets, barbed wire, and old coats with ease lol!

The only problem I thought I had was with fade but as Ive been told and subsequently discovered it makes no difference.
