TDR is terrible stretchy, thin, breaks easy stuff. Daiwa Sensor or Maxima. Maxima takes on water so sinks easily. Ide Basher never uses a rod so he would'nt know what its like[:D]

I used to use sensor on all of my reels and still do on my big fish reels. On my match reels I have switched to ultima power plus and it is far more suited to method feeder and also waggler rigs, I also use Drennan seper mono and like that too. It does pay to experiment until you find something you are happy with. Sensor isn't bad line but try another on one spool and see how you get on.

guru dragline for the feeder, perfect line for the feeder, and berkley trilene sensation for a waggler line. i find that a great waggler line.

Daiwa Sensor for the feeder, good old Bayer Perlon for stillwater float work and Drennan Floatfish for the rivers.

All three have served me well for years so I see no need to change.[:D]

Even if Maxima were free I wouldn't use it - horrible, stretchy stuff[xx(]

Another vote for it herealthough I don't think they do 3lbs which is a shame! (Might just be the shop I have recently used though)
