I now use NG ultra core in all my short kits as its very stretchy but with a short kit I find I can control the fish.
6-8 1.4mm White ( not used it yet as its not winter! )
10-12 1.8mm Pink - Great for F1's with the odd carp ( Have had a low double )
16-18 2.4mm Green - I use this for carp 2-3lb shallow.
18-20 2.6mm Purple - Great for bagging on carp close, have use it for bags to nearly 400lb.
20-22 2.8mm Black - Only used it twise as I have just got it but seems good for 2-8lb carp often I have not touched the puller.
