In long kits ( 2.3m )
I find double Preston slip in 5 / 6 / 8 can cover 95% of my commercial fishing (double 6 is most used).
16 latex atm for edge (but will change to NG Ultra core 2.4mm)
In Short Kits (1.75m) ( all NG Ultra core )
Light (Silvers(4oz+)+F1's) - 1.4mm
General work (Avg 1-4lb) - 1.8mm ( For Mixed fisheries I use this have had doubles on it but not ideal for big fish)
Light edge / heavy shallow - 2.0mm
General work (Avg 4-10lb) - 2.4mm
heavy edge/bagging - 2.6mm or 2.8mm

For 5 kits I would go
1x double 5 , 2x double 6, 1x double 8, 1x 2.6 ultra core
or
1x 1.4mm, 2x 1.8mm, 1x 2.0mm ( maybe 2.2 but not used it myself) , 1x2.6mm
