Depends on the size of fish.

0.13mm ,0.15mm or 0.17mm should see you right for all your commercial needs

Sensor is reasonably thick for the breaking strain compared to some other reel lines. This doesn't matter as long as it doesn't inhibit your casting.

Powerline is a pre-stretched mono designed for pole rigs and hooklengths. It is roughly 0.02mm thicker than stated.

Work on the b/s.

powerline; 0.13mm = 4 lb 12 oz
0.15mm = 5 lb 14 oz
0.17mm = 6 lb 12 oz


Have you ever tried putting 6 lb of pressure on a fish through a rod and reel?
There's an experiment for you. It's bloody hard.[:0]

These hooklengths will see you right for most commercial work.

In certain situations then 6 lb sensor straight through would be better. I'm thinking of snaggy pegs where the "brittleness " of a pre stretched mono hooklength will be a distinct weakness.
