I just purchased a Breakaway/Penn 525TMag setup and I was wondering what type of line would work best on this setup, any suggestions. Thanks in Advance.

The reel calls for 15 lb mono. I would ask the Distance Casting forum guys on whether or not they have any preferences with regards to manufacturer or size/type.

I avoid braid on all my conventional reels.

I have a 525 slide mag. I use 15-17 pound test on it and generally avoid throwing over four ounces with it.

It has a small spool and if you use heavier line you'll have almost no capacity for fighting fish.

depends on the fishing. 15lb is is great, but if you go for bigger fish you may want to go to 20. it's rated for 275 yds of 15lb. but you will probably get 225 of 20. i use them for drum[red] and do just fine.
