i don't know what conditions you cast in, but i never use more than 30lb.unless you start with a big jolt from the ground or whatever, you don't need a heavy leader. if you have 20lb line and 80lb shocker, if you get hung up, the only thing you break is your line.

Hey TONYQ, I like to fish with Sufix 20lb. Hi-Vis and use Sufix 50lb. as my leader. At the tournament casting last year in Crisfield, MD.; from what I saw; they had a spool of 50lb./60lb. and a spool of 80lb.that the casters could use. 80lb.leader material is pretty heavy stuff. It makes for a bigger knot when you tie it to the running line which gives it a better chance of hitting the eyes when you throw. A smaller leader would be easier to tie your running line to, also. Just my .02 pelican man
