Mono line for Abu 7000?

I fish from the breakwalls, jetties and beaches for mulloway with an Abu 7000 and custom built fsu 5120( among other outfits) and am wondering peoples opinions on wich brand of line they prefer for fishing with overheads from the shore. In the past i have used penn 10x, platypus platnium and super 100 and berkley trilene big game. All the lines have worked well, just chasing others opinions and experiences... i usually dont fish with over 10kg or 15kg mainline. any feedback would be great. cheers.

Berkley Big Game is the best, my fav indeed!

Landed me plenty of marlin, sailfish, mulloway, snapper, salmon, sharks and many more....rapt with the quality and reliability!

Would have to agree with you

Would have to agree with you Ryan on the berkley Big Game its never let me down so far.. probably be what i stick with for use on the abu 7000, was just wondering if there may be a smoother casting line out there? i came across another berkley line a number of years ago that was called Iron silk, is it still available? cheers.

Berkley!

Iron silk isnt available anymore, they have the Trilene XL smooth casting line which has a smaller diameter & better cast than the Biggame but a hard one to break away from the Biggame performance!
