I think it's finally time for me to pull the trigger and hit the big pond with my own boat. I have a decent collection of spoons to start along with a couple dipseys, which I plan to use with the s-biner rig. Currently I have 3 penn 209 reels, one penn 3## (just got it, don't recall), and one abu garcia 6000. Ideally I'd like to get two more so I could run two boards and four dipseys, or two boards, two dipseys and two with snap weights, with maybe something down the chute.
With the reels I have, I was thinking braid with mono backing. Now the question is what kind? Power Pro seems to be the king, but any opinions for Sufix 832 or Cabela's Rip Cord? Also, how big a factor is the color of the line? Cabela's has a 1500 yard spool of 40lb power pro for $92, but only red and yellow. I was thinking green would be best, but can easily be persuaded otherwise. I was leaning toward 40lb over 30lb, but is there really any reason to be concerned about 30lb braid not being sufficient?
Also, is there any issue with using 209s with lead core?
