i would try braid...depending what type of water and fishing u r doing. It is very visible, but very strong and has little memory. If you use it on a spinning outfit, use 20 lb. power pro...it is the diameter of 6lb. mono. U can use a leader of some type to counteract the visiblility. I love it for topwater baits and anything that moves quickly....i.e less visible to fish. It floats, so not so good for crankbaits or jerkbaits. Also, it has very little stretch...so be careful on hooksets and while fighting fish...you can take it away from them!
