I would like to know if there are any mono lines out there that are thin in diameter and heavy enough to avoid break offs without using a shock leader...

I have a 11'6" RS 1385f and am getting a 13'6" CTS 5-8oz tomorrow and I have 6500CTMags for both..Thanks

You can get some 40 lb flourocarbon, that helps.

I use 20 & 40 in the mangroves.

Size depends on the target/possible species.

On the beach, I use 50 lb Ande mono for my heavers using a uni/uni knot.

What I was thinking was are there any mono lines that are strong but thin so that I would not have to tie a shock leader?

In short, no.

In long, if you have x sum of money, there is a product for you.

I have some 40 lb, I think 20 yards and it set me back about $30.

I'll have to look for it. I'm thinking it is Trilene (Flouro).

But I only use it for very specific applications in FL.
