Default What line is best for casting far?

Buying a new Penn spinning reel today, just wondering if anyone know of any fishing line around 12-15lb that is known for its casting distance. Thanks any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Also is it worth it to pay to have the reel spooled by the machine.

If you've got the money the braids are great. I don't spend that kind of money so I use Trilene Big Game amd I'm happy.

Fins Smooth Cast is great stuff. Think Hot Spots carries it but not sure, I use it on my baitcasters and its awesome.

pure casting..... the sufix mono with the red label. I use 10# for casting light crank baits on baitcasters.

I use Berkley Fireline braid in the Tracer color, 15lb. Changes color every so often and it is by far the softest, smoothest casting braid I have ever owned. Stuff feels like silk in your hands, and it is just as strong as powerpro! I can cast a 17mr mirrolure 25-35 yds easy, and a popping cork setup, forget that crap, it goes so far you can't see your cork!!!!!!
