Whats some of you guys favorite line for Kings on the pier in 15lb. As ive always used ande but am looking to make a switch as ande is extremely thick and I feel like I'm losing some capacity on 706 due to the thickness

Personally I have my 706 loaded with Power Pro 15# high vis yellow with 100 yards of 15# Ande as backing. I know a lot of guys get irritated with people throwing braid, but that paired up with my Fenwick makes for some pretty long casts with just a frozen cig.

Pier...Trilene big game.

I used to use Ande pink. But they changed the formula. Now it seems like it is stiffer, thicker and worse line memory.

I have always used 15Lb Ande Backcountry or Sufix Superior I have never lost a king to the line physically breaking but have lost plenty to them cutting the line, going under the pier, or them cutting the steel leader because I pick a leader to small. Both Ande Backcountry (.4mm) and Sufix Superior (.016) are the same size.

Agree with Brandon: Ande Back Country 15# casts best and is flexible, of the Ande styles. Available at Half-Hitch, Navarre. I like blue. IMO.

Default Two lines you might try.

Berkley Pro Spec and Cabelas Salt Striker. Both are soft and fairly strong.
