P-line Flouroclear or FLourocarbon, or Vanish flourocarbon. The flourocarbon lines are invisible underwater (they also sink so you can use less weight), so you can go a little heavier. They also have NO memory and very little stretch so line twist is a thing of the past. I don't like them on casting gear though, I have found that they can snap easily on a hookset because of their lack of stretch. A spinning rod usually has a little more flex that cushions the line on a hookset and virtually elimating the problem. I use 10-12 lb Flouroclear on my spinning tackle where I used to use 6-8 lb mono.
