I use 200# Dacron filled to 3/4" of full spool. 1 skein (100 ft.) of 200# Jinki 2 fathoms up inside the Dacron. A 350# Spro. then 1 1/2 fathoms of 200# Seaguar floro. Have been doing that since they came out with Floro. before that the 200# top shot would go right to the hook. Since going with floro. and the swivel i changed my bomb to 1/2" tubing and flair the end to slide down without hanging up on the swivel. Works for me.
