20 lb for Beachcasting is normally adequate for most situations, of course you will need a "shockleader" ie 6 oz weight 6 x 10 = 60 lb shockleader

Ive got 15IB on my reel and not had any problem,as long as you have the drag set to allow anything big enough take some line should be ok,(obviously depends where and what your fishing for though) dont forget the shock leader
