Its got to be taper, due to a smaller knot to go easily through the rings, also the level wind if you have one.
I know its a bit more expensive and after saying that I don't use it mysel as I purchase all my line in 1/2 and 1 kg spoolls
keith :D :D

Always used Greased Weasel plain 50 lb meself with an Albright knot which is quite a tidy affair IMO. Once tried another SL recommended by tackle shop but crap compared with Greased Weasel. OK it's not the cheapest but pretty well lasts forever - I know I have one which is close to two years old.
