I have filled both my reels with 15lb black f1 line, didnt have bugger all but that was due to a seal in front of us :( . On the up side it casts well ;)

Just as a different perspective, I have tried a couple of spools of it from different stockist and I have found it wirey, weak on knot strength and nasty to fish with. Abrasion resistance could have been another factor as it snaps fairly easily on rough ground. I personally rate it's stable-mate red ice as a much better line but many people would disagree.
I am currently using Suffix Tritanium which I have found excellent.
Mono is very personal and I think you will have to try a few before you find one that will suit your needs.
