I'm currently using 4 lb power pro with a Seagur fluoro 6 lb leader and quick snaps but I want to switch to all flouro or all hybrid and start tying directly to the lure. Any personal favorites?

Good discussion on the subject here: Line choice thread

P-Line Fluoro Coated 8 lb. I love it. It’s picky about your knot of choice however.

I've used this for the last 2 years and love it too. Super strong , doesn't even break easily when I get snagged in a branch. Almost never get tangles or birds nests and seems to have no memory . What knot so you prefer NBrevitz?

It depends on the guage of the wire on the spinner. For Salmon, I’ll always do a palomar knot. It’s better than any clinch or trilene knot, and fluorocarbon slips a bit easier to begin with. If I’m using the 6 lb, I always run a palomar. If I’m catching a bunch of small-medium sized Trout, I’ll run a clinch knot if I’m rocking 8 lb.
And yes, there’s no memory and it sinks like a rock, so you can run small presentations like jigs much more efficiently. The only area where this is an issue is float fishing for Salmon or Steelhead, but it makes great leader material in that sense!
