80 is about the same diameter as 30 mono and is more flea proof.

Just remember to put a bead in front of the swivel that goes to your leader so when the diver slides down it has something to bump into that's not a knot!

I do 40 lb cheap 4 carrier braid to 50’ of 30 mono that the diver runs on then bead then swivel then flasher. I like the mono for the stretch and the slide diver locks on well. Power pro is really nice line but I cannot justify the expense when the cheapest I can by has not caused a problem yet.

30# 7 Strand Wire, 2’ section of 65# PowerPro, 50’ of 30# Fluorocarbon, bead, swivel. Leader material is Fluorocarbon, weight depends on target fish. With the diver on the #2 setting and a large #3 ring, you’ll get 3:1 dive ratio. I tested this with a Fish Hawk TD and it is very accurate. Join the piece of 65# braid to the wire and 30# Fluorocarbon with an Alberto Knot!

Have had 80 spooled for the last ten years. Went to buy new braid and the 80 only came in 300 yard spools.
Bought 100 lb, same diameter as 20 lb mono. It is 500 yards per spool. Will be putting it on this week.

Going to try this 80lb powerpro for the slide diver and see how it works out.  Btw they have 300 yard spoils of 80lb super slick powerpro at Sierra trading post for 20$ a spool.

do you splice to a piece of mono or just tie directly to your leader connection?
