I sometimes put 30# braided Dacron on, even for the smaller rods but I see no reason 20# braided Dacron wouldn't work well on a smaller rod. A lot depends on the size of the reel. I think if you get 100yds on that is enough.

Here are some numbers that might be of interest to you.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
