These reels can work great with braid as well as monofilament lines from all top manufacturers. We personally recommend using braid as the mainline on top of some mono backing to use to stick to the spool and to fill the base layer of the spool with mono so you can save money on the braid.
Our 2 favorite lines for the Slammer IV DX is Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand and PowerPro. in the 10 lb to 30 lb range depending on what species you're targeting.
