I prefer McCoys xtra clear copoly for all my cranking. Great line at a great price, made here in the USA. I use 12lb for most all my cranking, unless I am throwing squarebills in and around thick cover (which I don’t do very often) then I’ll step up to 15 or 17 lb test.

16# Sunline Sniper on shallow cranks (6' or less) and squarebills.
12# Sunline Sniper on cranks deeper than 6'.
I fish around alot of grass, pads, and stumps when fishing shallow cranks and SBs.
Sniper is easy casting with excellent abrasion resistance and knot strength.

Sunline Sniper is hands down the best line I have found for Cranking. 12lb unless square billing around cover then I go up to 18lb. This stuff is tough too. I have however just spooled up with Trilene XL 12lb flouro to crank cause I got some on sale and have liked what I've got out of it so far. Very flexible and manageable.
