Ester mono.

How small is your rod and how light is your line? It's not about the size of your tackle, but how you work it. Come share your Ultralight fishing success here!

I wonder if it will work better for bfs....
Ester is very stiff. I think it would be a bad choice for BFS. It just wants to spring off the spool.
I don't know, I think casting reels handle stiff lines better than spinning reels, which is one reason why people prefer braid for spinning. However a true BFS rod, i.e. intended for bass, will likely be far too stiff for any ester line. On a custom casting build using a trout spinning blank I think ester would be awesome.
Give it a try and let us know. My baitcasting skills just aren't up to the challenge. Also, no need to go custom. The Kuying Teton line of rods have a nice moderate action. Very much trout rods. High quality and affordable.
