Lets talk topshotting for jigging and popping. I've noticed that there's a pretty wide range of methods in use out there and I'm interested in the how and why folks do what they do (especially if it's radically different from what I do). So jump in here with some techniques and theories behind the madness. My method: 50-60 lb spectra w/ topshot of 10-15 ft of 80-100 lb test mono 80 lb spectra same as above w/ 100-150 lb test mono The topshot is attached w/ a midknot Preferred mono is Jinkai Leader Material in clear, this stuff is awesome because it's very flexible and holds its knots really well, in fact I've never had a knot fail on it. I nearly always overtest my TS relative to the spectra, primarily for abrasion resistance. Don't feel that the heavy stuff has ever adversely affected my bite. I even like to cast the 6in yo-zuri bonitas at tuna, and the heavy mono doesn't seem to hurt that either. Don't like flouro for jigging a popping because of the stiffness. All that said, jigging during the day for tuna may require a flouro topshot, just haven't done it enough to know.
