Just got a Penn 8000 series reel from a friend and need to spool it with line. I’m looking for recommendations on whether to use mono or braid and what lbs test. heading to the Keys this summer and We will mostly be using it for cuda and shark and maybe offshore for dolphin. 
line capacity on reel says 
Mono: 340/20 310/25 230/30 
Braid: 475/50 390/65 345/80
