If you are going to limit yourself to Shimano, Invisitec is good if a little pricey.

I respooled my reels some 20 months ago for the 18/19 season. Normally it's been Daiwa sensor for my Tench and Bream fishing but I saw the Shimano specimen line at much the same price so bought a spool on a whim.
I had a few mid sized Tench using it and to be honest I would have no reservations using it on the Trent when out fishing for Barbel.

Would you also recommend the Diawa hyper sensor ??
