Platypus low-stretch from ebay.
What poundage (or diameter) ideally looking for?
Drennan supplex fluoro is excellent for light ledgering (6lb) I use for my Chub fishing and it gives a good ping to the hook from distance.
Braid is a good alternative on the reel but you need to be confident of or give care to knowing the tolerance of your wet knot strength/s when using braid, as this stuff can and will slip off at the swivel if not tied correctly..of learning an albright special you can use braid as a reel line and have fluoro or low stretch mono as your hooklink (just an idea 💡).

The best I have used is Shimano Technium.

It has very low stretch, approx 10%m, very little "memory" and high knot strength. . . .

It is not cheapest line out there, but then the best rarely is . . . . and you might have to seek it out as not all shops carry it.

The one with the least stretch I have tried myself would be drennan double strength.
