mono line recommendations

Need to restock on line and get my reels spooled up for the year -- anyone have suggestions?

Last year I went with 8lb Stren suffix siege (very thin and doesn't get coiled up easily -- ... 008DNVB3G/). Probably going to be hitting up the SJ reservoirs and ponds a lot, and thinking of possibly going with 10lb line this year, the 8 was nice but felt a little light for cranks and the like. What do y'all use?
Every try braid? Zero line memory alone is worth spooling up a reel with some braid and seeing if you like it!
I've used braid on a baitcaster but never on spinning gear. does it work reasonably on spinning?
I use 15lb power pro on my spinning setup and it works great.
