Not sure how many yards mono topshot you want myself personally like between 100-200 yds this is just a guess but with 100# braid your looking at roughly 700+yds braid & 200 mono on a 50w I use power pro. hollow core is thicker & the numbers would be different. On 50w I use 600yds 150# power pro & 150yds mono topshot. Not that the 150# braid is necessary as far as fighting fish is concerned it's just the right amount yardage wise in my opinion

The momoi hollow is a good inexpensive option. If solid is OK I like the Daiwa J-braid.

I just went through this myself on nine 50w and 30W’s. I used Momoi gen 3 hollow core. Fairly affordable in bulk and I’m happy with it.

What you find about hollow core vs solid braid is the HC takes up more space. So it might cost more but after all filed and top shotted the HC costs same or even less. AND it lasts, and lasts, and lasts. Over a decade...... Energizer bunny can't even keep up.
