Default Braided line question

If I normally use 20 lb mono line for bottom fishing, what superbraid line would be equivelent to 20 lb. test mono? Or what superbraid line would be good for Fluke fishing?

if you are asking what diameter is eqivalent to 20# mono you are probably looking at close to 100# braided depending on the maker of the line. 20# power pro is 6# diameter
