Check out United Composites GP series. This season I've been fishing the Reaper with 30 and 40 lbs leader and the GP90 Mega with 15-25 lbs leader, unfortunately I have not hooked up a tuna bigger than 50 lbs. I assume you spooled your reel with spectra?, that will give you the flexibility to fish a range of leaders from 15 to 50 lbs. Consider the GP90 Mega if you are fishing primarily 15-30 leader, the GP90 Reaper for 30-50 leader or the GP90 Monster for 40-60 leader.

Good rod to reel pairing....wrong mono topshot imho... 40 minimum.
