    Weight depends on the speed and strenght of the flow mate. Not on the breaking strain of the line.

      I guess you mean to cast without cracking off? Depends how far you're casting but 4oz might be ok but you'll probably be able to get away with less, maybe 2oz. Just cast out and if the feeder keeps rolling add some weight gradually untill it holds. Its ok if it rolls now and again then stops. Just use the minimum possible to hold and I would use 5lb line as it creates less drag in the water and should be strong enough to land most fish. You can get away wit a 0.22 hi tec hookength with 5lb Maxima or similar reel line.
