I think you're over thinking this a bit. Anything semi stiff will do the job fine. Just personal preference as to whether you use a coated hooklength or fluro and then what version of each takes your fancy

I use tricklink or esp tungsten

The ESP stuff is the best coated braid I've ever used. Banging stuff.

I've always used ntrap semi stiff and do love it but does curl up slightly and is really light so probably give the loaded a go

I think so. It holds its shape better, the coating doesn't bunch and twist as easily so you don't get weird kinks in the rig, it sinks way better as well. Maybe have a go with both and see what you think? 1

Normal fluro is fine, as are any semi still hooklinks. I think that korda boom might be too stiff.

Esp tungsten loaded semi stiff is perfect imo. That and a size 4 mugga!
