head connection

When using a shooting head offshore what running line are you guys using? I was considering threading the 80lb Power Pro I use for backing up through 100ft or so of 50lb braided mono, nail knoting the Power Pro to the head, pulling the braid over it and coating the joint in Aquaseal. Or just making a loop with the Power Pro and the braided mono.

Looking at the 750 Leviathan for the TFO 14-17wt. Also considered the 1000 grain model. I would like to get it really loaded up, if its possible on that rod, and cast it 2 handed.

Any positive input would help.
