fly line breaking strength

I've read some reports on fishing for BBFT in which the fly line broke. I know we had some data somewhere on the board about fly line breaking strength but I can't seem to find it with a search. The search showed anywhere from 16# for a 9wt line (which suprises the heck out of me) to a general estimate of 30#. That 30# concerns me as I was planning on using 40# flourocarbon for my tippet. I've got a 14wt line but I don't know the brand off the top of my head - I think it is SciA.
