Can anyone recommend a 10lb and 30lb fishing line?

When spooling on new line, you must remember It has to be under tension. Simply apply pressure between your thumb and middle finger is fine.
Once the spools full.
Wrap with an elastic and drop spool in sufficient size container of water for the night.
Line forms to the spool.

My Old Friend how are You ?
hope your staying healthy !
I actually agree with you,
NO, Tarpon, Tuna or Wahoo in Ontario ditches
“the billfish can’t turn around in narrow ditches”
Soaking spool in a bucket of water helps,
except loose line doesn’t magically tighten around your spool
couple springs ago my friend respooled his reel himself, soaked it & packed it away till next fall
next fall he tells me he just respooled this reel,
I immediately checked it & the spool of line was really soft, not hard packed at all.
he cast out a line on a drift, after about 150ft of line out everything else came out crimped,LOL
We couldn’t figure it out until we realized it was brand new line & remembered what he did last spring.
the packed line drying out crimped as it shrunk LOL
no big deal, We drove & unspooled his line,
then he reeled line back in while driving, this tightened up everything for him,
except his spool was only 3/4 full, LOL
had he pre wet the bulk spool this wouldn’t have happened.
Now he gets me to spool his reels with my line winder,
Elastics you say !
I use elastics for rigging offshore bait regularly
When Covid 19 ends we gotta go fishing together
