I wish, I still have to earn my money, Nice thought though haha, Have you heard of spider wire shatter, This is what happens when you cast and get a crack off, It shatters the line for about 20 feet, This means if you dont trim about 20 feet off after a crack off it could and most likly will happen again, Gordy burton told me about this as he was sponsered by the company for years, And i think it was Andy mac that reminded me about it, the guy is full of fishing knowledge and more than enough in expierience Wink

in my 3rd season with it paddy. its more jerkbaiting i'm not happy with. once the coatings of it, it just fluffs up and can catch on its self. and thats on a multi.
bait fishing its ok. i'd draw the line at that.

If its just the last 20 or 30 feet try using some dubbing on it, Just stops it from frizzing,

what many of you dont realise is all these braids are made from the same stuff, none of them have different properties to the other, dyneema and spectra filaments dont differ in quality.
if you buy 50lb braid and it breaks at 35 so what!!!! its still twice as strong as 15lb mono and probably thinner as well.
believe it or not these braids were originally made for flying kites.
beware of cheap power pro-- look on their website and they will tell you how to spot far eastern copies that DO let you down.
if you braid is going fuzzy check your rings, not all of them are braid friendly,
its the first few feet take all the hammer so just trim it back if it starts going fuzzy.
Do not clean your reels with anything with solvents in--- not braid friendly

Everyone recomends power pro, But at the end of the day they are all made of the same stuff, Worth a go

hi kev. the braids went funny around 40yds into the spool. had the same bother with the last batch aswell. looks like its unwound its self. the rings on the rod are for braid so should be ok there. i've no probs with the strenth kev more the unwinding.

If the level wind has a sharp piece of metal on it when you pull out about 40yard i think you said, This would account for the fuzzing on the line, Well worth checking out ?
