Does braided line deteriorate?
Braided line, when treated properly, can be used in the water for years. Monofilament and fluorocarbon do, however, come with what you might call a “shelf life.” Like meat and produce, even if you put it in the refrigerator, these lines will eventually go bad, even if they haven’t been taken out of the packaging.
What is better braided line or mono?
Braided lines are durable and more resistant to wear than mono lines. They are also better suited to deep-water fishing as they’re simultaneously thinner and heavier, cutting through the water to reach the bottom faster. It might take some getting used to for novice anglers to knot braided lines.
What is stronger braid or mono?
If woven correctly, using superior materials, braid is tougher and more durable than mono or fluoro of the same pound rating. It also comes in a variety of pigments and patterns, including camo. This offers an advantage when trying to fool fish in clearer water.
Should you soak braid before spooling?
The mono and tape are much softer than the spool therefore the braid beds into it, so in this case I would say no problem with going just with the braid. The first time my braid sees any water is when i cast it out, have never soaked braid and never had any issues from not doing it.
Is 10lb braid too much for bass?
On bass spinning reels, usually, anything over 10-12 lb monofilament or fluorocarbon is too heavy, impacting the performance of the bait and reel. Baitcasting reels are used for more heavy or reaction-strike applications. You can use line anywhere from 10 to 25 lb monofilament or fluorocarbon, and 30 to 80 lb braid.
How long will braided line last?
Some anglers say braided lines can last a lifetime. Though that’s not a certain thing, they can last for several years. Heavy fishers can change it 1 or even 2 times a year. Moderate fishers can change it once a year.
