    I bought many rolls of sufix igfa copolymer line ( i used and liked the line a lot, very lasting in saltwater)

    It was a renovation sale and was really a bargain i could not resist. Looks like it will be a long time before i can finish them. would the line be damaged? I keep them under my bed, totally dark and cool.

    This is a copolymer line and not the mono. It seems to have a much better durability when compared to mono.

    What should i do ?

    Under the bed sounds fine, but I would also wrap them up in a couple of plastic grocery bags or put them in a big tupperware container, something like that.

    I did the same thing, a few years agao a sporting goods store was going out of business and was sellinig BIG bulk spools of line cheap so a buddy and I bout a few (I got one, he bought several). I keep the spool wrapped up in 2 layers of plastic bags and even though it's probably 5 years old, it's just like new.

    As long as you kep them in a dark, dry place away from heat sources, they should be fine.

    On mono and floracarbons (I would say braid also) direct sunlight and heat are there WORST enemies for sure! :eek:oooh:I would say that your line will be fine, make sure that you dont have any mice!:smile2:I know some "anglers" that keep there spare line in there tackle box and it stays in there boats, even on those 100 degree days! :tounge_out:

    Anything with nylon in it you wet and freeze then take out and allow to dry it is now much tougher.
