    You should change your line a leat 2-3 times a year if you fish alot. I generally change my line before the start of the season in the spring, then in early summer and once in the fall. Sounds like a lot but fishing line gets a lot of abuse if you fish a lot. Not sure what most guys do but I dont want to loose a fish due to poor line. Besides monofilament isnt that expensive.

    you might be right bout mono not being expensive, but power pro sure is.. i can only afford to get "new" line once each spring.. however... about halfway through the year, ill take it from one reel to another to reverse it.. cheapest way i found to change line at halftime.. :wink:

    yeah i think it does.. logically, you usually wouldnt have more than half your line in the water at one time, so if you reverse it, i like to think its still "fresh".. this is just my opinion tony, so when that 300lb... uh... log.. breaks you off.. its not my fault..lol:smile2:
