I bought some of this braided line yesterday. Now i must say that im not a big fan of this stuff due to the increadible amount of the stuff ive snagged while fishing various places. Its like this stuff dosent biodegrade for a long time, if ever! I fish a local spot wher the bottom is full of rocks and gravel along with who knws what else. I got a bit tired of replacing my line every 3rd or 4th fishing trip due to the abrasive wear from the bottom of the dam. My guess is most folks use the braided lines thinking they can land moby dick, but dont realize theyll most likely have to cut the stuff once snagged. So i decided to try out the 30# test braided spiderwire with a 17# mono leader. It seems to be working good, the only thing i lose is the mono leader and my hook with the elimination of abrasive wear from the rocky bottom. My barrel swivel and egg sinker remain intact and cant argue the knot strenght one bit! Dose anybody have any yays or nays theyed like to share?
