    Hey guys, was wanting to post something on this before, and believe there was something on mono I seen, but was curious about your thoughts on this. I wasn't really expecting to hear a 1-3 years, or at least 1

    Hello, I just recently bought a spool of 125yd 65lb super braid and the
    label looks dated compared to the others that I've purchased in the
    past. The inner spool is also white compared to black and the line
    itself is a lighter color. Well my question is, does braid have a shelf
    life? and or will this braid have the same strenth as newer spools?


    From Stren
    Hello Bryan,

    All braid has a shelf life of 1 to 3 years kept under good condition.
    Please store in a cool dry area.

    Happy Fishing

    Thats interesting, I thought braid was good for at least three years on your reel.

    I think the shelf life of both braid and mono is many years.
