You should do some research on your mono. The news is not good. It degrades and loses significant strength (like half in the lower diameter stuff) over time even sitting on a spool on the shelf. I am cheap, but when I replace mono I replace it all. Dig around; there have been tests done that show this. Braid, OTOH, is all about use. It isn't very abrasion resistant; sand and rocks wear it out. But it can sit on a shelf for a life time.Wow! I am gonna have to try some of that stuff. I go through entirely too much line, albeit it is BPS mono. I only change out the first 100 yards or so, so that saves some dough. Good tips, thanks.
