Hey guys,

How often do you replace fishing line on your reels? What are the signs you look for to decide you need to re-spool your reel with new line?

  • Mono
  • Braid
  • Flouro

Mono and flouro when it has too much memory or seems to break easily, braid badly ever that stuff stay good for a while it just looses its color

When I used mono, I replaced every 3 months regardless of use to prevent too much memory development. I no longer use mono, I use PowerPro braid on everything, except the downrigger rods are the strike causes a horrific amount of tension and I use Big game on that line only.
