Funny I found this thread tonight. I bought 2 150 yd. spools just yesterday at Academy with expectations to spool both my spinning reels I normally use for shakey heads and drop shot techniques. I got a spool of 18# and 24#. I stripped my line down on both reels leaving about half of the mono as I expected to use it as backing. This stuff is so thin I used the entire spool of 24# on my 35 size Quantum and nearly all the 18# on my 25 size Shimano Sahara. I bought it in the white as I had watched the videos that states it turns near transparent in the water. I normally get green in mono and braid but wanted to try this stuff if it truly turned to a clear. I'll check that out tomorrow in the cement pond out back--Planning on a trip this weekend to a local lake that is FULL of small bass that eat up drop shot baits, so we'll see what happens.

Be sure to use the San Diego cinch knot or a double polymer because it is really slick but I love it.

Got my 1st roll over a year ago and just retired it, over 100 trips on it easy , the only reason retired was a nightmare backlash all my fault already replaced it with another spool, for me this is the best line I have ever used, I was told by Academy they were dropping it but they still have it, I sure hope they do not. The best casting line by far I have ever casted, I just wish it was cheaper. I tried white this time 40# but wish they had 50-65.

Academy did DC Gliss but some still have some reduced others not, looking for a new supplier, still for me the best I have tried, anyone compared it to PP Super Slick?
I praised Sufix 832 a lot but Gliss is better for me.

Got to compare the Slick PP yesterday to Gliss same rod and reel and lures, the PP is good I admit better than the original version but no way casted like the Gliss, I just wish it was cheaper and easier to find in stores.
You can increase the tension and brake to prevent problems more with it and it still casts better for me that is. I got over 100 trips with lots of larger fish on the 1st spool before I replaced it due to my fault of a backlash.

Ebay is the easiest the cost is the same on same size spools but they are much cheaper on yellow which I do not use.

Another 4 trips on the white line, the color is holding up better than the green did which changed to gray but lasted a very long time. I have some of the pink and translucent coming soon and will report on that as soon as I use it, all 40# test.

Monday's trip was over 200 fish from deeper water, the new spool of white is staying the same color and really casting great, I did have to retie the lure knot several times from sharp gill plates noticing fraying, beforehand I always try to break it and no breaks so far, it does even better casting with a spray of reel magic on it, I compared it 40# to 12# mono casted on an identical setup and the Gliss casted farther and really noticed a difference of feeling fish hit while jigging tail spinners verticle letting them flutter down. I will keep reporting on Gliss until this spool is history.
