I have been using Seaguar Invizx fishing line for a number of years and have been incredibly satisfied with its performance. Having said that, a few years ago I purchased a bulk spool off Ebay. It was horrible. I wouldn't bet my life on it but I felt like it was a counterfeit. I did notice that it was not as I will desribe it "mechanically" wound like all the other spools that I had gotten. I just received a new 1000 yd spool sold by Amazon and it is wound the same way. I am concerned. Flourocarbon is so darn expensive, I love getting a good price but sure don't want to be purchasing a fradulent product. Anyone have any credible information regarding this type of thing? I had hoped that Amazon might be more reliable!

Thanks!

I had bad luck with some stuff I got off of ebay also. I broke several times on hook set, took it all off and started over.

Probably Vanish on an InvizX spool

Well that is good to know that bulk spools no longer have "level winding". However, I still have some concerns about counerfeit line in general.

Thanks!

Drop a note, an email, to the company and ask them if they are aware of any counterfeiting of their lines.

I know it is being done in other areas and EBay is a common avenue for delivery. I believe it all started with wristwatches and has devolved from there.

Here's an old video of your problem and how to tell fake from genuine.

With just about anything I order on Amazon, I get an email from the seller within a few days asking for feed back. That may be an opportunity to discuss your concerns with them.
