BUYERS BEWARE:

I recently received some counterfeit Seaguar InvizX line from Amazon.com (That's fake line for those of you in Rio Linda)
I notified Amazon and they promptly issued me a credit, but I wanted to post a warning on TFF because the seller is still active on Amazon.
The fakes are easy to spot if you are a regular buyer of Seaguar in 1000yd spools. I have identified several discrepancies between the counterfeit line and genuine Seaguar that I will list below next to the photos. However, the easiest way to identify the fake is to pay attention to how the line is wound on the spool. Genuine Seaguar line will be wound perfectly on the spool and will be held in place with a Seaguar sticker. There will also be a sticker on the plastic cover surrounding the spool. If you receive a spool without a plastic cover, and the line is uneven and overlapping itself (basically it looks like it was spooled without a machine), it is a fake. Other identifiers include:
1. No plastic cover for the spool.
2. The label is not the same size as the spool (the spool's circumference is greater than the label's circumference)
3. The label does not have the "Level Wind Technology" logo at the bottom right of the logo
3. The text on the label is fuzzy or out of focus

FAKE SPOOL ON THE LEFT

I also received a "counterfeit" 1000 yd spool of Seaguar Abrazix from Amazon. Same features as above, label smaller, no Seaguar tag on line and no "level wind decal" on spool. Should have known, price was $40 less expensive than BP. Amazon refunded money with no problem.

Did Amazon ask you to ship it back to them?

Could it be a type of quality reject from factory?

Did you call or e-mail Seagar customer service?

you need to search the thread's on the bass fishing page. I'm pretty sure that is legit line since they are no longer level winding the bulk spools. there was a thread about that a month or so back.

Yep, it’s been posted many times that they are no longer using the levelwind technology. Even some spools from tackle warehouse are coming this way to guys who bought it.

Wonder why they stopped level winding them? Production time maybe?

Thats what I was thinking. Last big spool I got from Tackke Warehouse wasn’t levelwind either. If you got to keep the line plus got refunded you came out way ahead in that deal.

Contacted Tackle Warehouse and they said they get their line directly from Seaguar and Seaguar quit level winding but he was unaware of the other things listed. I called Seaguar but had to leave a voicemail about the other problems. Recording said they will call me back asap.

Have you seen the burn test video on Youtube to show real vs fake?

^^^Legit test to see if it's fluorocarbon line. Mono lights on fire.


Hatred corrodes the container it's carried in.

What’s funny is how so many think it’s counterfeit due to stickers. Go use it!
