I have several reels with 10 yo line on them. I have not experienced any issues besides colorloss.
Thanks.

Re: How long does braid last

I end us losing a decent amount of my line to a snag most of the time, so for me I prolly swap line after a year at the most. Since I began using a short 20 lb fluoro leader, I don't lose braid. Just whatever I lose when I retie my leader. If I get hung up and can't get it back, I tie my line off t...

Re: How long does braid last

Sounds worn out to me. I use thinner braid than most, 30lb for spinnerbaits, chatterbaits & 1/2 oz jigs on heavy rods, and I replace it or at least reverse it annually on combos that see frequent use. For lighter combos I typically use 10 - 20lb braid. 50lb is reserved for swimbaits up to 2.5 oz. A...

How long does braid last

I have several reels with the original Stren Sonic braid on them, the braid that first said it stayed round. It must be close to 15 years old, and it's on spinnerbait setups that get fished a lot. It is 50 lb test. I use a short 20 lb fluoro lead, and retie often, so I replace and retie the leader o...

Re: Does the Curado K or DC have an aluminum gear options

Taking that weight off will throw the balance up the rod more negating the weight difference. :roll: A heavier balanced combo is better than a lighter unbalanced rig. I typically balance my setups right in the middle of the reel seat, so the weight of the reel isn't that critical. Given that a ligh...

Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

Yeah..Let's keep the politics out of it. Go to Politico or Breitbart and express yourself. (although I must say this is a more cognisant conversation than thier comment section) I already think lessor of people now and I only wanted that to be based on their bad opinion pertaining to tackle. I even...

Re: Does the Curado K or DC have an aluminum gear options

Personally I have gladly added a little weight to a dozen baitcasters I own to swap out the aluminum main gear for one in brass. The increase in the smoothness of the retrieve, the reduction in the need for relubing, and the increase in the life of the reel itself, more than make up for the small in...

Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

Let's all just keep being smart. Someone else posted that we should act as though we had the virus, and want to be sure we don't spread it to others. I think that's a great approach. Personally, I don't want anyone else to become infected, let alone die, because I was too selfish to think of them, t...

Yeah I called minn Kota and it’s toast. I pulled out my multimeter and tested my battery as well as the charger. The charger was surging crazy high. It lasted over ten years. Was a good run.
Ten years! I'd say you got your money's worth out of it. =D>
