Since there has been several discussion on Braid fishing line, types, strands, and brands, I always wondered how long it will last? I know some people wash their brain annually and even reverse it on their reels. While other only rinse it off. I know some just strip off the top 100 yard and splice fresh braid on. So without any nicks, or damage, how long will it really last. Especially for those who may fish less than 30 days a year? And do you strip the entire reel and spend the $ on new braid or just splice?
