That is a good point, and I will extend my replacement length. Thanks!Why cut and splice at a hundred yards? Average trips I always dump 200 yards using a line counter, if it was a real long soak trip, or lots of needlefish, run ins with cutting edge hooks, marlin, dorado, triggerfish, etc.
Spectra has a lot of enemies. I buy in bulk, and don’t think twice about dumping the top 200 or 300 yards and splicing new in.
The part that has me nuts is that when the spectra has broken (thus far), it has been within about 20 feet of the hook. Every time. It could be coincidence, but I feel like there's something going on. I've gotten a little obsessive about looking at the line, but I never spot a flaw.
