I bought this line with a reel . When it arrived I was eager to go out and try my new setup . It was a GREAT line and handled very well . I was casting between 25 and 30 feet with no issues when, the line frayed and the core broke , but the coating did not . The line was faulty . I sent it back to Airflo and they were very cooperative and will replace it . But , they did make me pay for the return shipping . The line was EXCELLENT and did very well , it just had a major issue . I'm sure not all airflo lines are faulty but mine was . I would buy airflo lines again if I ever get a new reel .
