I had a chance to try this
line out over the holidays. This line is...
really smoooooth! I must say that the name play is on target. I
have been using a copolymer line, P-Line
that has worked very well for me the past two seasons. However I
needed to do reel maintenance and also had a short spool to refill.
This was a good time to try the IronSilk
I had seen in a magazine's 'new product' listings.
I planned to put the line on two baitcasters and a spinning reel.
The baitcasters would drop from 10# to 8# while the spinning outfit
would remain at #6. The primary objective in changing the line was
increased casting distance. After asking a Bass Pro associate if
he had any experience with the line he mentioned that casting distance
was greatly increased. He also used a spray on line treatment.
It was apparent as soon as I began to spool the line that there
is little line memory. The line 'felt' solid, substantial even for
the small diameter of the 8# test. When adding my fluorocarbon leader
the line made a very compact knot (I used an Albright) and was easy
to tie with the line texture.
The very first cast with the spinning outfit got my attention. As
the line spilled off the spool I heard nothing. I would expect to
hear some noise as the line came off the spool and out through the
guides. Nothing. Certainly an indication that resistance was at
