Default That explains a lot....

I bought a spool of BPS Fluorocarbon 3 years ago and absolutely LOVED it. I bought a second spool the following year and replaced the old line on the same reels. I then proceeded to lose 4 spinner baits on the next two trips. They would just fly away on the cast. The line would snap and the lure kept going.

Hurt my feelings it did....and my wallet ! That line and those spinnerbaits were both "pricey" -- on the upper end of my budget limits for fishing gear.

After inspecting my rod tips and guides, I found nothing. I then decided that BPS had changed their manufacturing process and cheapened the line. Either way, I swore off of it forever. And after reading this, I see that they still have issues.
