The spool of fluoro I recieved from cabellas yesterday seems shopworn, like it
has laid around a warehouse for a while. Would you return it or use it ?

Thanks

even when it is milky it retains good strength but loses it some of its stealth qualities. that however is the reason you buy flourocarbon....rick

I did some very unofficial testing a couple of winters ago. I had several spools of fluoro that were at least 3 years old, and testing them they broke at roughly 50% of their rated strength. As stated above, it had become opaque. Two year old stuff broke about 80%.

Now whenever I buy a spool, I get a sharpie and write the month/year on it so I know exactly how old it is. If you aren't sure, just test it!
