    There is a very cheap ....and probably just as good variation on this which is widely used in the sewing machine industry called 'MECSIL' . I use it on fly lines and the result is ,the line flies through the guides like a rocket ......you will almost double your present casting distance.

    Hey TJ- When I was mainly fishing freshwater, I used a silicone-based conditioner on my mono, mostly when fishing in cold weather.

    It did help to keep limpness in the line.

    Much of spectra has a coating (teflon?), and maybe this stuff would help 'restore' the line after the coating wears off?
