I read years ago a qoute from KVD that he used silicone spray  on his line and reels. A few years go by and products like line and lure are on the market. I have an aerosol can of this spray and it does make things a lot slicker after spraying it. Has anyone used it on their reels? Seems like a cheaper alternative.

KVD Line and Lure is all I use on my lines.

IMO, it is cheap and helps with manageability.

The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

Yeah me too it's a good product, I'm pretty much out of the L+L and was just wondering if it was worth trying out. If there was no real diffrence between the 100% silicone and L+L then why not? Hunting season is here and the fishing budget is pretty low 8-), so every little bit helps.

There's a pretty big difference between silicone spray and L&L.

Silicone spray (WD40, Reel Magic...) actually slightly degrades mono. That's why it relaxes the memory and makes the line easier to manage to some degree. They use a petroleum distilate to thin the oil to make it spray. I would not let these sprays anywhere need bearings the inside of a reel.

From what I understand, KVD Line & Lure coat the line and bond with it to enhance managability.

Might seem that way now, but in the long run it will eventually cost you to have the reel serviced and lubricated properly.... :D

I would not let these sprays anywhere near bearings or the inside of a reel.

None of them! :)

I was highly skeptical of L&L. I started having some casting difficulties with my Revo spooled with Sufix Siege due to the line coiling. I cast it out in the yard, sprayed the spool, reel in a bit, repeat until done. Gave the spool one more soak and let the rig sit overnight.

I gotta say it worked way beyond my expectations.

I've used reel magic for a while. Didn't really seem to make a difference. I did have a non boater in a tournament spray his lures with WD40, like it was attractant. He did catch a few. :)

I use ReelMagic with my spincast & underspincast reels that have powerpro and it makes quite a noticeable difference in casting ease-distance. Without the spray the coating on the line would build-up on the catch pins then cause sticking. One quick spray every few outings does the trick.
Dont use it on my baitcasters or spinning reels though or for lube of bearings.

Line and Lure is a water based polymer that bonds to your line as stated previously. Most other products are petroleum based and only coat the line. If you use them on your line and put the line in the water, you can see a "slick" on the water from the coating coming off. Not only does L&L bond to the line, it will not harm your reels or the environment. It is very high in UV protection and because it bonds to the line, the polymer coating wears before your line does, which increases the longevity of your line.

    I did a little more research, and after looking at some MSDS's it appears some silicone sprays could have a use (adhere to nylon type products (line) , repel water, enviro friendly, reduce binding and memory, etc.) KVD doesnt specify in his book which one he used, so who knows?
   Others make me nervous to use at all, lol. There really is a big diffrence and a good reminder to know what chemicals your using.

DVT-- I discovered that alot of sprays actually have acetone in them, which is what degrades line, paint, etc.

WD40 is a petroleum based solvent / penetrator.  Not really a lubricant.
