Ever had one of those products that you just can't get away from? Maybe it has one or two negative characteristics, but enough positive characteristics that you can't find anything else to replace it, and you can't just stop using it?

 

I feel that way about Gliss line. I jumped on the first opportunity to use it back when it first became available. I LOVED the casting distance. It blew me away. But then I realized its biggest shortcoming - it's lack of toughness. I don't fish over wood much, and rocks or shellbeds aren't usually something I frequently encounter, but I still noticed a bit of fraying from the teeth of the fish. No problem, I'd cut it off, retie, and move on. Over a couple of seasons I thought "Well, I'll try something else more durable" and tried a few different lines, all with good luck of course, but I just still kept finding myself hitting the "Checkout" button with Gliss in my cart. I can't seem to say no to that stuff. To me, the benefits of massive casts (me being a predominantly shore fisherman) are the top priority. Maybe other folks can't say the same. I know if I fished heavy wood or rocks I would have a different opinion. But so far they have me....."hooked"

As far as line goes, p-line cxx. I know there are better casting and more manageable lines out there. But like you said, I always end up with some in my cart

My experience with Gliss is the exact opposite.  After trying it once I just "can't say yes!". :wacko:

I like it a lot.  I've had to work through a couple small challenges, mostly wind-related....and I've just received some hi-vis yellow, because the olive is nearly invisible to me....but, it has been very good to/for me.  I'm a fan.

 I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread at first but quickly became disappointed with it. Have actually been quite impressed with the Kastking stuff I learned about on here. The Mega 8 is as good as some 8 carriers costing much more and it's quiet.  Just wish it came in green. I have trouble seeing the black and the chartreuse is a concern because I  don't tend to use leaders.
