Best all around line conditioner?? Braid, mono, fluoro, co-poly....the whole shebang. What improves manageability, castability, memory, life etc..... Interested in some opinions. Read tons of promising things on the KVD brand but on the fence.

No doubt KVD, make sure you put in on before you fish so it can dry. I usually spray mine on the night before.

KVD L&L

 

I also like the Reel Snot with the java scent. The reels I use it on smell like a cup o' Joe.

KVD works awesome. I've used it on Seaguar Red Label/Invizx and Berkley 100%. I felt that it had more of an impact on the Berkley but overall I can't believe people don't use it. Easy way to save lots of money on line.

So if your looking around i will warn you that there is a product called reel magic.  It is not to be used on flouro and it even says so on the can...

KVD Line and Lure and here is why:

Line & Lure is a special polymer blend that becomes part of the fishing line it is applied to. Other line treatments you find on the market are primarily silicone oil and solvents. Silicone oil only temporarily coats the line and solvents can damage line. Silicone oil rapidly comes off the line (on your hands and in the water), requiring re-treatment of the line after just a few casts.

The special polymers in Line & Lure are hydrophobic (water repelling) and very slippery. It doesn't allow water to draw back on to the reel spool, which eliminates the line drag that a "wet" spool has. It also protects the line from wearing out as quickly as un-treated line because it resists the abrasion that wears line out.  It contains no oils or solvents as in Reel Magic that can build up and collect dirt like silicone/oil treatments will.

Kvd is all I use.  Mostly on flouro 

X2, but I use it on mono, too.

 

Do not use it on braid.

How do you guys apply the KVD line & lure when re spooling a reel with new line? Instructions say to spray a liberal amount on some synthetic cloth and run the line through the cloth as you re spool. But also says to re position the cloth every 10 to 15 yards. Seems like a PITB. Couldn't you just spray the reel spool every so often as you fill it up?

Yo BigTerp! I don't use a cloth when respooling.  I fill the spool halfway and spray it with KVD L&L, then again at 3/4 full, and finally when it is completely full.

 

The night before fishing trips I will spray the spool liberally and let it dry overnight.

I just soak the spool with a few squirts about every 20 turns of the handle.  Let it dry overnight.  After each trip, I hit the spools with a few squirts again.
