Bps line conditioner

I used the bps version for one season a couple years ago and I was pretty happy with it.  I think the kvd conditioner seemed slightly better overall but the bps conditioner did a good job for the price difference too.

We need a chemist to analyze the specific makeup and tell us if it’s the same as KVD ;)

Honestly this. 

Most of us know that motor oil is produced by the same companies and re branded for sale. Same with batteries. I'd bet a signed dollar that this is no different. Maybe a SLIGHT different formula. Even breweries re label their booze for other companies to sell as their own.

I use KVD and have for the last 10 years, but I did try BPS line conditioner last year and found it to be greasy, which means it is loaded with silicone, which, of course, washes off. KVD is polymers which are hydrophobic and permeates the line.  It won't wash off.

If it dont wash off, then why does it need reapplied so often like so many of of do? Just curious.

Whether one calls it washing off or wearing off KVD does lose its effectiveness fairly quick. Funny illustration; I use it on our mini blind cords to make them slick again and after a couple of months it wears away. Personal experience has shown it to be beneficial on my braid and mono. The best solution to the cost is to buy it in larger quantities, TW sells it in gallons.

I only reapply KVD about every fourth trip on the river the day before I fish.  This keeps the hydrophobic feature ( water repellant)up to snuff. It does not wash off, but it does wear off.
