What are the best conditions to store line in?

Recommended Posts

Hey all...

I usually buy line as I need it (flouro/braid). I have a chance to stock up on some line at a great price but have never stored it over the winter.

Recomendations, comments, ideas??? :D

cool, dry & dark for mono/fluoro.  an indoor closet is a good spot.  Braid will tolerate much more than the rest.

My dad stores his line in the refrigerator where he keeps his beer.

Hermetically sealed and stored at -273K.

No, the freezing point of water is -273.15K. Didn't you pay attention in Chemistry?

have to throw this in then chemistry whiz......

the freezing point of water is 0 Celsius or 32 fahrenheit...., or whatever scale you want to look at it.....

-273.15, is absolute zero..... which is completely different.

273 Kelvins = 0* C

0 K = absolute zero

-273 K = the point where all molecular movement ceases

your a little confused as well.....

the last number you stated ( doesnt exist), 0 K is absolute zero, there is no such thing as -273.15 K... the -273.15 is the translation to the Centigrade scale. So 0 K is theoretically the coldest that anything can be.

here....

Definition: Absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature, at which point the atoms of a substance transmit no thermal energy - they are completely at rest. It is 0 degrees on the Kelvin scale, which translates to -273.15 degrees Celsius (or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit).

The concept of an "absolute cold" was first presented by Robert Boyle in his 1665 New Experiments and Observations touching Cold. Various physicists explored this phenomenon, until Lord Kelvin derived his thermodynamic temperature scale, extrapolating backward to absolute zero based purely on the laws of thermodynamics.

Some substances, when cooled to near-absolute zero temperatures, reach a state of matter known as a superfluid, which exhibit strange properties.

id like to thank you all for viewing our August 2009 Science Fair thread.

join us next month when we look at the freezing point of the lube in your reels and see how it affects casting.

:D

sorry man ;D ;D ;D

just trying to clear up a few things for others :D

....nothin wrong with a little science though :D

i thought the whole thread was funny.

for my answer: i have a busted freezer in my basement that all my line goes in.
