Does all Florocarbon line do this?

Recommended Posts

I got a filler spool of Seaguar Red Label and filled a reel with it to try.  A fine talc like powder came off it while I held the line taught between my fingers.  I wonder if the spool was really old and on the shelf for a long time.   It seems limp on the reel.

i think it is caused by old line . i got some Seaguar Carbon Pro that was marked down and when i spooled it on a reel i ran it thru my fingers and got that chalky residue you are talking about , i am positive it had sat on the shelf for a long time . anyhow , maybe Seaguar floruocarbon does that when it gets old  :-/

I remember a spool of mono did that to me, but that was back in the 80's  :)

I had the same problem a while back and contacted Seaguar about it. It is a treatment that is on the line to keep it from sticking and drying out. They advised that it washes off the first time it gets wet and does not have any affect on the line.

It's just a silicon coating. It's no big deal. It keeps the line from sticking and fraying while going through the machines at the factory.

Be careful with that red label it can be a handful/ Personally I love InvX, but I plan to try Carbon Pro and some others.
