Hello!

I never heard about this.

What i know for float fishing is that you can put a special grease on the line to let it float on the surface what makes the floatfishing easier.

Just try it!

What can be a problem is that the oil maybe destroys the line after some time?

cheers and tight lines!

Would not recommend that, oil can react with Mono, weakening the line.

@bobby - if oil reacts with mono, then it would be disaster..

Hi all,

I don't know whether it will help in improving the casting distance or not. But it will preseve the mono for long time. Because it act like a Shield to prevent the plasticizer to evoprate when you are not using for long time.

@jbasamie - "preserve the mono" , now this is contradictory.. i got a feeling that applying oil weakens the mono. anyways while i was going through the Pioneer tackle website i saw a product which can be sprayed to the spool to improve casting.

Hi Guys, I would recommend you oil your reels and not your mono :lol: As far as I know oils, sunlight and exposure to the elements are bad news for mono. It would make sense to change line at the end of every season if not earlier to avoid line failure.
Mono's relatively cheap and an investment in a bulk spool stored safely is a great idea.
