This is truely a unique item that has it pluses and minuses. I have had trouble with the performance and durabilty of this item. I have found that it twist and tangles very easily, and doesn't cast well out of a spinning combo. Because of the twisting the line gains week points and snaps on hookset, or while fighting a larger fish. However, the "Sportsman's Edge" is the color. Red is the first color in the light spectrum that is filtered out under water, which make the line virtually invisible when it counts. I will not use this line on my spinning reels, but I do use it for leaders.
