I just took apart all my rods and reels, cleaning everything and stripped all the mono off. I have four reels with Power Pro (dead sticking, 65lb/50lb), for the surf. I have used these reels all season, and caught a lot of fish. On two of the reels, the braids color has fadded (Moss Green,50lb), is this an indication the line must be changed or just normal ware. First season using braided line. On the other two reels the color is fine, 65lb. I believe I used the discolored line more.
