Braided fishing line has become incredibly popular over recent years due to its strength to diameter, sensitivity, abrasion resistance, and its lack of memory which usually causes other lines to twist and can frustrate any angler. Although this super line has made its way to the top of every anglers list of preferred fishing lines, it can be quite pricey compared to other fishing line choices.
The average angler only casts 30 to 50 yards on a good cast, so most of the line spooled up never hits the water. I used to change out my whole spool of line once the last 30 to 50 yards of braid became frayed or looked to be overused. The frequency you fish will also dictate how often you may need a fresh spool of braided fishing line.
Some may think pulling off the remaining line and get down to the fresh line deeper in the spool would solve the problem, but then this reduces casting distance. To solve this issue, I always have a back-up fishing reel handy, which allows me to quickly transfer my line and get to a fresh full spool of line without throwing anything away or needing to buy new line.
