Needless to say, that concerned me enough to know I won't be beta-testing that line until long-term reports come in from the field.
Plus, was it me or doesn't this line seem louder and splashier when stripping line in? It seems to leave quite the wake at the casting pond.
Anyone else notice the divots and the wake?
Has anyone else noticed the epoxy divots that Jackster reports? It would be good for all of us to know about this if it's real, since sales of Sharkskin have been strong for 3M; which means that there are a lot of us either using it now or getting ready to use it.
