It is so slick it is hard to hold on to the line enough to make a haul!
I tried some spray-on silicone for a quick fix and it resulted in the same thing, Jackster. I also noted that it becomes very sticky after it semi-dries out and mixes with salt water, and makes the line worse than without it.
I just use glide now. Nothing I've tried works very long in salt water, but buffed out glide works for a while. I use Ivory hand soap too, because it rinses completely off easier than anything else and is conveniently located in my bathrooms.
I also paste wax my rod whenever I can find it, remember to do it, and get the chance. Getting old ain't for whimps.
