The Armorall debate has been going on for quite a while. From Simon Gawesworth. Yes it says Rio Products, but pvc is pvc.
How best to treat Rio Lines? What do you personally use (silicone spray? Armorall?)
"Never, ever use Armorall on a PVC fly line. It breaks down the bond and results in very poor durability. The line will dry out and harden with constant use of Armorall. We recommend a mild soapy water with a flannel to clean the line, then if you want to re-lubricate it, apply a 100% silicone, though very lightly. All PVC fly lines use silicone as a lubricant, so it is best to use the base ingredient to prolong the line's life."
