Re: Tippet material longevity?
While it is true that nylon monofilament breaks down faster than fluorocarbon, faster is a relative term in this case. Nylon mono takes 500 - 600 years of full environmental exposure to break down so lets not toss mono because we believe it "breaks down". It is faster that only because fluorocarbon takes about 4000 years.
If Christ's apostles had fluorocarbon fishing nets, they would still be on the bottom of the Sea of Gallilee.
