Will that do any damage to the line, or can I just rinse it off well after each practice session? Or should I buy a cheaper line just for that kind of practice?

Thanks in advance.

If you use good line I wonder if treating it with line cleaner conditioner befoe and after might be a good idea? If you are just talking dust I would think that sufficient. Most gyms are cleaned with a dust mop. I bet the custodian would let you make a pass with his mop. I have the same concern as I'm going to use a howitzer repair garage bay, but I run manufactures seconds lines so I afford to take the risk in the name of winter practice.
