Spinning or baitcaster?
I have been dropping my spool of fresh VANISH into a bowl of hot water for 5-10 mins. before using it.. (after spooling, of course)
It really helps...

yah I broke off some pig eyes couple years ago icing the crack. 10 lb vanish leaders. Changed to Pline and had no more trouble. AlthoughI didn't hook into those pigs again-that really pissed me off.

I think Bernie uses 10 lb Vanish as leader material for some pretty big lakers and I dont remember him having issues ever...

That sucks slayer.... Ima try the pline seeing as though it isn't stupid expensive.

Spinning rod. Might try hot water. Well nm. Next place I'm going is supposed to have bigger fish. Not worth the risk

Mine was 6lb test.
