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.

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.

Berkeley vanish

Is trash.

Most of the people I know that have used it, hate it. I've never used it, but know too many good fishermen that won't touch it anymore. So many other options out there. P-Line, Berkley 100% and Sunline are all good lines.

I'd be willing to bet he uses 100%, like you do. It's amazing to me that the same company can make such different fluorocarbon lines....what the hell?

Never used Vanish...but reading between the lines, drdoom had rats nest issues on a spinning reel. Casting? Over filled spool? May wanna clarify. Line twist can be an issue on spinning gear. Usually get my spinning reels spooled where I'm buying line nowadays.Seems to help with line twist and saves me a few bucks most times since I'm paying for what I need, not for leftover line that I have an obscene amount of.

I have been using p-line on lots of different reels/applications for a few years now with no problems after the recommendation of Mrwiggles and DID. Much appreciated. If it matters, I'm mostly fishing it on casting gear.Spinning gear is various braid. That being said, lots of failures/blame can be traced to operator error.

yeah im casting on it. stopped spooling 1/8 of an inch away from the edge of the spool. the operator error thing is a fact jack.... lol. before the vanish, i had seaguar on it that i also spooled on myself. casted more times and never had one nest. i imagine that eliminates most possibility for operator error.

Spinning reels don't really like Fluoro. Try using Nanofil or Some sort of braid, with a Fluoro leader. Might not have as many issues.

Edit: Vanish still sucks
