my faithful airflo clear intermediate finally split (after 5 years of hard use), so i turned to the line box and spooled up a monic clear intermediate that i had purchased. i bought it based on a review in fly rod and reel that said 'this line has virtually no line memory, so there are no tangles' which is important in the salt when throwing a lot of line. anyway, it turns out to be the exact opposite (big surprise)--the line has the worst memory of any line i've ever seen. i've soaked it in warm water, stretched it, but the coils just won't disappear. it would be great line on a weed wacker (which is where it might end up) but terrible for fishing.
