One of the reasons I use flouro, is its better abrasion resistance and knot strength - the tests I saw were comparing flouro to the popular mono "Berkley Trilene XL", which I was using at the time.

The XL mono absorbs alot of water and looses half its strength after 10 mins underwater - but the article states the XL is a low quality mono - and it isnt a true indication of what "coated", higher quality mono's, can do

I'd like to see if soaking the spools for 30 mins, would make a difference to the test.

As its the water absorption that is supposed to weaken the mono line.

But those results give real cause for concern for the "Flouro Is Tougher camp".

There are so many lies in the fishing game thats its hard to tell whats real - even stated diameters and breaking strains are often wildly different from what it says on the spool.
