Spooled up a buncha reels with Ironsilk before I went down to Tennessee a few weeks back. My first impression was pretty much on par with things I had read...however, I did notice that it likes to peel off your reel quickly, and if you put too much on, your in for an ugly rats nest. Too much meaning don't fill the spool completely! I found that filling the spool maybe 3/4 full was the ticket. The stuff casts a mile, and is nice and strong/abrasion resistant with low stretch. The memory properties are iffy, not quite as low memory as Berkley claims. All in all, I give this stuff an 8/10. Worth trying!
