I’ve been using Optima 12# test since started fishing Erie and following OGF in 2009. Have 8 trolling LC reels spooled with it. Some is 10 years old! Never any issue with break offs on in line boards, divers, or bottom bouncers. These rods stay in the boat stored in large bank barn when not on the lake fishing. They are not exposed to high temperatures or sunlight unless in use. I have found very weak and easy to break line on other reels I’ve spooled with various other popular brands of mono and fluorocarbon. I now look at date stamp on spools purchased at stores. I have thrown away a lot of “new” spools I purchased and did not use for years, even if sired in closed cupboard in the house.
