bapmthe1 It's happened to all of us. I have a method thats strangee but works well.
I just take a very thin piece of heat shrink tubing slide it over the cut shink it then coat it with clear finger nail polish/enamel so it becomes slick it works great for me.

What BigDave said...

Worked for me...
While at a remote fishing camp only a float plane from the nearest mini-mart...'managed to encounter a prop...
After roughing up the suspect cut with some sand paper, I slid on some 30# braided mono (running line) and worked in a thin coat of AquaSeal...
...after an a few hours, a second coat to make it more slick and pretty.
In the morning it was a done deal and lasted out the week with no worries and ALOT of fish. ('still going strong)

But your local shop would be more than happy to sell you a new one!

braided mono?

I've seen it done with braided mono. Do a google on line repair and this method should pop up...

line tear repair?

I managed to put a small tear into my brand new SA Mastery IV sink line at about the 60 ft mark. Anyone know how or whether to repair this?
Many thanks!
