Just for gits and shiggles I tried the method on a mono connection (based on reading JF's post). I am 100% flyfisher so I won't use this but the curiosity got the better of me...

It made me realize what a WASTE it is that the masses use a spool full of monofilament line!!!

Here is the current thinking... (conventional wisdom)...

Spool up a thousand yards of mono. Fish a while, it gets twisted. Dump it and spool it up again. Repeat.

We all know what mono does to the environment.

Why don't spin guys and conventional gear guys ALL use a system where just a length of mono is used in front of a more durable, lower stretch material that lasts several years instead of a couple of trips?

One has to wonder... JF, any thoughts on this?
