Kevin VanDam's Line and Lure® Conditioner
So Far So Good!
I use Stren Original in 8 to 12 pound test and I have never used any line conditioner before. I recently decided to try Stren Magnathin in 8 pound test and use the KVD Line Conditioner while adding it onto two of my Shimano Syncopate Spinning reels. I have been able to cast very far with the Shimano reels even with the heavier test line so I was curious to see with the smaller diameter line and conditioner how it would go. I used a synthetic cloth as directed and ran my line with tension through the cloth while spooling. Then after spooling I sprayed each spool with a generous soaking coating and let it dry overnight. I did take this time to wipe the bail arm and line catch with the wet cloth and to wipe all the guides on the rod. I let everything dry overnight. I didn't spray any additional conditioner on the spools the next morning, I just went out and started fishing. I was able to cast my normal buzzbaits, spinners, hard lures and Texas rigs further than before. As I said, not sure if the conditioner made the total difference or if it was due to the line diameter being smaller than I normally use. Even though I do spool new line the proper way I occasionally get some funky line twist and looping on line whether it's brand new or a few months old. I did notice that the line behaved much better and I had no issues with it jumping off the reel or twisting weird. Could that be the conditioner, who knows. Proof will be told when I use the conditioner on some of my Original Stren in 10 or 12 pound test. We'll see if the performance is improved and I'll add that review then.

This is the best line spray I have ever used. When putting new line on spray the line has it is going, also spray it on your line the night before and in the mourning before you start fishing it will increase your casting distance. Great product thanks Bass Pro.

Initially a Gift - Good Stuff
I was given a bottle of KVD conditioner as a birthday present from a fishing buddy. Had never used line/lure conditioner of any kind in the past but I took it to Canada last year and used it. All I can say is "WOW"........really good stuff. To make a bait caster smoother and longer casting with many less birds nest (and easier to pick out when you do get them), just spray some of this stuff on the reel spool and line and on the rod eyelets....you will notice an immediate difference. By the end of our trip, the bottle was gone because I couldn't get the other 2 guys in the boat to not use it. Have ordered 2 more bottles for the upcoming Canada trip in August. Good stuff!
