    Being dark green can you tell me if this line is hard to see in all types of water, i.e. clear/murky..and most lake beds i.e. gravel/silt. Many thanks,
    Dave

      Hi Dave,

      The deep green colour of GT80+ means that it is a particularly good line in terms of general camouflage; especially when it is allowed to settle down on (or close) to the lake bed.

      This camouflage works well as its sinking properties have been enhanced to make this aspect of the lines performance as good as possible. Overall, it’s a very good camouflage colour for most venues, whether they are clear and weedy, or slightly muddy and murky.

      As anglers ourselves, we understand that some particular colours of line suit some different venues better than others – and this is in essence why we offer a range of colours across our main line range. However, experience of selling this colour line (Original GT80 in dark green before) has shown time and time again that the deep tone excels on some waters – and is simply ‘good’ on others.

      Hope that this helps,

      Kind regards,
      Gardner Tackle

    Dear team,
    any preffered way how to spool this on our reels? I understand to drop it into a water and let it go? Doesn`t matter how it faces the reel, which way etc.? I just want to avoid as many line twists as possible.
    Thank you

    • :

      We have found that the most consistent way of spooling up the newer lines (GT80+, Pro and HydroTuff) is to allow the spool to ‘do its own thing’ in a bucket of luke warm water, reeling in through a damp cloth to maintain a consistent (gentle) tension. The luke warm water slightly softens and lubricates the line.

      However, we urge customers to use their common sense, and occasionally stop reeling and drop the tension between the tip ring and the spool/bucket to see if the line is twisting up (in which case turning the spool 180 degrees normally helps alleviate the twist.

      With original GT80 and GR60 weighing the spool down (label up) is still the recommended method – but again its always worth periodically checking the build up of line twist, as described above, just to make sure the line is going on nicely.

      Hope this Helps,
      Team GT

    Hi,

    When loading GT80+ onto a spool do you recommend that it is soaked in water first or is it ok to load dry? If so does it need to be warm water and for how long should it be soaked?

    Thanks for any help

      Hi Ross

      We always try to load copolymer lines on wet – and though some people think it’s best to soak the line for a long time beforehand we’re not convinced it makes a big difference.
      Just put the spool in some luke warm water for 10 minutes and your ready to go.

      Hope this helps
      Team Gardner
