The two spools that were sent to me as a replacement for the faulty ones were the 8lbG3 as shown above! I've not used it yet but after reading that I'm not taking any chances now and will bin it.

I'm still using 6.4lb Rio Powerflex and have caught more than a hundred overwintered powerful fish mostly over 4lb this year and not had a single breakage so will be sticking to that going forward.

I don't do competition fishing so not worried about losses, but I'd be really annoyed leaving a fish with a hook and trailing nylon in its mouth, something I pride myself in rarely doing.

I’m still using 3lb and 6lb of the new batch without issue, I’m getting through the spools too using up plenty.
The 3 nymphs on the Tay, and a recent session on Loch Damph saw me fishing a sinking line and lure in amongst Skerries on the 6, catching very decent trout that went haywire among said skerries and again had no issues.
I’m very confident in these spools, but now not so sure if I’ll buy more
🤔
