Yes, the braid fishing line can deteriorate if it’s not properly taken care of. The main thing that causes braid to break down is exposure to UV light, so make sure to store your line in a dark place when you’re not using it. You can also coat your line with a waterproof sealant like clear nail polish to help protect it from the sun.

Another thing that can cause the braid to break down is salt water. If you’re fishing in salt water, make sure to rinse your line with fresh water after you’re done fishing and before you put it away. And finally, avoid stretching your line too much – this can also lead to deterioration.

There is some deterioration that can happen with braided fishing lines, but it usually isn’t severe. The main thing to be aware of is that sunlight and UV rays can cause the line to break down over time, so it’s important to store it in a cool, dark place when you’re not using it. If you take good care of your braided fishing line, it should last for several seasons.

Yes, it does. A braided fishing line is made up of several fibers braided together. Over time, the individual fibers will start to break down, which will cause the line to weaken and eventually break.

To prolong the life of your braided fishing line, make sure to rinse it off with fresh water after each use and store it in a dry place. You can also treat the line with a UV protectant to help shield it from the sun’s harmful rays.

Yes, the braided fishing line does deteriorate. The individual strands within the braid can become frayed and the line itself will eventually break.

This happens more quickly if the line is exposed to UV light or if it’s stored in a hot, humid environment. Braided fishing line should be replaced regularly (every few weeks or months, depending on how often it’s used) in order to ensure safe and effective use.

It can, over time, if it’s not stored properly. Moisture and heat are the two biggest culprits when it comes to line degradation. Always keep your line in a cool, dry place – like a tackle box or fishing bag – to help maximize its lifespan.

There is no definitive answer to this question since the braided fishing lines can deteriorate for a variety of reasons. However, in general, braided fishing line is known to be more durable and abrasion-resistant than monofilament fishing line, so it typically lasts longer.

That said, the individual strands in braided fishing lines can become frayed over time if not properly cared for, which can lead to reduced strength and decreased performance.
