After overhearing three guys express their total displeasure with Big Game (BG) line (while spooling on their spinning reels), I decided to write this review based on my own personal experience. Their primary complaints related to BG having ‘terrible’ memory and one of them even said that he’d loss many nice fish due to BG breakage. First, I have always used the correct BG line pound test rating for the fishing conditions at hand. I’ve used various BG lines exclusively for both salt and fresh water for many, many years and I am totally convinced that it is certainly one of the most economically-minded, best performing monofilament lines on the market today. BG truly shines when compared to some of the more exotic saltwater-specific monofilaments on the market. Next, I’ve never experienced a single problem with BG—no premature breakage, no memory problems, no nothing--it simply works. The line is extremely tough and reliable (when used correctly). Finally, I’m a decent person and always try to share information with other people who love the sport of fishing as I do. So, to the guys mentioned in the opening of this review: 1) Do not make claims that products are inferior or no good without first learning about the sport and the equipment used, 2) Never attempt to spool light duty reels with 20-25 pound test line, and 3), If the fish you are pursuing breaks 20 pound test BG, I say leave them alone. They will never be caught on a rod and reel.
