Throw the old line away.

Stripers have never seemed line shy, nor leader shy to me. The water you typically fish is less than clear anyway. I use green Big Game. Takes a beating and the fish don't seem to mind it's being green.

If you are not confident about the "restoration", tell Rick you have a reel you would like Paul to check out. He is the go to guy in the area, and will treat you right.

The clear is supposed to be the same as the green. I actually have 20# clear on a reel right now.

The Big Game will chafe, and peel, and get torn...before it breaks. I have landed fish and then seen the condition of my line and wondered how the heck it got the fish in, on many occasions. I do check my line frequently. But I also fish some hairy places. There are few things I would recommend by brand. This line is one of them.
