Been using the hydro sink in 22lb since last year after I originally started this thread. Pretty impressed with it. Sinks ok, but slowly. It does fade a bit from dark green to a mid green but still looks good. Haven't fished much in the last year but landed a 90+lb UK cat from snaggy gravel pit no probs. Did get cut off on another big cat but to be fair the cat took me right round a point swim next to me rod st full compression and line was grating against trees for about 30 minutes. Doubt main line would have coped tbh. It's good stuff I've since spooled up my other reels with it.

I have Gardner Hydro sink 22 on a set of spools. Seems thick but not overly. Casts very well, never had a wind knot. Sinks well, lovely and dark (although it will likely lighten with age) and of course, stupidly sensitive bit indication.

I currently use Korda subbraid- whatís the Gardner hydro sink like in comparison- is it thicker/thinner, lighten in colour over time?

Don't soak it, wind it on dry.

And Iíll probably get mixed answers here- do you guys then add a flouro leader or fish straight through to lead core? Cheers

Sorry to drag up an old thread. Any advice on spoiling up with the hydro-sink? Soak or not?

The AVID braid is excellent - i have used alot of the others over the years but this is far the best

I havenít found 1 fault since using it, as long as the braid is slightly under filled on the spool.
