Problems with Gamma Purple Copoly

Recommended Posts

Anyone have line breakage issues while casting with this line? I spooled up on three rods(two curados, one citica) with it this spring and really havent had any issues other than snapping lines while casting .5 ounce or bigger lures. Its pretty consistant too. I need to re-tie every 80 or so casts or it goes flying 400 yards! I am only using 10lb test but dont ever remember snapping any lines while casting with 8lb trilene XL.

I can't say I have ever thrown that heavy of a lure on the 8lb. Gamma I use, but I have never broken it during a cast. And, I can honestly tell you I have never broken off a fish on it.

Any chance you have a rough spot on a rod guide or on your reel somewhere? Seems unlikely being that it is happening on 3 different rods. Is the line all from the same spool? Maybe the stuff is a bad one. I have nothing but positive comments about that line.

Thats the reason I came on here. I really just wanted to understand if anyone else was seeing the same issue before I go and buy another spool. Two different spools between the three rods but breakage is happening only on two (i dont throw large lures with the citica). The 10lb is what is breaking on the gamma, I was just comparing it to the 8lb trilene that I used to use with no issues.

All I use is gamma, and I have never had that problem. Like ray said, check your rod guides. Or had you backlashed with it and it had a weak spot?

Although small, I have had a couple of backlashes. The breaks are definitely clean thats for sure. Im confident there arent any issues with the line guides unless the gamma cut a groove. I will check and re-spool.

take a q-tip to all your guides and if it pulls a little cotton off of the q then you have found your problem. Fished a tourney a couple weaks ago witha guy use 10lb braid and he snapped 3 good fish off and swore they weren't teeth. Changed rods and no snappage, Went home and what do you know his tip top was sharp as a razor. good luck hope you find the source to the confidence rattler.

My only problem was that a Hulk of a line jumped out at me when I open the box.

LOL's j/k

But I had a big gob of line in the middle...couldn't figure out why there was ding in casting until I pinched the line to the source. One big snot. I don't know how I missed that when I spooled it on.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
