Ardent Line Butter Line Conditioner
Butter it up
This is my only experience with line conditioner. So I don't have anything to compare it to. However, the product did improve my cast distances by maybe 30%. And it seemed to keep the line slick and casting well the entire day.
The "con" side of using this product was it did seem like I was spraying Pam Cooking Oil on the spool. It was greasy and left a film on top of the water where the line hit the water, This may or may not have effected the fish's ability to see the line. It didn't seem to. But I have no way of knowing that.
My take is, the extra distance outweighed any negative things.
I will continue to use this product until the bottle is empty. Then try another product.

I went to Dick'slooking for the KVD Line conditioner. All they had in stock was the Line Butter. sprayed it on my line and it felt like I dipped my reel in oil. Butter is appropriate name. It feels like pure silicone oil. Do not recommend.
