Real Magic Fishing Line Conditioner Distance Casting Review and Test

I test Real Magic Fishing LIne Conditioner to see if it adds distance to my cast using a spinning reel and PowerPro braided fishing line. I wanted to see if fishing line conditioner works beyond reducing memory by conditioning the fishing line. This is the first in a series to look for the best fishing line conditioner based on distance added to my cast.

It goes without saying that fishing is dangerous as a result of the fast water, slick rocks and other hazards that occur in random, unexpected places. You need to exercise caution, particularly in the spring when the water is high or during rapid changes in tide before you fish anywhere. You should always wear a life vest when fishing. Also, a wading staff will help you keep your balance as you walk on the shoreline or wade.

The bottom line is that you must make a judgment regarding acceptable behavior and risk and not rely on the opinions expressed here. The regulations governing legal access to fishing locations may change at any time, and it is your responsibility to understand the law. Nothing expressed should be construed as encouraging you to trespass on private property or violate a regulation.


Barney Ewing says:

Try it with mono and see if there’s a difference. Great video.

Corey C says:

Glad you posted this. Now I know not to purchase anything like that if the goal in mind is to increase casting distance.

Kori McFly says:

I have and love the kvd line spray. I haven’t measured casting distance, but I do know that it has decreased the amount and severity of my backlashes and birdsnest

Rob Fowler says:

Did you try it with a bait aster? I think that is what I see most people using it with.

Greg Jackson says:

Two questions: (1) Did the application of the line conditioner attract or repel the sand from the beach that the line was dragged through on the retrieve during the tests?, and (2) Is that a Carrot Stik rod you’re using in the tests?
