I have a reel of Ande 15 lb pink that I've had for about 10 years I use it primarily for leaders, as I fish braid, it was 2500 yards. Still have about 500 yards left judging by the spool. Put some on a 13 Origin the other day when we had a major backlash and had to cut off the braid. Fresh and soft and tough as always. If it stays in a drawer I'd think practically forever. The mono left in the sun goes bad in a year or so.

I had massive spool of 10lb Stren from the 80’s. It looked good but I did not want to use it in case it was brittle. I ended up throwing it out as I don’t want to lose a trophy fish because of a decision to use old fishing line.

New mono, on a large diameter spool, is a different story. UV light and heat are the issues to avoid. A boxed spool kept in an air conditioned home will last a long, long time. I've used 10 to 15 year old mono, that was stored that way, and it preformed very well.
This.....Bill Munroe at Ande Line in Miami said they store their line in an air conditioned warehouse that is kept cooler than the average home. I want to say about 50 deg. F. but this conversation took place over 30 years ago, so I don't remember exactly. At any rate, I used to store my 2 and 4 lb. line in the refrigerator. I know it was in there over 1 year before I caught world records on both 2 and 4 lb. classes, so it obviously held up.

I keep a 3000 yards spool of trilene XL in the fridge and I’ve never had any problems with it. Been doing it for years.

sheepy2 My 2 Cents

On a reel and used some and stored in a garage/un-air conditioned area it varies. If it gets brittle and chalky it is done. The best I've ever used is Ande. I spooled a reel with it on or before 2006 and it still performs fine. I use the reel once a year and store it inside the house. It is 40 pound test and I've caught fish to nearly 20 pounds with it last year. I do plan to replace it soon, maybe next year! Ande is by far the best all around line IMHO but it's not the cheapest!
