Yes, the braided fishing line definitely has memory. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you’re trying to achieve with your fishing line. If you’re looking for a line that will give you more sensitivity and help you feel the fish biting, then memory can be a good thing.

However, if you’re trying to cast your line really far, memory can be a bit of a nuisance since it will cause the line to coil up after being cast. Ultimately, it’s up to the fisherman to decide whether memory is a good or bad thing in their particular situation.

Yes, the braided fishing line does have memory. However, the amount of memory will vary depending on the make and model of the line. Some lines are designed to have less memory, while others may have more. If you are concerned about line memory, you can always check with the manufacturer to see how much memory your particular line has.

Yes, the braided fishing line does have memory. Memory is the term used to describe the ability of a material to return to its original shape after being bent, stretched, or otherwise deformed.

A braided fishing line is made from strands of nylon or other synthetic material that are tightly woven together. This construction gives it incredible strength and sensitivity but also makes it prone to retaining its shape even after being put under stress. That’s why you’ll often see anglers using stretching and coiling techniques to help manage their line and reduce memory.

There is some debate on this issue, but most experts agree that braided fishing line does have memory. This means that if the line is bent or curved in a particular way, it will tend to stay in that shape even after the bending force is removed.

This characteristic can be both good and bad. On the one hand, it can help you cast your line more accurately because the line will “remember” its original shape. On the other hand, it can also make it more difficult to untangle the line after a catch.

There’s some confusion over what is meant by “memory” in this context. Some people seem to think that it means the line will always return to its original shape, but that’s not actually what the term means scientifically.

Memory in materials science refers to the ability of a material to deform and then return to its original shape after the force is removed. So, in answer to your question, yes, the braided fishing line has memory because it will deform (curve) and then return to its original shape after the force (the weight of the fish) is removed.

A braided fishing line can have memory, but it depends on the material used in the braid. Some materials (like spectra) are less likely to retain memory than others.

However, even if a braided line has some memory, it will usually still stretch quite a bit when wet, which can help to minimize the effects of any memory that may exist.
