When ours came out Harken tried a single core line. It was tough on the hands and rather greasy. One call to Harken and a newer better line was on the way, free of charge.

Harken is sweet stuff but very pricy. We use mostly Garhauer and but do have a bunch of Harken too. We have never had a single issue with any piece of Garhauer gear. Customer service is no where near as good as Harken but it is hard to beat the best....
