Original Spiderwire

When Spiderwire first appeared on the scene I purchased a 1500 yard spool of 50 lb. test. I used it for everything including surf casting. I know there have been many improvements over the years with micro fiber braided line, but I never kept up on it because I had gone back to mono full time.

Given the fact that I have so much of this stuff left, I want to know if it is worth using, or should I just switch to Power Pro or Fireline? What was it about the original spiderwire that caused them to go away from it? I never had problems with it, I just switched because mono was just so much easier to fish with (knots, breakoffs etc.) Does anyone have any good things to say about the original spiderwire?

Thanks in advance.

It cut through the guides. Whether it was due to the Kevlar material, or more likely it picked up grit and "hacksawed" through the guides - it would cut through them.

Do't know if this was the reason why they stopped making it, but I'm sure it was a major contributor.
