Depends on the poly. This poly IS uv resistant.
Been using this as dock
lines this season. No sign of failure so far.
At $44 for 100 feet at a local farm store, I can afford to replace it every season if need be.
Farmers are tight with money
. Same stuff at a marina would bring a higher sale price
. Also available in nylon for twice the money
. Will switch to that if I notice problems.
