I use a lot of mono and yes, it can become thick and hard to get out of the bottle - yes, yes, it's true. I doesn't matter how I store it or put a pin in the top, the mono inside thickens.

I'm a person who likes to test and experiment to see why things happen. What I learned is that even though the bottle is closed tightly, the mono will begin to slowly thicken and become clogged in the top once I open the bottle. Mu back-up bottles are several months old and when I open one they haven't thickened.

Pushing a pen into the wee hole doesn't really fix the problem. I found this to happen with the original bottle and when I transferred the mono to a fine tip applicator.

My fix...I add a few drops to the mono to thin it out. I only add a few drops at a time so I don't make the mono too thin. When I add the water I don't have any more problems.
