Threaded Mainlines Vs Bonded Mainlines

I'm interested in hearing some opinions regarding threaded mainlines.

I'll admit, I have rarely used a threaded mainline, when I have, it was usually someone else's line. I just haven't really felt the need. Whenever the situation dictates for redundancy I tend to just run two 1" lines through the bartacker making them a bonded mainline.

I understand, most people don't have the equipment to bond lines, but is it just that threading is available without equipment to anyone willing to spend a long tedius bit of work or is there some other advantage that I haven't seen yet. Threading is still a PITA, but at least I finally invested in something to do the job quickly so i can at least handle requests for them. Bonded on the other hand seems on the surface to have less limitations / downsides, but like I said, I don't spend time on threaded so I could be missing something.

I personally like bonded lines better since you don't have the whole strength / elasticity difference between the core and sheath line. That said, it seems there are still plenty of folks who use threaded lines so I'm looking to see the pros and cons from other people's perspective. Thoughts anyone? Is there something I'm missing?
