Braided Fishing Line Test Results…


No matter what “Super-Braid” line you purchase, you’ll be using either Dyneema (made by DSM in the Netherlands) or Spectra (made by Honeywell in the United States), both high-modulus gel-spun polyethylene (GSP).

Both claim to be many (up to 15) times as strong as steel. GSP lines are used by bow hunters, mountain climbers, and even astronauts for space tethers. I’ve found no evidence that one type of GSP is significantly better.

Individual fibers must be initially braided to form larger lines; they then remain either in braided form or are thermally fused.

Most super lines are braided — they have the texture of a tiny braided rope.

Fused lines feel more uniform, like a strand of nylon. Which is better depends upon both preference and use. Fused GSP is stiffer and often favored for use on spinning reels, though it’s seldom available in strengths heavier than 30-pound-test.

So should one purchase the least expensive braid made then?

Berkeley Nanofil puts the other braids to shame, quiet and slick and super strong. Use the nanoknot when tying. $20 for 125 yards at Walmart. 10 pound test my favorite! Won’t wear your guides out like other braided line.

Is the Nano k ot like a polamar knot? I tried it once, had knot problems with it.

The nanoknot is just a double half hitch on the Polamar knot, wrap around twice rather than once. It prevents slippery lines like Nanofil from pulling through.
