When wrestling to pull in big fish, anglers need to be able to rely on the strength of their line. Honeywell’s patented gel-spinning technology allows Spectra® to meet the strength requirements anglers need.
Spectra fiber is 50 percent smaller than fluorocarbon monofilaments of the same test weight. Additionally, Spectra lines are up to 5 times smaller than nylon monofilament lines of the same test weight.
Spectra fiber lasts twice as long in abrasion testing compared to other UHMWPE materials. Spectra lines offer less internal friction, enabling:
Spectra fiber is highly resistant to UV, fungal and chemical damage, making it the ideal super-line material.
With minimum stretch, Spectra is designed for maximum sensitivity, enhancing anglers’ detection of strikes and performance under stress. With up to 24% less stretch than nylon, Spectra offers anglers the edge they need to catch and keep their fish.
