PLATYPUS LOW STRETCH LINE 3KG X 500M STEEL BLUE
Platypus Lo-Stretch™ is a monofilament that has such low stretch it thinks it's a braid. |
Some stretch is good, braid has almost no stretch which makes the line incredibly sensitive, but can result in pulled hooks and lost fish. Platypus Lo-Stretch™ gives you the best of both worlds - enough stretch to allow a slight shock absorbing quality with minimum stretch for maximum sensitivity.
All braided lines have worse knot strength than monofilament, and knots for braids typically require more turns and wraps than regular knots. Good knots tied with Platypus Lo-Stretch™ give 100% knot strength, excellent knots tied in braid give 85% knot strength.
Platypus Lo-Stretch™ is more cost effective than Braid, roughly one third the price of Braid.
