The line you put on any reel is what connects you to the fish. Shouldn’t it be the best?
It’s always amazing to me that someone who buys a higher end reel will then opt for the most inexpensive line they can find.
Let’s explore this further….
All fishing line is not created equally. Most is mass produced in any number of countries by manufacturers who make lots of other stuff. Line is most likely just one of many, many products a company sells. So it may or may not be a priority. There will be variances in the “mix” (the powders, resins, etc.) that are blended together to make the raw material, the extrusion, and ultimately the finished product.
Monofilament line will vary in outside diameter as it is manufactured, so when the line is given a lb. test rating it will be based on the smallest diameter the line has. Otherwise the lb. test would be under-rated and it would break at less than its rating. Ditto for fluorocarbon lines.
This means that you’re most likely fishing with line that is thicker, heavier, and less flexible than it should / could be. Unless you’re fishing with Sunline Monofilament or Fluorocarbon lines. Sunline is the Only All-Fishing-Line manufacturer in the world. They don’t make plastic baits, lures, nets, reels, rods, knives, etc. They just make fishing line.
Their monofilament and fluorocarbon lines hold incredibly tight tolerances on outside diameter. They mix their raw materials (sampled continuously for quality control) in what’s best described as a “clean room” using state-of-the-art technology. End result: You get the smallest diameter, strongest, most flexible and reliable line available today. All for about $3.00 – Three Dollars! more than lesser lines.
This same attention to detail and quality holds true to Sunline’s braided lines. More flexible, more reliable, smaller, more abrasion resistant at a price that’s just slightly more than the most popular braided brand.
So, you DO have a choice. And hey, we understand if you line that $49.95 fishing combo with the lowest priced line. We really do. BUT, if you have better reels and are serious about fishing, how can you not be using Sunline? For a limited time, get 25% OFF Select Sunline Products!
