Jerry Brown Industries provides outstanding Line One Spectra in spliceable, hollow and standard braid solid line in 24 different lb tests. Fishing line is their specialty.
Spectra: Only the best for Line One.
Spectra is patented and trade-marked. There are imitators which are similar but not equal. They usually have lower tensile strength and lower abrasion resistance; they can not be labeled Spectra. Spectra itself can be furnished in many different diameter fibers to suit the particular application. The smaller the fiber diameter, the stronger it is but the more costly it is. Finer diameter fibers also result in a much smoother hand-feel in the braided product.
Neither Spectra nor knock-offs can be dyed directly. Colored lines are fabricated from the natural white fibers by adding color to a coating. At Line One, we use a special thin polymer coating. Lower quality lines use a cheaper, thicker wax coating prone to flaking.
