Braided lines are woven lines which consist of individual carriers, called strands. The Tournament Series 16 Strand PE Braid by NTEC is made out of 16 strands of ultra-volume UHMWPE (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) and has significant advantages compared to fishing lines available in the market today:
· Material: the Tournament Series 16 strand PE Braid lines are made with ultra-volume UHMWPE material from Japan. This material has been developed by packing more fibers in each strand using Japanese technology. As a result, a very small diameter strand can handle higher impact/shocks with non-existent deformation.
· 16 Strand Braid System: made with a tighter weave of ultra-volume UHMWPE fiber, the 16 strand braid line is rounder, smoother and structurally superior to competing 12, 9, 8 and 4 strand systems. The ultra-strong braided line enhances pitching and flipping, jigging, casting, trolling and big game fishing.
· Round Cross Section: The 16 strand braid system has a better round cross section than 12, 9, 8 or 4 strand braids. The near perfect round cross section of the 16 strand braid line makes it super sleek, smoother and reduces friction. Reduced friction helps to cast farther, the line passes through the guides quietly and results in quieter reeling.
· Zero Memory, Near Zero Stretch: made from high strength material, the line has near zero stretch, no line twist and zero memory characteristics which dramatically increase sensitivity.
· Extreme abrasion resistance and anti-bite: complex tight weave of the 16 strand braiding system provides extreme abrasion and anti-bite resistance. The 16 strand braid system reduces the chance of erosion dramatically and is superior to 12, 9, 8, or 4 braid systems for fishing in either high vegetation or rocky terrains.
· Titanium Dyed Line: special titanium dying technique prevents damage from UV and brittleness during extreme cold temperatures.
The Tournament Series 16 Strand PE Braid by NTEC is the highest evolution of fishing lines in the market today. Made with Japanese ultra-volume UHMWPE material and ingenious round cross section braiding system, The Tournament Series 16 Strand PE Braid is the next generation of fishing lines you have been waiting for!
