Platypus have identified that braided line delivers greater sensitivity, due to the low-stretch fibres, but has poor shock absorption that can result in pulled hooks and lost fish. Monofilament, on the other hand, can absorb shocks due to the stretch, but has the disadvantage of slack line reducing the sensitivity.
Platypus have created the perfect compromise between braid and typical monofilament lines, so you get the best of both worlds! Their new low-stretch formula will make sure the line stays taut from your bait or lure right up to your rod tip. However, they have left just enough stretch in the line to be able to absorb shocks created by an aggressive strike from a fish, or when a fish splashes around the surface next to the boat.
Platypus Lo Stretch Mono Line comes in a variety of breaking strengths and spool sizes, so head into your local BCF store to check them out.
