Fishing monofilament line is by far and away from the most popular type of fishing line across the species. With a plethora of benefits, monofilament line is low in cost, translucent and easy to dye to you chosen waters. Monofilament fishing line is stretchy adding length and flexibility to your line, absorbing those aggressive lunges. The ESP Syncro XT line is exceptionally stretchy! Monofilament line also has a large diameter to strength ratio, so if you’re looking for a super strong line for battling huge fish then this isn’t the choice for you.
Fluorocarbon offers a near-invisible line choice for ultimate stealth angling. Fluorocarbon has the same refractive index as water, so it bends light like a liquid. This means that it vanishes in the water, making it practically undetectable and it is the preferred choice for anglers fishing in clear waters or angles targeting easily spooked fish. The Gardner fishing line offers improved knot strength and fast sinking thanks to fluorocarbon being significantly denser than monofilament line.
Composed of multiple fibres which have been moulded and welded together, braided line is the only line type that does not rely on a single fibre or strand of material. The multi-fibrous construction of braid ensures that this line can offer incredible strength with a small diameter. This is excellent when you’re targeting larger or harder fighting fish, as you can keep a small (near invisible) line whilst enjoying maximum break strain strength. The Fox Exocet Braid Line is great for marking or spodding for those specimens as it measures a breaking strain of 20lbs, but we do sell braided lines with 30lbs to 50lbs plus. It is also a dense line type, so it sinks quickly through the water column – making it an excellent choice for the angler fishing with bottom baits such as barbel anglers.
