Line Diameters

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the line diameter of the Cortland master braid in the 80# or 100#? I am deciding whether to get the masterbraid or tufline xp but I think i want something with a larger diameter...

Thanks,

Ryan

Tufline XP is made by Western Filament... Cortland is made by Cortland Lines...

as for the info...

heres what I could find

Tufline XP 80 = .018" 100 = .019"

You could send emails to the companies asking for info... I dont think Cortland makes 100# for their Masterbraids yet... just 80# and 130#

Hey Reb,

Thorne does have the Masterbraid in the 80 and 100lb. I don't know the exact specs, but I really can't tell a difference between it and other 80lb braids. I do think it packs the spool better than any other braid, so I would not be concerned about it's diameter and the potential plus/neg to performance.

I did look at Cortland HSOforum... and dont see 100# anywhere... but guess that HSOforum needs to be updated... Thanks for rectifying the info...

Most of the Super Braids have roughly the same diameter. XP and Masterbraid in 80# are both 18# mono equivalent.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
