Line Diameters

5 posts in this topic

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.

Chris...

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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
