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.

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.

    • Kewaunnee 8/8-8/13 My dad and I fished out of Kewaunee for about 5 days and it was slow but steady for us. Ended up 12-16 with about a dozen shakers on top of that and a couple drive byes. We caught fish in 80-165 fow but fished as deep as 370 fow with only one drive by in 312 fow for the deep run. One one fish in a meat rig, one on a flasher fly, 3(+5 shakers) on clean spoons, 1 in a spoon with a dodger and 6(+7 shakers) on a spoon pro troll 8" spin ray. We added the spinner/spoon into the spread the last 2 1/2 days. Outside of the shakers the fish ran nice but no giants with the biggest just over 19 lbs. Sog was 2.2-2.8 mph. Surface temps ran 67-73 degrees. Fish were caught 40-70 feet down.

      Talking to a few other boats reports varied from 0-8 fish per trip and boats were scatteredall over the lake. Some big fish being caught and lost. Here's a few pics from our trip.
