Braided Fishing Line Vs. Monofilament Fishing Line (Stretch)

Comparing Braided Fishing Line To Monofilament Fishing Line (Stretch)

Braided fishing line has a lot less stretch than monofilament fishing line. This is because braided fishing line made with fibers braided together and monofilament fishing line is made up of plastic that is melted together.  





When There Is An Advantage To Having No Stretch

Braided fishing line has very little stretch and is not forgiving. This is good for situations where you need to YANK a fish out of structure or you want to feel the bite in really deep water. 

When Having Some Stretch is An Advantage

When you have a fish that has a really soft mouth sometimes you need to have a little bit of give and take. Monofilament can stretch up to 25% percent of the length of the line that is let out. 

Getting The Best Of Both Worlds

Using braided backing and a monofilament topshot is often the way to go so that you can get the best of both worlds and the best qualities of each. 

So Let's Get Into How Fishing Line Is Made

- Monofilament Fishing Line Bulk Spools

- Fluorocarbon Fishing Line Bulk Spools

Both monofilament fishing lines and fluorocarbon fishing lines are very similar in how they are made. While they are made out of different chemicals, they are manufactured in a similar process called extrusion. You've got this huge hopper with a lot of plastic pellets that gets melted down and stretched out like spaghetti.  You will get different qualities in the line, not just because of the chemicals, but also so that it can depend on how the line is stretched, heated, and cooled. 

Braided Fishing Line Bulk Spools

Like the name says, a braided fishing line is a "braid". The process to make this rope is to braid fibers together into one fishing line. Different types of fishing lines have different amounts of fibers that make up the rope.  Braids can come in a number of different braids. Braids can come as 4-carrier, 8 carrier, or 16 carrier braids.  Carriers talk about the number of parts of the machine that hold spools of fiber together to create the braid.  So a 4 carrier braid is made up of four strands. 

Bulk To Small Spool

Once the bulk spool of the fishing line is made, the next step of the process is started. This part of the process is the bulk spool being spooled down into a number of other small spools. This is so that an angler can buy a smaller spool of line if they are not up for investing in a bulk spool of line.
