Platypus Lo Stretch Fishing Line (300 metre spool)
Do you want some of the qualities and performance of braid yet prefer to fish with mono? There is a great solution for you from Australian owned and operated Platypus line, it’s called Lo-Stretch. And Platypus are telling us that it is so low stretch, it’s actually monofilament that thinks it’s a braid.
Lure anglers love braid simply because of the near zero stretch. The argument is; the low stretch imparts a better action on your lure and is far more sensitive; that is, you get far better feedback through line to hand. While this is true, with absolutely no give, braid is responsible for plenty of lost fish somewhat due to pulled hooks, Braid knots are inherently weaker, approximately 85% of line strength and knots are more difficult to tie with braid.
Platypus Lo-Stretch gives you the best of both worlds and, importantly, at a price as much as 1 third cheaper than some braid. You also get 100% knot strength and some level of stretch provides the angler with very useful shock resistance, which can be very useful for applications such as trolling. Platypus Lo Stretch is available in a great range of breaking strains, is affordable, and for sale now.
