Hey Tackle, how old was that report?
The testing was published in the september/october 2001 issue. I went to the site and it's back up but they didn't include any of the charts and graphs from the original article. They were more than half of the article. They pretty much took everything into consideration including:
line name that appears on the box
cross-x area (in square inches)
wet braking strength
mean cycles to break
cost per 100 yards
The charts and graphs are nice to look at so you can see where your line falls in each category and you can pick your line accordingly. They also tested #8 line, search: "tough guys" on the same site. Once again, no charts and graphs. Old test but probably still somewhat relevant.
