New Fishing Line to Replace Braid???

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

Good day all,

 

Any one else heard about some new fishing line called "Gliss" to replace braid that is suppose to have characteristics of both mono and braid...and is supposedly to be thinner?

AFAIK it's not released yet so nobody has had a chance to try it. Sounds good but who knows. There is a thread on it.

From Angling International:


 



A new line so thin and strong that it could replace braid is about to be launched into the market.



The company behind the development is World Fishing Tackle (***), which has been working on the secret project for two and a half years.



The line, called Gliss, is made from extruded hmpe fibres and according to ***’s Managing Director, Christian Dibisch, combines the qualities of both a monofilament and a braid.



“Gliss looks like a mono, but has huge advantages, including almost zero stretch. Other lines have at least three times more stretch,” Dibisch told Angling International. “It also has extremely low diameter-to-breaking strength ratios. At 0.010 diameter, it has 4kg strength.



“These exceptional properties give it multiple applications. The low stretch means it is incredibly sensitive and you always know what is happening under the water.”



The potential for Gliss is further boosted by the fact that it can be produced far more quickly and cheaply than braid. Dibisch estimated that it takes around 100 hours to produce 1,000 metres of braid, depending on the type. But he can manufacture the same length of Gliss in a matter of minutes.



“Production is so fast that I am sure it will replace braid in certain fields of fishing,” said Dibisch. “It is ideal for any application where low stretch is an advantage, such as lure fishing and long range fishing. Light lures can be controlled more sensitively than ever before.



“What we have introduced is actually a third generation product,” added Dibisch. “The first and second generations were developed during the testing phase as we worked to make the line as good as possible.”

Have to wonder if this new line is limp with no memory like braid. If it is not then it will not perform even close to braid as far as casting goes.

This makes me wonder how they will market this...cheaper to make than braid...someway somehow, this company has to make some $$$...hmm...I am curious about this new line and would like to test it out...I just hope that the price is right.
