Lol, if ya wanna use it for backing.

But I'm not. I would use it on my Abu's but it's just too thick. But for my chunking reels it's perfect. And there isn't anything stronger.

You can get some and use it for your bridge rig. Thank me later:howdy:

 

I used it.  its really thick.  I recall it being massively strong.   IMO if I were looking for really heavy braid for bridge work or, whatever someone uses heavy braid for, I'd opt for fireline original.   I jnow its not technically a braid, but its something to consider.

 

Little know fact*,  They used 30lb fireline as the suspension cables on the New Tappan Zee bridge.

This Gorilla braid is all I need. The olny time I would use Fireline is on a spinning reel, which I don't use very often. 

Thanks for share the little known fact about the TZB and the cabled Fireline. That stuff is strong too! Better than braid!:howdy:
