Tacklebox line test report

line test, nylon, mono, braided lines

Tacklebox UK just published their latest line test report. Should make for some interesting reading.


Snippet from Tacklebox.co.uk

Almost every line commonly used for carp fishing ...
has an under-rated breaking strain indicated on the spool or box. With a good knot, most lines will always break at a higher strain.

With no international guidelines for indicating breaking strain or diameter, manufacturers under-rate lines to different degrees. A line labelled 12lb by one company may consistently break around 20lb; a line labelled 12lb by a different company may regularly break at just 14lb.

To give a better idea of the specifications of lines we sell, we have tested breaking strains and diameters ourselves.
