The monofilament line (nylon) was invented during World War II, and throughout the years has evolved a lot and shows as a favourite of the vast majority of fishermen, by low cost, your options of diameter and resistance, and its various applications. However, emerged in the past decade a new option of fishing line, which is the line multifilament. This relatively new line is manufactured with very thin synthetic fibres (called Dyneema or Spectra), that are braided or “merged”, some of which receive surface treatment to reduce your harshness. Multifilament lines brought as the characteristics your huge resistance (at least two and a half times more resilient than Monofilament of same diameter), elasticity is your almost null (better sensitivity and immediate response in the home), the lack of virtual memory (are always free, with no effect of spring), and your durability, which is much larger in normal use. These “superlinhas” as they are also called, were developed initially for sea fishing, to great depths, where the movement of the fish on the other end can be felt easily and the strike takes effect immediately. Are great also for trolling, because they are much thinner offer less resistance to water, allowing the bait range and keep at desired depth. The multi are also effective on hard mouth fish fishing, as gold and dogs, where the strike has to be firmer. Multifilament lines happen to also have their snags, which should be evaluated by fishermen before they decide to adopt them. Let’s see:- price: multifilament lines are still very expensive compared with those of monofilament, say on average three times more expensive. -Multifilament lines have a tendency to “bury” in themselves to the spool, causing the famous wigs (this can be avoided if the line is wrapped carefully and tight, repeating this particular occasionally) – the use of the line multifilament different brake adjustment requires reel (or reel), using less braking, to compensate for the lack of elasticity and the prompt response that this line has on hooked. -Multifilament lines are usually rough in your area, and damaging for both the sticks which are not suitable to your use (Titanium coated dowels), being thinner, are dangerous and sharp if handled without protection, in case of close, etc. – multifilament lines are opaque and so visible in the water, and usually require a monofilament or fluorocarbon leader for additional concealment of bait. -Although the multifilament lines are very sturdy and durable in normal use are brittle when they come into friction with structures, such as corners. If the line “grate” on one of those corners, begin to break the microfilaments, until complete thread break. This is another reason to be used with a Fluorocarbon or monofilament leader. -We register though multifilament lines are more difficult in relation to us, is to tie up terminal equipment (hooks, lures, spinners and more on healthvv), how to splice two different lines, requiring special and most of us worked. The US have to be well made and tested, because these lines tend to “slip” when we are not appropriate. They are also difficult to cut, requiring scissors serrated or sharp knives. It was natural that manufacturers of monofilament lines to react to competition of new rows, releasing on the market new products, improving the quality and resistance of the lines, both breaking and abrasion. Were also improved the softness, resistance to us and the reduction of the “memory” of mono, with the emergence of lines called copolymers. These lines are basically a meat harder and resistant, coated with a resin that makes the softer line and low memory. It also emerged that lines were given a surface treatment with fluoride (“fluorine coated”), which also improved the friction of the line retainers and distance throwing. Monofilament or multifilament lines? The fisherman must choose what’s best for your fishing trip.
