    So I know it’s been discussed before but I was wondering what happened to the site. There was a lot of useful information on his site. Any insight would be appreciated. Gary

    I read on another site his health took a turn for the worse so he started working on that and has let the site slide-apparently he's feeling better now but cyber concerns don't interest him much-living does.

    Old braid data is like yesterday’s Chinese food. No knock on Paulus, but just look at the variations within his results for the same line with different production dates. The engineers at several braiding companies that I have spoken with will tell you that a variation of +/- 10% is within acceptable results. Fiber changes, I don’t care what anyone tells you, if you work with line every day you know. Quoting old data is just that.

    But, Basil he was the go to guy for a lot of fisherman. I’ve found his numbers out of date years ago.
    Then again, I buy 60 pound test, it means 60 pound test, not 80 pound test.

    Yes he was the go-to guy. Way back then. But over time, braiding production techniques change as well as raw fiber manufacturing sources. Braiding companies change their sources, so a belief that the line you bought from source A 10 years ago is the exact same line as you purchase today is false. I know Mr. Paulus would agree as I have spoken with him about this. His constant testing exposed these variations, just read his charts.

    Basil, is TufLine Guides Choice still Spectra by Honeywell? I bought a remenint spool of Guides Choice that did not have the Spectra logo. Also the blue line had 130# MEGA on the spool. Could not get info from TufLine about what does MEGA mean...
