Feels Like Mono, Performs Like Braid

More and more anglers are making the switch from monofilament to braided line. The strength-to-diameter ratio of braid coupled with its lack of stretch makes it a better choice in almost every application. But braided line can be unforgiving and may not seem very user friendly to those used to fishing with mono.

TUF-Line, however, is bridging the gap between the performance of braid and the ease-of-use that mono offers.

TUF-Line recently released a new product called SuperCast which does away with some of the drawbacks of braided line. TUF-Line encapsulates the fibers of the SuperCast braided line in a coating that keeps the braided fishing lineline lubricated and helps it maintain a round shape. The coating process adds additional body to the otherwise very flexible line that the company claims will outperform conventional braided lines. Simply put, SuperCast makes fishing with braid a whole lot easier.

Handling more like a monofilament than braid, SuperCast casts farther than both mono and regular braid, avoids wind knots and it’s round shape keeps it from digging into itself on the spool when you’re fighting a big fish. Most importantly, it won’t wear a groove into your thumb when guiding the line back onto the reel.

This smoothness also translates into less friction as it goes through the guides and makes for a quieter fishing line. Another advantage of the coating is that it gives the line more abrasion resistance and prevents it from breaking down and losing its rigidity from prolonged use.

Like all TUF-Line products, SuperCast is proudly made in the USA and available in a variety of sizes from 6- to 30-pound test in both green and hi-vis yellow. Whether you’ve been thinking about making the switch from mono to braided line or you’re having trouble getting used to fishing with braid, try SuperCast as it will make the transition a whole lot easier.

Designed for both fresh and saltwater use, SuperCast is available in 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, and 30 pound tests in 100, 125, 300 and 2,500 yard lengths in both green and hi-vis yellow. For more info, visit www.tuf-line.com.
