Braid Diameters


Recommended Posts

I don't think one exists. Remember many of the braided lines are not exactly round eg Fireline (some are like a ribbon eg Climax) so diameters stated on the container may be different to those you measure. As for breaking strain, in a steady pull braid usually breaks way above figures stated on the packet. The knots you tie will determine the actual braid strength. See thread below for links to actual tests.

Thanks for the reply Jeff

If members could copy and paste the below with the answers to make up a reference table that would be great.

Id like to know the diameters of each weight line in a particular brand eg. Fireline as it is stated on the packaging


6lb = ? diameter

8lb = ? diameter

10lb = ? diameter

12lb = ? diameter

14lb = .23mm

and so on, that way i and others can use this for reference to purchase spools of line to suit specific reels that i have and know how much i can spin on without the need to go to the store and look at it.

Cheers :beersmile:
