seems a tad dear for 150m

got a spool of ordinary PP in 30K BS---says on the spool its diameter is 0.36mm, which is remarkably the same as this new wonder stuff :laughs:

(I have measured the stuff I have and its bang on to what is claimed)

most 12lb mono is about 0.31mm

'tis a tad dear old chap, I agree.
It's 65lb BS by the way, so it is thinner.
I suppose you go for what you want really.

I have several different sorts of braid on my reels including Whiplash, after they been on a while I cant tell one from the other
When its new Whiplash certainly has better claimed BS and dia. and does seem tighter
the newest PP I put on 2 years back seems to have retained its colour much better than the older PP, and it hasn't gone "loose".

But this newer stuff Pred put the link up about dosnt seem any different from the spool I have, same dia and BS :shrug:

the link says its the same dia as 12lb line as well---0.36 is about 18lb in mono

why when they are not abrasive resistant would you use a fine dia.?
retired so time to smell the roses.
