How to choose a good fishing line

Fishing line can be said to be an indispensable important equipment for our fishing. A good fishing line can bring us a good fishing experience from all aspects. A good quality fishing line will first make us feel safe and reliable during the fishing process, and we are very confident. How to choose a good fishing line? How to distinguish the quality of the line? The aspects that people often care about about the quality of fishing line are: softness, tensile strength, water cut, abrasion resistance, curl resistance, ductility, etc. But apart from these, I think these points are also very important.

Is the surface of the fishing line uniform?

The surface of the fishing line we buy is very smooth, but some have uneven surface to the touch. There are three reasons for the uneven surface of the line and the uneven surface of the fishing line: first, the fish There is a problem with the processing equipment of the line production. The first process of the fishing line is to melt the raw materials through high temperature and then draw the wire. However, because the drawing equipment of some manufacturers is not in place, the drawing of the fishing line is bumpy. Second, even if the produced fishing line comes out smoothly, but after the later water treatment including the softening process, the surface of the fishing line will undergo physical changes and deformation, the tension will also be greatly affected, and the stability of the line will also be affected. It becomes very bad. Third, the workers in the fishing line workshop pulled too tightly during the process of repacking and winding, causing the fishing line to be squeezed and deformed by the lateral force for a long time. Normally, the newly produced fishing line will have a shrinkage rate of about 3% within 72 hours, so the line cannot be wound too tightly. Although this affects performance is small, it will affect the appearance and cutting speed.

How to find a cost-effective fishing line

In addition to the four major characteristics of the fishing line we often say, the first point left is whether the line surface of the fishing line is even as mentioned above. The wire drawing technology may cause the wire diameter to be different, which will affect the line tension. Of course, it may also be the squeezing force affected by acquired. The second point is the pull value we often say, but I have always emphasized that the pull value must not only look at the straight strong pull, but the nodular strength, because we will eventually need to tie big knots in the fishing process. Some poor fishing lines tend to increase the number more severely, so the straight strong pulling force is very strong, but the pulling force value will drop straight after the knot is tied. And a good fishing line is first of all not to increase the number, not to be false, and the nodule strength of the line will not decrease too much. So if the fishing line is good or not, try the knot pull of the fishing line. This is a reflection of the essential strength of the fishing line, and can most intuitively perceive the pulling performance of the fishing line. With the previous two points of testing, at least you will not be pitted because of the pulling force.

The last thing to say is that the softer the fishing line is, the better. Normally produced fishing line is harder and more brittle, but it has good toughness, strong tensile force, and stable tensile force. The softer lines are usually treated with a hose in the later stage, that is, the softening agent is added and soaked at high temperature, but the tensile value of such fishing line tends to be reduced, and the fishing line will increase in size if the soaking time is too long. The inner nylon molecules are changed and the gap becomes larger, which will become very unstable and tend to be tangent. But the advantage of such a fishing line is that it has a better feel and elasticity, and a better entrance.
