TUF-LINE offers an incredible strength and diameter advantage over monofilament lines. When choosing a TUF-LINE to replace a monofilament line, it’s usually best to choose a TUF-LINE with comparative diameter to the monofilament. This might mean replacing 12-pound monofilament with 50-pound TUF-LINE. The benefit to this approach is maintaining similar handling characteristics to what’s currently comfortable. Sure, that’s incredibly strong, and yes, your days of breaking off fish and lures may be over. The area where this is not the case is in applications like offshore fisheries, where you may use a comparative strength TUF-LINE to the monofilament you’ve previously used in order to gain substantial line capacity on your reel. Another area might be one in which TUF-LINEs diameter advantage is used to dramatically increase casting distance, as in bank or surf fishing.
