Like tippets there is a breaking strain on threads if you measure it, note these can be vastly increased depending on how they are used like tippets with a lighter rod to take the tension. However every material has a raw tensile strength at which is at risk of breaking.
· Danville Spiderweb as a 18/0 thread will break with 5oz.
· UNI Cord 12/0 GSP breaks with an approximate 39oz.
· Veevus 16/0 (thicker than our 18/0) is 15oz,
· WAPSI GSP 50 (12/0) is 37oz.
Coming in late June!
· Nano Silk in comparison is:
o 30D 18/0 is 40oz (1.14kg)
o 50D 12/0 is 67oz (1.9g)
After all of that,what it boils down to is, that this thread is ALMOST unbreakable!
Cascade will be offering both the 12/0 and 18/0 in a limited range of colors by late June and hopefully
more colors to come this fall. Meanwhile take another look at our site. www.cascadecrest.com
