Here in Oz we have a monofilament line, manufactured by Platypus, who were the first braiders of GsP in Oz, like Bionic Braid etc, that is 9% stretch, has great, normal mono knot strength and comes in 15kg, and 50 kg to make up a pure mono SWF system, It's great for beach fly fishing because it's impervious to sand grit ingestion and works very well when fitted with mono shooting heads.
It has no problems with being put on reels, does not need to be loaded at high pressure, glued to arbors, or even cross hatched. Just good old monofilament stuff, that matches GsP
for stretch but beats it to death for all of the other nasties. It is a bit thicker than GsP. But its here, and it works really well. I have a DH beach outfit that's fitted
with a complete mono system.
This isn't an "add" for Lo Stretch but a note that its here and works.
Very modern mob us Aussies.
