Dont know if anybody uses it but Stroff braid (I am told) is the most accurate braid where breaking strain is concerned & it always breaks very close to the rating. I havent tried it yet but they do a whole range of colours (matey at the local tackle shop says they apply to some compliance code of tolerances or sommat & they have only recently started stating diameters as rating braid diameters is all a bit of a grey area as I understand it)

Their page http://www.stroft.biz/index_en.html

Here are their faqs on their lines (in English) http://www.stroft.de/faq_en.html

If you look at the test results here (done by an independant agency) http://www.stroft.biz/index_en.html theres a load more info

cheers

Thanks for posting that Tom :clap:

I have never tried their braid, but they have always made some of the best mono lines money can buy

Funny you should say that I just bought Mike a spool of their mono today to test (if you want to try the braid and do a non biased post on it I would be happy to send you some)

Never heard of that one either, I'll check it out.

I would imagine though that, like monofilaments, many braids are made by very few companies.

Only just recently, I ordered 2 spools Stroft GTP from Waku GmbH (grey colour, 100 mtrs) for seatroutfishing (type 3) and bassfishing (type 4); so haven't used it very much yet, but my first impressions are very well indeed: quite honest in diameters, breaking strenght, quite smooth and round, and also the colours don't fade quickly.

They have their own webshop (they also ship abroad at quite decent costs), just have a look around:

http://www.aspo-gmbh.de/

This spring they will introduce another braid, the GTP S, from which they already claim will feel linke monofiloment (the 'old' GTP wil be renamed GTP R by then)... sounds very good, but this one will be very expensive!

I'll try the 'old' GTP more extensively next season... otherwise I would go for the YGK G-Soul WX8 (12 lbs and 16 lbs).

Regards.
