Gliss - 12 pound test
Gliss is a new 4th form of fishing line that is produced by a breakthrough extrusion process of high modulus polyethylene fibers. Gliss has qualities of both monofilament and braid. Gliss has zero stretch and the lowest diameter to breaking strength of any line. .010 diameter Gliss equals 4kg/8lb strength.
PRO ANGLER TESTING & COMMENTS: After a very successful intro by WFT in Europe, Gliss has been extensively tested in North America. Testing has been performed by bass elite and FLW tour anglers in addition to saltwater and freshwater professional guides.
“I caught fish with Gliss that I could not have caught with other line due to its incredible sensitivity.
Softness of Gliss produces superior castiblity resulting in increased distance I don’t get with braid
Gliss is the easiest line I’ve ever fished because it has zero line twist
When dropshotting, I can get down faster due to it’s small diameter and cuts right through the water.
Gliss is much thinner than typical braid which allows leaders to be tied with out hanging up in the micro guides of bass rods.
I’ve been a pro for 20 years and haven’t purchased 1 spool of line but I will buy Gliss and compete with it. “
I recently bought a spool of this 12 lb gliss and spooled it on my Ardent Arrow... and oooooh man! I absolutely killed them!! I fell in love. No issues!
Once I used Gliss, I removed all braid lines from my Spinning reels respooled them with Gliss. Better Castibility, smoother,
I am extremely impressed with Gliss! have been using the 12 lb translucent color on saltwater flats. The thin diameter allows me to cast so much farther than braid, that I can reach new spots and cast to fish without spooking them. I am catching more fish than ever. I wholeheartedly give the line 5 stars! I just wish the lower strengths and the translucent color were offered in larger spools than 150 yards.
I've reviewed everything on this site I have bought to honesty and I will do the same here. I bought 2 spools of 12 lb gliss, and had issues with the line snapping above the knot when tied to 10 lb fluoro. The line also is so thin and slick that knots do not hold well and the fluoro will slide out when pressure is applied. I thought this was possibly a bad batch of line, or just an issue with 12 lb, so I bought 2 spools of 18 lb gliss and had the same issue: the line would snap above the knot. When tied to 10 lb fluoro. Im no mathematician, but 18 lbs is supposed to be stronger than 10, yet the gliss keeps breaking. Clearly these lines cannot live up to their advertised strength while being so much thinner than other braids I've used. I love ardent products, as i have 2 apex elites, an ardent bolt, an ardent finesse, and 2 ardent arrow spinning reels, but i will never buy gliss again, and hopefully someone from the company can fix this product because as of now I'm not going to risk losing fish on line that continuously snaps.
