Gliss - 24 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 love this line! It is without doubt THE thinnest line I’ve ever used. It’s also slick as snot which lets you cast it long distances. Different lines have different uses. This line is not to be used in the nasty stuff. For that I use a 4 strand braid like Daiwa J braid. It does have a tendency to fray if you do. Under normal finesse fishing conditions is where this line shines. It’s also not a line you can tie on and not re-tie for a whole season. I trim back a few feet after each outing just like I do with mono or fluoro. I don’t have any problems with it breaking and this has been my main line on my spinning reels for the past two seasons. As long as you buy it with these expectations you won’t be disappointed. If you expect it to perform like Power Pro 4 strand, you’ll be disappointed. It’s not that kind of line.
If all your looking to do is win a casting contest, look no farther this stuff casts a mile. Don’t plan on being able to land any fish or tieing on your favorite lure though terrible durability! Tried it in 18lb and 24lb both with the same outcome.
Smoothness and cast ability is a 5.... but durability and strength.... DEFINITELY A 1 and I wish I could go lower... I’ve lost 3 lures on it and possibly my PB on it... ?
