Platinum Braid uses a Silicon impregnated coating to enhance the smooth construction of the line. The smoother feel equates to quieter casting through the guides and longer more accurate casts. The coating reduces wind knots and increases abrasion resistance and knot strength. Their experience with braiding (which dates back to the beginnings in 1898) has allowed them to build a braid with a smooth feel without compromising tensile or knot strength.
Platypus only use 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE gelspun fibres in Platinum Braid. With everything you expect from a quality braid; high strength, small diameter and near zero elongation but without the expensive price tag!
Made right here in Australia by family owned and operated Platypus lines, they have made Platinum Braid for the fisho that needs an all round Braid at a price that won’t break the bank.
Platypus Platinum Braid combines affordability and reliability.
The beneifts of Platinum Braid are:
Precise Strength - Computer monitored braiding achieves an smooth weave of 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE gelspun fibres, stronger than steel.
Silicon Coating - Super slick silicon coating for quieter, longer and more accurate casts.
Ultimate Sensitivity - 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE fibres with engineered with near zero stretch creates sensitivity that monofilament can't match.
