This Innovative Fishing Line Could Replace Braid for Good

A European tackle company says they’ve developed a hybrid fishing line that will replace most braids on the market.

World Fishing Tackle (WFT) developed the mono-braid hyrbid, named Gliss, in secret for more than two years, according to Angling International.

The company says Gliss, which is made from “extruded hmpe fiber”, is stronger, thinner and easier to produce than most braids.

“Gliss looks like a mono, but has huge advantages, including almost zero stretch. Other lines have at least three times more stretch,” said WFT’s Managing Director, Christian Dibisch told Angling International. “It also has extremely low diameter-to-breaking strength ratios. At 0.010 diameter, it has 4kg strength.”

Gliss is a highly sensitive fishing line that could be used for multiple applications, such as lure fishing and long range fishing.

Dibisch said the line takes less time and less money to produce than braid, and believes it could potentially replace braid that’s already on the market. He said 1,000 meters of regular braid takes 100 hours to produce, whereas the same length of Gliss can be made in minutes.

There’s no word yet on how much Gliss will cost, but we’ll keep you updated when we find out more details.
