Platypus Fishing Lines - Platinum Braid

When Platypus developed Platinum Braid, the idea was simple - produce a smooth and strong braid of exceptional quality at an affordable price.

Platinum Braid uses a silicon-impregnated coating to enhance the smooth construction of the line.  The smoother feel leads to quieter casting through your rod guides and longer, more accurate casts.

The coating reduces wind knots, increases abrasion resistance, and increases knot strength.  Our 118 years of experience with making braided fishing line has allowed us to build a braid with a smooth feel without compromising tensile or knot strength.

We only use 100% ultra-high molecular weight PE gel spun fibers in Platinum Braid.  This braid is everything you expect from a quality braid - exceptional strength, small diameter and near zero stretch.

Precise Strength - Computer monitored braiding achieves a smooth weave of 100% ultra-high molecular weight PE gel spun fibers that are stronger than steel.

Silicon Coating - Super slick silicon coating provides for quieter, longer and more accurate casts.

Ultimate Sensitivity - 100% ultra-high molecular weight PE fibers engineered with near zero stretch create phenomenal sensitivity and an improved hook up rate that monofilament is unable to match.
