Fishing lines, characteristics and types. The nuances of choosing a fishing line
Fishing line is the main link to the fishing fishing. Before you select should examine its specifications and properties, despite its simplicity, the results may differ. You must pay attention to the parameters such as tensile strength, diameter, stretch, memory and color.
Strength is a main indicator, which pay attention when choosing. The strength and diameter of the line are closely linked with each other. The higher the diameter, the higher the strength specified by the manufacturer.
The line diameter is measured in millimeters, with precision to hundredths. More attention should be paid to the calibration, this parameter tells about the uniformity of diameter throughout its length. It is important to avoid defects in the structure, they can lead to discontinuities even in the weakest loads.
The elongation of the line is its ability to grow under load. Extensibility is an ambiguous indicator, as it carries with it advantages and disadvantages. Due to the high depreciation when you stretch, you will be able to extract a large trophy on a relatively thin diameter of the line. But at the same time, stretch the fishing line in excessive wear, frequent breaks, and reduced strength.
The memory of a scaffold or permanent deformation, called the inability of the scaffold to return to its original state. A good memory is a bad indicator, as the line tends to form, which it gave. In order to preserve the original condition of the line is necessary to dry and store the line in favourable conditions.
The color of the line. When choosing a fishing line, fishermen usually prefer transparent. This quality has flurocarbon, but as mentioned above he has a very small breaking load. Most common fluorescent, red, green, brown, yellow and black fishing line. Fluorescent fishing line accumulates light during the day and clearly visible on the surface and in the water column at night. The red line is the most popular in carpfishing. The line of green and brown color scheme usually pick up the color of the pond, they will be invisible in ponds with vegetation and peat bottom. Yellow fishing line suitable for catching on the sandy bottom and muddy waters. Black fishing line becomes invisible in the dark waters, on the color well to carp.
There are three types of fishing line: monofilament, flourocarbon, braided. All fishing line is used frequently, but each of them fulfils certain conditions.
Monofilnaya wood. This is one of the most popular, due to its reasonable price and wide range of measures. Fishing line has high strength and elasticity and rigidity. The disadvantages of such a scaffold can be attributed to the strong stretching properties that reduce the sensitivity of the tackle.
Flurocarbon line. Due to its transparency it is used to make leashes and feeder snap-ins. It can not withstand a strong load, easy to deform, remembers the tension and has a high cost.
Braided fishing line. This scaffold or “cord” consists of a different number of intertwined fibers. Braided fishing line has a small amount of stretching, has high sensitivity and durability. It can withstand a load of two times more than a monoscaffold identical diameter. The disadvantages of such a scaffold include: the frequency of formation of nodes, it is easy to see in water, low abrasion and high cost.
