PowerPro Maxcuatro With Spectra HT

Available in 50lb, 65lb, 80lb
and 100lb tests in Hi-Viz Yellow
or Green.
Increasingly, anglers are seeking specific fishing lines and other equipment to help ensure success in certain environments. The market for braided super-lines, like those made with Spectra fiber, continues to outpace the overall fishing-line market, growing 4 to 5 percent over the last five years compared to an overall market growth of 2 to 3 percent.

Avid and competitive anglers continue to trade up for braided lines with higher performance and value for use in both freshwater and saltwater environments.
Braided fishing lines made with Spectra HT offer anglers an additional competitive edge. Spectra HT is 25 percent stronger than equivalent-size competitive materials, enabling up to 30 percent thinner braided fishing lines so anglers can cast more easily, get more line onto their reel or use a lighter reel without sacrificing line strength or length. Fishing lines made with Spectra HT are also abrasion-resistant and less visible under water, so anglers can catch more fish. 

“With the introduction of Spectra HT, Honeywell has set a new standard for strength in braided super-line material,” said Mark Saholsky, global business manager for Honeywell’s Advanced Fibers and Composites business. “Made from the same material that stops bullets and protects police officers and military personnel, Spectra HT provides higher strength than competitive fibers, enabling fishing-line manufacturers to develop new, thinner fishing-line products that provide features anglers want – additional reel capacity, improved casting and lower underwater visibility.”

“Honeywell’s new Spectra HT technology allowed Shimano to develop an entirely new type of product,” said Konrad Krauland, division president of Innovative Textiles, Inc., a division of Shimano. “PowerPro Maxcuatro uses Spectra HT to enable a fishing line that is 25 percent thinner than our existing products with equivalent strength. Anglers can downsize their tackle and maximize their fishing performance with our thinnest, strongest line to date.”
