I was impressed, they seemed super strong, same diameter but seemingly stronger then my naish lines that a lot of brands use and i've always thought were good.
And much better then the lines north and core etc use... Anyone know the specs on the RRD lines?
whilst not wanting to state the obvious, seemed strong and seemingly stronger are not any form of practical or scientific test, just as name dropping a few manufacturers names and hinting at others and stating they are sub-standard.
Have used many flavours of line, a few have broken, but generally from abrasion from launch/obstacle incidents, checking lines each time is a good habit.
Tightly woven lines have less give and will break under there stated load in shock stress,
loosely woven lines will stretch and creep causing poor flying characteristics.
Have broken Qpower lines as well as others and since SS upped there front lines to 800lb have had no more issues with line breaks, and like the way it behaves, don't have much experience with others other than Naish, which is also good quality.
My feeling is that if the load is that great, I want it to break before it breaks you, and many breaks are operator induced
