Why Use Monofilament?
With so many options on the market, choosing the best fishing line can seem a bit overwhelming. But it is actually a simple matter of finding a line with performance characteristics that fit your style of fishing.
What Is Mono?
As its name implies, monofilament fishing line—or “mono” for short—is a single strand of material, as opposed to multi-filament lines, which are strung from multiple strands that are fused, braided or bundled together.
Monofilament can be extruded from different materials, but nylon is by far the most common and popular medium. Often, different varieties of nylon are blended together to produce varying degrees of stretch, strength, abrasion resistance and other important attributes.
