WFT Gliss Transparent Fishing Line Supersmooth Monotex
Japanese raw materials combine with German precision in the revolutionary new GLISS KG fishing line—an almost mono-braid hybrid, for want of a better description—that is being described by anglers around the world as, “the best casting distance line I’ve ever used.” GLISS KG line from German tackle company WFT has the slickness of mono, thinner diameters and better strength than braid, plus better casting performance than both. You might never fish with traditional braid or mono again. GLISS KG is a third-generation line that, like top quality braids, is made from 100 percent Japanese PE fibres. However, where GLISS KG differs is that it is not braided, it is instead extruded into an almost perfectly round shape and uses different material treatments and coating processes developed to combine the best traits of mono and braid into one ultra-performance line that, among other attributes, will certainly improve your casting distance. The slick and smooth outer coating of GLISS KG resembles monofilament and because the PE fibres are compressed much more during GLISS KG production than in braid manufacturing, it achieves a thinner line with a much higher breaking strain at the same denier rating. GLISS KG also retains its round shape during a fish fight or retrieval much better than braid, which flattens considerably as braid passes through your top guide, which in turn affects your next cast. It is interesting to note that each GLISS KG diameter line is designed specifically for that line class, rather than just adding more fibres, as is the case with braid. The GLISS KG coating designs are also specific to each line class, making a total of five different processes used to create each line. This computer-optimised production process ensures that you can rely on the accuracy of the technical specifications, which is important for lines of small diameter. For example, you can trust that every spool of the 4kg GLISS KG line has a diameter of precisely 0.10mm. GLISS KG has less stretch—at around 2 percent—than any braided PE line, yet it retains the braid-like flexibility with no memory, has extremely low diameter-to-line-class ratios and provides excellent sensitivity. Other GLISS KG attributes include a very high dimensional stability and low water absorption, so it will pack neatly onto your spool, producing a perfect winding contour after each cast. This combines with the smooth coating, line flexibility and thin diameter to deliver performance-enhanced casting distance—which actually improves even further when wet. Other advantages include exceptional UV resistance, extreme tensile strength, impressive abrasion resistance and a highly colourfast finish. Like with braid, it is advised you use good knots, and then simply enjoy casting further and catching more fish with WFT’s GLISS KG line.
