    Where can I find out what diameter PE-4,PE-6 and PE-8 is? I know that the diameter of all PE rated lines should be the same,however there breaking strength might differ.

    the diamater can vary due to several factors. with the different number of weaves 4,8,16 and such the diameter can change. also adding a coating such as powerpro does changes the diameter.....

    I thought the whole reason the japanese lines was rated in PE was because the diameters were the same.

    Power pro and those made in the US are rated in breaking strength. There diameters can be different with the same breaking strength. This would depend on the number of weaves and coatings.

    Maybe I should ask it differently. The OTI dept finder 60lb line is .36mm What PE would that be?
