The other day I went looking for a soft, low memory mono/fluoro. Basil at BHP Tackle recommended that I look at Soft Steel Ultra (a co-polymer), which I did, and ordered some. The line arrived, it is very soft and nicely stretchy (what I was looking for), its diameter is small for the strength. Here's what I measured for 80# Soft Steel Ultra: Specs: 80# Test 0.029" Diameter 50 Yards: $11.49 Measured: Actual Breaking Strength: 88 lbs. 4 Turn Uni Breaking Strength >73 lbs. (80% of Actual) Line Fit inside 60# Mono DaHo splicing Needle (and it looks/feels like 50# line) Ande 50# Premium Monofilament is specified to be 0.028" in diameter. So this line is only a little bigger than 50# Ande, similar to 60# Seaguar Premier, and has a knot strength that would suggest that it is a true 20%-over-rated 80# line. However, because the diameter is small like 50/60# line you give up some abrasion resistance. So my question is this, if it were you, would you think of it as a very strong 50/60# line (because of its thinness and abrasion resistance) or would you think of this as a true 80# line because of its actual knotted breaking strength?
