Platypus Platinum™ is the result of many years of research and development.

Platypus Platinum™ gives you a line that has the advantages of low diameter with the value for money that only local manufacturers can provide.

Through years of consultation with Australian anglers, Platypus has created a thin diameter monofilament without compromising qualities like abrasion resistance or knot strength. 

Thinner diameter means decreased friction on the line so that your lure can work deeper and is more responsive due to the low-elongation (stretch) properties of the monofilament. 

Reduced diameter means more line on your spool allowing you more line (and time) to fight those bruisers from the deep.

Advantages of Platypus Platinum 

Platinum™ is thinner than most monofilaments
