Platinum Plus Braid™

After two years feedback and continuous research, Platypus has remastered their popular Platinum Braid, to produce a stronger thinner Braid whilst still retaining the softness of the original best-selling line.

By employing a unique braiding process we are able to pack the PE fibres closer together decreasing diameter and enhancing the strength by up to 25%. When consulting with anglers one of the most important properties is softness, this increases handleability of the braid enabling smoother, more trouble-free casts. Made right here in Australia by family owned and operated Platypus lines, we have made Platinum Plus Braid for the fisho that needs a Braid at a price that won’t break the bank. Everything that made Platinum Braid the unique AFTA award winner, just stronger and thinner!

Platypus is now using the well known Australian made logo to increase consumer awareness of our Australian heritage. Still manufactured in Brisbane and family owned, we have over 110 years of line making experience to keep us at the forefront of line technology.

Precise Strength - Computer monitored braiding achieves an smooth weave of 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE gelspun fibres, stronger than steel.

Silicon Coating - Super slick silicon coating for quieter, longer and more accurate casts.

Ultimate Sensitivity - 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE fibres with engineered with near zero stretch creates sensitivity that monofilament can't match.
