Super Braid™

Since the release of Super Braid, Platypus has had requests from anglers around the country asking for a slightly stiffer and coloured braid. In response Platypus has recently released Dark Green and Bright Yellow coloured Super Braid

Platypus Super Braid is braided using 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE, for the low stretch, ultra-thin diameter you have come to expect from the new wave of braids.

It has some amazing charactistics including the astonishing facts that - for its diameter - it is ten times stronger than steel, it will not deteriorate in sunlight, it will not absorb water and lastly, it has no line memory! Excellent for lure casting, trolling, fly reel backing or bottom fishing. 

Unlike thermo fused and fusion lines, Super Braid does not suffer from fluffing after the fused coating begins to wear. The effect of the fluffing is as the line is retrieved it creates a much larger wake as the fluff pushes through the water. When anglers need every advantage they can get, Platypus Super Braid delivers! 

Super Braid has enough body to cast exceptionally far while being limp enough to ensure excellent handling and useability. It provides a remarkable "feel" and situation awareness when lure fishing. Flow-on advantages include crisper lure actions, deeper running depths, and positive hook setting.

  • Crisper Lure action
  • Not weakened by sunlight
  • Runs lures deeper

  • Phenomenal sensitivity from near zero stretch
