Berkley IronSilk

Berkley IronSilk

Pure Fishing recently introduced its newest rendition of Berkley IronSilk monofilament for Midwest finesse anglers and others to wield in waterways that are infested with zebra mussels or other snag-infested elements that wreak havoc on lines and leaders.

According to the folks at Berkley, it is 33 percent more abrasion resistant than lines of comparable diameters. It is protected with a reinforced polymer matrix, which enhances the molecular strength of the nylon. Berkley compares the reinforced polymer matrix to the construction industry's use of steel rebar to reinforce concrete structures. Berkley says this technological breakthrough that reinforces the nylon molecules makes IronSilk 200 to 300 percent more abrasion resistant than similar types of abrasion-resistant lines. It is the first fishing line to be manufactured with this state-of-the-art process.

The reinforced polymer matrix also enhances knot strengths. Because it possesses a low co-efficiency of friction, IronSilk moves through rod guides from 10 to 25 percent faster than other lines, and this heightens casting distance and accuracy. On top of that it is exceptionally limp and possesses an ultra-low-memory quotient, which can help anglers execute alluring presentations to their quarries.

What's more, it is 40 percent more ultraviolet resistant than IronSilk's first renditions.

It is available in an opaque-green hue and seven sizes: six-, eight-, 10-, 12-, 14-, 17-, and 20-pound-test.

The suggested retail price for a 300-yard spool is $9.95.
