Spiderwire EZ Braid
An all-new, smooth handling, easy
casting super-braid available at an
affordable price. Made of high strength
Dyneema microfibers that are 3X
stronger than monofilament of the same
pound test.
Available in:
• Low-Vis Moss Green: popular for its
obscure appearance.
Spiderwire Stealth
This high-tech superline casts and
handles similarly to monofilament due
to its Teflon-pressure-treated micro
fibers, which keep it smooth and round
(to resist digging in on reel spools).
Stealth is what I use for most of my
Available in:
• Low-Vis Moss Green (popular for its
obscure appearance).
• NEW Low-Vis Spiderwire Stealth
Camo Braid (camo-colored super-line
that blends perfectly with underwater
• Hi-Vis Yellow (a line you can see and
not spook fish when combined with a
fluorocarbon leader).
Teflon is a registered trademark of E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company.
Spiderwire UltraCast
If you want the best, Spiderwire
UltraCast is it. I use this Spiderwire
when thin diameter and maximum
strength are especially critical to
success. High pick and carrier count
ensures roundness, while the UltraCast
patented cold-fusion processing
provides its silky-smooth finish (for long
casts) and body (to resist tip wrapping).
Available in:
• Translucent Invisi-Braid: visible crystal
above water, less visible below.
• Low-Vis Green: popular for its obscure
• Hi-Vis Yellow: a line you can see and
not spook fish when combined with a
fluorocarbon leader.
Spiderwire UltraCast 100%
Since they are less visible to the fish,
I combine the use of leader material
when using high-tech superlines. And
while monofilament works as leader
for much of my fishing, especially
for salmon, I recognize the value of
using invisible fluorocarbon as leader
material when fishing clear water.
I’ve found Spiderwire UltraCast 100%
Fluorocarbon to be really tough, thin
as compared to its strength, abrasion
resistant and super sensitive.

About High-Tech Fishing Lines
By Fishing Guide Eric Linde
While high-tech superlines are extremely popular
for big fish like salmon and sturgeon, their strength
and thin diameter make them desirable for fishing
applications ranging from trout to halibut.
Microfibers manufactured from Dyneena gelspun Polyethylene is what enables Spiderwire to
be stronger than other line types. For example,
6-pound test Spiderwire UltraCast is the same
diameter as 1-pound monofilament and will cast
40 to 50 percent further than mono of an equal
pound test. Due to Spiderwire high-tech superlines’
having almost zero stretch, they offer increased
sensitivity. In addition, Spiderwire floats better
than monofilament (great when float fishing for
steelhead or salmon) and is more tolerate of line
twist, which means it performs excellent when
used on a spinning reel.
Spiderwire is so advanced that using it can provide
both increased strength and thinness. For example,
where I once used 25-pound test monofilament
for salmon; I now employ 50 or 65-pound test
Spiderwire, which is over twice as strong and
half as thin as monofilament! For big fish like
steelhead, salmon, sturgeon and halibut; I always
choose similar to the above example. It’s different
when selecting light
tests for trout, bass
and walleye; where I
lean toward the side
of thinness – often
choosing the same
pound test as I would
High-tech superlines
engineered by
Spiderwire have evolved
since first introduced
to where all go through
additional processing
steps. This is done
to provide roundness
and body to the line
(to resists tip wrapping
and digging into the reel
spool); to provide color
(Hi-Vis, Low-Vis, Camo,
or Low-Vis translucent);
smoothness (for longer
casts); and to seal the line
(so it will shed water and
float higher).
Note, If you intend to
fill your reel completely
with Spiderwire keep in
mind that doing so will
require you to first tie and
then tape your line to the
reel arbor. Tapping is mandatory since not doing so
could result in all your line slipping on the reel spool.
When this first happened to me, I thought there was
something wrong with the drag on my reel. Electrical
tape is what I now use, but other heavy-duty tape works
too. Another option is to first fill your reel part way with
monofilament, splice your superline to it, and then top
your reel off with 150 yards of Spiderwire. What I often
do is fill my reels completely with Spiderwire and after
a season’s use I reverse it. Doing this allows me to get
two years worth of line for the price of one.
These are the lines I count on for my fishing and
guiding success. The next generation of superlines
is what Spiderwire is now offering - you’ve got to try
