Revolutionary Platypus Lo-Stretch, now available in Fluoro Orange.

The innovative and highly-successful Platypus Lo-Stretch range has been expanded with the addition of a new, ultra-high-visibility Fluoro Orange and larger 1200m bulk spools.

Platypus Lo-Stretch monofilament has such low stretch that it thinks it’s a braid. The advantage of braid is the incredible sensitivity you get from near zero stretch; Platypus Lo-Stretch has the lowest stretch possible from a monofilament. It achieves this by capitalising on new raw material blends and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes.

Much has been written about the advantages of braid; and most of it is true, but we often forget that monofilament has its place in fishing as well. Some stretch is good, but braid has almost no stretch which makes the line incredibly sensitive and can result in pulled hooks and lost fish. Platypus Lo-Stretch, gives you the best of both worlds: enough stretch to allow a slight shock-absorbing quality with minimum stretch for maximum sensitivity.

Platypus Lo-Stretch is roughly one third the price of braid. It is available in IGFA rated 3-24 kg in 300m, 500m and 1200m in your choice of pink, blue or high-visibility orange.
