This super braid excels at strike detection, instantaneous hooksets and longer casts.

80lb Master Braid line
Great line, I have tried many brands and Cortland is the best when it comes to braid. Does not bleed or fray like other brands. Holds up to the abuse of heavy musky lures.
Deep freeze muskies!
Being an avid cold water fisherman and guide. I tried Cortland Braid last winter for musky fishing. My experience with the 80lb braid in are temps below 30 degrees. The line out performs several brands I’ve previously used. The line carries less water. Which is reducing freezing up my reels at the line guides and the line don’t swell when it freezes during transit from water surface to the reel. I’ve experienced less reel failures and longer periods between thawing my reels with a buddy heater ! This keeps my clients in the game longer!
I have used several leading brands over the last 25 years and Master Braid is the BEST of the bunch. The past 10 years I use it exclusively for musky and smaller species . Great for casting, no wind knots, doesn't fray, repels water, very strong & dependable line.
Super smooth and very easy to cast. I will recommend it to all my fishing buddies.
