Cortland Master Braid - Blue

Cortland Master Braid is the most consistently performing super braid, ideal for a wide variety of freshwater and saltwater applications. Implementing Cortland’s Opti-ConTM Technology, gel-spun fibers are woven into a tighter and stronger braid that stacks better on the reel.

Master Braid is treated with FiberTech® protection that bonds to the individual gel-spun fibers, which adds body and improves handling of the line. This super braid excels at strike detection, instantaneous hooksets and longer casts. With exceptional strength and low stretch, Master Braid doesn’t require a break-in period and maintains its body and handling cast after cast for an extended life. ColorLast provides long-lasting color that does not bleed.

Masterbraid for Lake Ontario Smallmouth Bass

If you're not casting your swimbaits or marabou hair jigs with 5 or 8 lb Masterbraid, then you're missing out. In these gin clear waters, you'll generate twice as many bites if you get each cast well away from the boat. Masterbraid allows you to do that & it delivers rock solid hooksets at distance.

Master Braid

I used Cortland braided products including the Master Braid when I was chartering and will continue to until I can no longer fish. I can not even tell you how many people I have converted from other brands after seeing how my gear performed with it. It will always be the only line on my equipment.
