Cortland C16 Super Braid - White

Cortland’s C16 Super Braid is the most advanced gel-spun fiber, hollow core casting and trolling line available for saltwater fishing today. Braided in our Cortland, New York, manufacturing facility from 16 gel-spun fibers, C16 line features a tight, round weave and uniform pick count (wraps per inch) for an exceptionally smooth surface that packs tightly on the spool with no flattening or digging in. Its fine diameter minimizes line drag when trolling or fighting fish, and the 16 carrier construction results in incredible resistance to nicks and abrasions during protracted fights with big fish.

The C16 line delivers extreme sensitivity and instant hooksets since the gel-spun fibers have virtually no stretch. C16 also features Cortland’s proprietary FiberTech® super braid protection, a unique treatment (not a coating) which penetrates the weave and bonds with the individual gel-spun fibers to stiffen and improve the handling characteristics of the line. ColorLast provides a permanent color while FiberTech® reduces friction in the guides and increases the line’s durability.

C16 is braided with Cortland’s spliceable hollow core construction for fast and reliable splicing of end-loops for wind-on leaders or direct splices for top shots of Monofilament or Fluorocarbon.

FAQ

C16 excels in casting due to the silky smooth construction. Use it for topwater fishing Tuna, Surf Casting, or any application where you need a trusted, smooth braid.

We developed our hollow core braid with 16 carriers to give big game anglers the ultimate foundation for all kinds of splicing. Having 16 individual fibers creates an incredibly solid wall, that is easy to splice and saves time in preparation so you can spend more time on the water.

We recommend Daho splicing needles. They are easy to work with and have a needle for every type of splice.

Easily the best braid for musky

I've been a Master Braid fan for years. The C16 is even better, stronger, nicer, better lay, more supple. The C16 is a tad expensive but worth every penny. 80# in either line is totally superior to any other line from anyone else. Not to bad mouth the Master Braid but the C16 is a whole new experience. The C16 is incredible. As for others? In the past 30years I've used Power Pro Slick8, old Tuff salt & pepper, Sufix 832, Tuff Domin8, Tuff 4orce, original Power Pro, Hi Seas Grand Slam, Daiwa J8, Tuff Classic, and Momoi Diamond Braid. The Diamond Braid is the best of those other brands, but the Master Braid is even better, and C16 is easily the world champion.

Phenomenal weave

Excellent hollow core, I've stitched a lot of them. This line has had no occlusions, the weave is very tight and the line has a firmness to it that some of the other hollow cores are lacking.

Wind-on leaders

The C16 material has been my go to line for making wind on leaders. The ends do not fray as much as other hollowcore lines which makes the serve clean and easy to perform.

Best material hands down!

Couldn’t be happier with this product, I make anywhere from 1,200 to 1,500 wind-on leaders a year and this is yet the best material I’ve ever worked with.

C16 60lb

This is the second spool of C16 I have used, 100 & 60lb. By far the best hollow braid I have fished, and I have used may. It's consistent, void of any flaws and fishes amazing.
