HMWPE

High molecular weight gel-spun polyethylene fibers that are stronger than steel. Virtually no stretch for incredible sensitivity. Doesn’t degrade in sunlight / UV light.

Colorlast

Provides the longest lasting color. Doesn’t fade. Doesn’t bleed.

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.

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.

Awesome line

Just spooled up my salmon reel and a few of my bass rods. This line is so smooth and it casts a mile. Heading to alaska to put it through the paces and am excited!

The best!

Cortland C16 is by far the best backing for fly fishing. The durability and abrasion resistance make it first choice for saltwater, jungle and volcanic rivers. Another unique quality is that it makes perfect blind splices and internal loops.

Yes it I spendy but so are $1000 rods and $100 flylines!

C-16 as backing

Love using #40 or #60 C-16 as backing for saltwater fish that go a long way.
