Good day guys.
I want this line in 200lb sold per meter. Do anyone know who sell these line in 200lb per meter? I've been googling but do not get it.
Why 200lb? Just because I want it to stay strong, even if it is used very abusively. My hooklinks and sinker will still use very lighter line. And at .35mm it is the same diameter as the current mono line I am using.
150lb is available, and is much stronger than I will ever need, but I would like to get the 200lb.

Yeah I got 150lb from All out a few months ago for my klopstok...sure they will have 200lb...

Personally 200lb is over kill! It is going to be a mare if you get snagged up...

Just be careful,the stated diameters of Whiplash is not accurate.It's about double the stated diameter.So if the spool says 0.35,it's probably close to 0.60.Plus it floats,so it's not really ideal near your hookbait.

Thanks for pointing this out. Why are manufacturers not held accountable for lying on the packaging?
I compared 80lb Whiplash with 80lb braid of another well known brand, but the Whiplash were really appreciably thinner. Most braid that I have floats, or are at least neutral in buoyancy. They do sink with time, read very slowly.

Braid get to the stated thickness at full load. Wind the braid at 15kg drag so it does not cut into the spool line.
It tends to be thinner once unwound for the first time.
