Cortland's C16 Super braid is the most advanced Spectra fiber trolling line available for saltwater fishing today. Braided in our Cortland, New York, manufacturing facility from 16 spectra 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. Because the spectra fibers have virtually no stretch, the C16 line delivers extreme sensitivity and instant hook sets. 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 spectra fibers to stiffen and improve the handling characteristics of the line. FiberTech also provide a permanent color, reduces friction in the guides and dramatically increases the line's durability.
