Where did it break on the technium? I lost a fish when it snapped at a leader knot, the only knot to use on technium is Palomar which is miles stronger.. I went over to cm90 and havnt had a break or anything in 2 years in 15lb. I have respooled twice and will be respooling again soon.. love it, before that I tried virtually every line on the market!

Doesn't seem to fair very well in the tackle box line tests...


Tackle box line test

I've used both Technium black which I've found to be very good and very low stretch and ESP synchro xt which is both and the one I prefer.

GTHD is great line been using since its launch in 2015. Never let me down havnt had one snap up yet. Get great feed back down the rod tip as well when feeling the drop and casts like a dream. I use 15lb but i know others who use 18lb and like it just as much

Hi Stephen

Might be worth looking at the spiderwire offerings, they do both EZ and hybred mono, which I think they now sell as ultimate mono.
Might cover what you're after

Best

No need to take your period out on me mate, it was a valid question as most would say "for feeling the lead down" I was going to suggest really low stretch doesn't always seem to be the best for that due to bounce back and also lower stretch reduces other important factors in a line such as strength and abrasion, so you have to weigh up whether low stretch is really what you what🤔

Can I ask what are your reasons for specifically wanting low stretch mono?

Pro Gold, if you can get hold of it.
Birmingham Angling center has some I'm told.
Never tried Shimano Technium or Gardner GT, but apparently they're low stretch.
Touchdown has lower strecth than CM90.

Mad really as thatís one line Iíd trust anywhere. Feel like me reels going to snap trying to retrieve it at times.

Recently had trans khaki 20lb go on me on what I thought was a real small snag. Was impressed until that happened. That night it came off and technium went back on.

GT-HD is very good indeed. I hate Technium now, the first time I lost the Thames record, it was that, which it snapped like cotton with over 100 yards out. I used to love it before that. I saw a new line to me recently, and I was super impressed with it. Low diameter, low stretch, 3.3mm rated at 18lb. I watched my friend break a 30lb braid link, when straight rodding it to retrieve a snagged rig on a flooded river. It's very strong, very limp, great colour. Casts a dream. I was visually impressed, he loves it.

£9.99 a spool, it's called Katran Synapse.

Agreed. Technium Black has very little stretch.
