Nylon Fishing Line
Nylon is a flexible, easy-to-use material which resists deforming and has a wide range of applications. Nylon line fits well on a reel and is an easy to use casting line. It stretches slightly, making it a good material for use as a shock leader to absorb stress on the line. Nylon is prone to water absorption and ultraviolet rays damage; however, recent new manufacturing methods and coating technology have dramatically improved nylon’s durability.
Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
Wear resistant and sensitive, fluorocarbon is commonly used as shock leader. It has excellent wear resistance when it comes into contact with obstacles. Its high specific gravity make it effective for fishing tackle and lures that require sinking. Although conventional fluorocarbon lacks flexibility, innovations in material and manufacturing methods are now producing a more flexible fluorocarbon.
PE | Braided Fishing Line
PE lines’s strength, sensitivity, and thinness has revolutionized fishing methods. Its non-stretching strength returns sensitive feedback from the end of the line. Because PE is 2.5 to 3 times stronger than nylon with equivalent diameter, its thinness has revolutionized fishing methods across various fields. Some caution for its use, however, due to its weakness against abrasion wear and being too supple of a line.
PAR | Nylon & Polyacrylate Hybrid
A hybrid composite yarn of nylon and polyacrylate (Acrylate polymer). PAR features high specific gravity (1.4), super abrasion resistance, excessive tension and elasticity.
Polyester Fishing Line
Polyester line (aka Ester) provides very good sensitivity. Its high specific gravity controls a delicate game. Polyester is very tenacious, hard, and has a low elongation compared to nylon and fluorocarbon line. Due to its characteristics, polyester line is often used in a hi-lo rig set up with multiple hooks and leaders. Because of its high sensitivity and specific gravity, second only to fluorocarbon, thin diameter polyester line has become popularly used for Aging and pond fishing competitions. Polyester has no water absorption and is superior to nylon in abrasion resistance.
PVC Fishing Line
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the same material used for common products like PVC pipe, is a durable material that is easy to process and add color to it. PVC is a common material in fly fishing line.
Metal Fishing Line
VARIVAS Metal line products utilize shape memory titanium alloy, achieving both uncompromising strength of metal and pliability of nylon. VARIVAS Metal line is used for underwater line where both thinness and strength are required, as in Ayu fishing and mountain stream fishing.
Hybrid Metal Fishing Line
VARIVAS Composite/Hybrid Metal line is combined with tungsten and aramid fiber, resulting in a line that is easier to handle than a single wire metal line. Composite Metal line is the best material for underwater line, especially for fishing Ayu and other mountain stream fish.
LS4 Braided Line
VARIVAS LS4 4-strand braid PE is a tight-tension, ultra-low stretch fishing line. With only 4% elongation (stretch), LS4 PE has 30% less stretch than conventional PE fishing line.
LS8 Braided Line
Made with VARIVAS’s unique high tech ‘Tight Tension 8 Braid Method’ this ultra-sensitive, 8-strand PE line has a low protraction/elongation rate in the range of 4%, eliminating the line vibration characteristic of 4-braid lines.

Max Power PE (MAX-PE) is 1.3 – 1.5 times stronger than ordinary PE line, providing absolute line power to bring in fish with less fighting time.
MAX-PE Plus Line
MAX-PE Plus is VARIVAS Max Power PE (MAX-PE) engineered with a special coating to produce the perfect degree of line tension, enhance durability and prevent discoloration.
SMP | Super Max Power PE Line
Developed specifically for big game targets, such as Tuna, and time consuming tackle, VARIVAS’s Super Max Power SMP PE 8- braid fishing line has dramatically improved linear strength and durability. Engineered with VARIVAS’s specially coated Max Power raw yarn, MAX PE Plus line is transformed into SMP PE–a line with remarkable high strength, high abrasion resistance and durability, twice that of ordinary PE.
Si-X PE braided line
Si-X PE braided fishing line pursues the limit of high durability. VARIVAS created Si-X PE out of the need to solve PE line’s well known weakness to heat caused by friction from the lengthy fight with big game. Strength and super durability is achieved by kneading and weaving VARIVAS’s proprietary heat resistant Si-X material into VARIVAS Max Power PE (MAX-PE) raw yarn.
DC-PE braided line
DC-PE is a hybrid composite yarn made of PE and high specific gravity monofilament polyester that combines adequate tension with higher specific gravity (1.12).
VSP is the strongest, most durable, fluorocarbon line produced by VARIVAS. VARIVAS’s new VSP fluorocarbon manufacturing method achieves greater strength results than conventional fluorocarbon line.
VLS - Very Low Stretch Nylon
VARIVAS’s VLS nylon line manufacturing method suppresses elongation, a known tendency of nylon, resulting in a nylon line with less stretch and improved sensitivity and operability. VLS nylon line also exceeds linear strength and wear resistance compared to ordinary nylon.
VARIVAS SVG nylon line is the strongest, thinnest nylon to date–2x stronger than ordinary nylon and stronger than VA-G nylon line.
VARIVAS high tenacity VEP nylon line is 20x more abrasion resistant than ordinary nylon.
VARIVAS VEP-F manufacturing process adds flexibility to it’s abrasion resistant VEP nylon line.

VARIVAS AIRS Nylon is a 100% floating, hollow, nylon fishing line that maintains tensile and linear strength.
VARIVAS’s MA nylon is a strong, supple nylon fishing line with controlled range of elongation.
High-tech Protective Coating and Processing
SP-F | Super Fluoride Coating
VARIVAS Super Fluoride (SP-F) coating) creates a water-repellent protective film on the surface of the line that protects against water absorption, increases flight distance, and improves abrasion resistance.
VARIVAS SP-H is a super hard coating that adds tension without stiffness to PE line, reducing the tendency of thin line to cling to the rod.
VARIVAS’s original SP-S super suspend technology, produces a line that quickly enters the water, breaking the surface tension of the water surface, even in rough water and windy conditions.
VARIVAS’s SP-T is a super tough coating with resin film that covers the surface of the line, reducing water absorption, improving wear resistance and flight distance, and increasing durability.
VARIVAS S-spec Smooth Shield coating prevents water absorption and creates a unique friction guard surface while maintaining suppleness of the raw yarn, resulting in increased flight distance and improved durability of the line.
Tic | Titanium Coating
VARIVAS Titanium (Tic) coating improving smoothness, strength and durability of VARIVAS fishing line, while reduces friction and early onset wear.
Ultraviolet Protective Coating
VARIVAS’s UV ultraviolet protective line coating protects line from sunlight, blocking ultraviolet rays and preventing deterioration.
VARIVAS’s fluorescent color coating dramatically improves the visibility of the line. Ideal fishing line for situations where glare on the surface of the water, reflections of scenery, and fishing line are difficult to on account of sunglare.VARIVAS’s Float processing allows the fishing line to drift under water with a delicate balance. Ideal line for Surf/Iso fishing, enabling you to operate the rig without wind and waves affecting the line.
NON Non-stress Coating
VARIVAS’s NON (non-stress) coating protects better against water absorption, ultraviolet light, saltwater, and friction. This specialized coating also adds strength of the line.
VARIVAS’s ND-S processing controls flexibility, tension, and hardness according to the purpose of the line. ND-S eliminates the feeling of discomfort and changes in feeling of use due to changes in the seasons and the thickness of the line.
IGFA Class Specification
IGFA (International Game Fishing Association). VARIVAS’s IGFA line complies with IGFA regulations regarding line strength.
Over Weight Heavy-duty Specification
Parallel Winding Spool
Parallel Winding prevents line from collapsing under pressure, by maintaining the line’s shape and maximizing original strength and linearity of the line
Soft Winding Spool
By winding line without applying tension, the performance of the line is maintained, because it is not crushed or stretched.
Cold Climate Specification
VEP nylon line does not easily deteriorate or harden in water, owing to the composite effect of SP-F processing that prevents water from adhering. The line hardens even at low water temperatures, resists freezing and has excellent operability.
