        Materials

        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.

        Manufacturing Technologies
