The EFTTEX Best New Product Awards 2017

Many technical obstacles exist to producing braided lines in fine diameters that are round, smooth and reliable. Helix HCB line has solved these issues, says First Dart. It is promising a PE line starting from 0.08mm diameter with a smooth finish that “handles like a mono line but with the strength and low stretch of a braid”.

Instead of using three or more carriers of low denier and expensive PE to braid a fishing line, First Dart uses a new technique called Homogenous Compound Bonding that allows the production of super-strong fishing lines with smooth surfaces and low diameters at affordable prices.

First Dart says the innovative benefits of this product are:

  • A smoother finish than regular braids for longer, smoother, easier casting
  • A round profile for better knotting, less kinking and twisting
  • Finer diameters than normal braids available for all fishing types
  • Pricing that is more affordable than braids, which makes high performance lines available to more anglers

Available in standard colours of black, grey, blue and fluo yellow with custom colours available on request, Platinum Helix HCB line delivers a high performance line with new features at an affordable price.
