Background

Bionic Braid is the brain child of Rod Harrison, an identity Lefty Kreh calls one of Australia's national treasures. Rod has battled black, striped and blue marlin on the high seas, tarpon and bonefish on the flats, and is equally at home on gun-shy trout in a spring creek.

When spectra/dyneema fibres became available to line makers Rod approached Don McPherson, a lifelong friend and president of the Australian Monofil Company, with the specification for a superior and user-friendly braided backing.

Made from Type 71 super dyneema fibers - the filament industry's finest denier - 50 pound Bionic Braid has become the backing of choice amongst growing numbers of flyrodders. Dean Butler - "if there was anything better, I'd be using it".

Tech/Specs

Compelling Bionic Braid advantages are a near doubling of reel capacities. Over and above standard backing loads of 30 pound dacron/micron, the same reel will take at least 1.8 times as much 50 pound Bionic Braid. This deregulation allows an enormous increase in scope. Bonefish reels theoretically become billfish capable. Flow on advantages include a substantial decrease in water pressure brought about by the comparative thinness of Bionic Braid - and stemming from that, no significant reduction in the reel's recovery rate following a big run.

Super tight weave

Machine braided with a super tight weave, Bionic Braid has a rounded shape - which it retains. And an ideal degree of limpness that lays between that of billowy first generation spectra lines and the wiry crop of thermo fused uni-filament spectra/dyneema lines. Those qualities translate into a braid that handles better and lays more comfortably on a spool. An additional bonus lays in the 7% elasticity the Bionic Braid weave provides. This modicum of stretch, absent in competitor product, provides comparatively higher percentage knot strengths and helps take the load off other knots in the system.

Slick Hi-Viz Finish

Bionic Braid has a unique slick and durable Teflon based finish that outlasts the coatings of other spectra/dyneema lines. This treatment negates concerns (which have been somewhat overrated) about gelspun lines cutting rod runners and careless hands. Bionic Braid is optically enhanced - it's trademark fluorescent pink colour provides exceptional situation awareness under a wide range of weather and water conditions. Visibility-wise Bionic braid provides the best of both worlds. We see it, fish do not. Scientific research has established that bright pink is not on the vision register of offshore gamefish and many commonly caught inshore/freshwater fish.

Features:
  • Made in Australia, from Type 75 Dyneema fibres - currently the industry's finest denier - Bionic Braid is stronger than any fused Spectra/Dyneema lines of comparable diameter
  • Thinner yet stronger than dacron - nearly doubling reel capacities
  • Retains its rounded shape on the spool
  • Ideal degree of limpness
  • 7% elasticity - means more striking fish solidly hooked, lesshooked fish lost and comparatively higher percentage knot strengths
  • Better lure actions - Flow-on advantages include crisper lure actions, deeper running depths, and positive hook setting
  • Teflon based finish outlasts the heat treatment 'coating' of other fused Spectra/Dyneema lines
  • Optically enhanced - fluorescent pink colour provides exceptional situation awareness under a wide range of weather and water conditions
