STROFT GTM is not only the best tippet for dry fly fishing, it is the number 1 monofilament fishing line in the world! The TÜV in Munich (Germanys leading standards organization) confirmed that STROFT GTM was the best line tested – and in the US magazine THE FLY-FISHERMAN Tippet SHOOTOUT – Final results the STROFT GTM was found to be the top pick for overall strength! (See also www.stroft.de -> test results). The main aim of the tuning process that STROFT GTM undergoes is to maximise the line’s breaking strain whilst improving its highly elastic suppleness. This process is constantly being improved, but it is basically a multilevel temperature treatment. Hence the name GTM (German: Getempertes Monofil, English: tempered monofilament). At the same time we are continually improving the mix of polyamide alloys that are used. Once certain developments in process or materials have proven themselves, they flow into the production process; guaranteeing the best line that is technically possible to achieve. In this way, over the years, we have been able to adjust the refining and tuning process so that characteristics such as dynamic friction, adhesion, surface hardness, surface smoothness, elastic limit, breaking strength, minimal-load elongation, strike elongation, fighting elongation, sensibility, feed back, memory, flexibility and softness have been persistently improved. Between diameter 0,03 mm and 0,30 mm STROFT GTM is available in very fine nuances of 0,01 mm. Between 0,30 mm and 0,60 mm the nuances are 0,025 mm. This equally results in very fine nuances in the range of breaking strain.
All this makes STROFT GTM the perfect fishing line whenever knot strength in combination with all the other attributes of a top quality fishing line are in demand. STROFT GTM is the right fishing line for all anglers who only want the best quality, namely the best in the world!
We have had Stroft set up the spools based on the American “X” system and each spool comes with 55 yards of GTM!
