Crab Line

Line Quality – Is quality line worth the extra money? You decide!

Ever wonder why some lines have to be “seasoned" to sink, while other lines sink without seasoning? The lighter (cheaper) line starts out with a fiber core and then has a acket spun around the fiber to make the finished line. In order for the fiber core lines to sink, the fiber core must absorb water to become heavier in order to sink, thus so named “ seasoning.”

In addition to the sinking factor, the life of the line is much less (2-3 years on average) because the outer shell wears thru to the fiber core and the line breaks continually resulting in you having to replace your line every 2-3 years.

Captain Bruce’s lines do not have fiber fillers. All lines are made in the manufacturing process by using ALL polyester, or ALL nylon, resulting in a heaver “SINKING LINE” because they don’t have a soft filler core. If your line is not sinking to the bottom (on its own), you are not going to catch as many crabs.

In addition to the self-sinking line, Captain Bruce’s line will last up to 3 times longer (9-10 years) on average.  Some customers have reported that they have been using this type of quality line for 20 years or more and its still being used today. When Captain Bruce inquired as to what is the secret to keeping a line that long they all say just take care of it. Taking care of it means use it as often as you want, but when you are not using it, keep in out of the sun, and dry it out and store it dry in the off season.

 So what’s the difference between Imported and Made in USA line?

Imported:  This line is made overseas. The main difference between imported crab line and USA made line is that the imported line is a little poorer in quality, and a little stiffer than the USA made line which makes it a little more difficult when you use a winder or to store it in your basket

Made in the USA: Captain Bruce's crab line is made in the USA. It's medium lay, its better quality, and coils up easily to store in your bucket or basket.

So You decide? Line Quality – Is quality line worth the extra money??
