Heres one I had not seen before :eek:mg:
''Wychwood Silk Mode multipolymer tippet line. It’s supple feel and low density helped keep my flies higher in the water, as opposed to my normal go to tippet, Wychwood Ghost Mode.( fluro carbon)''

I thought that might fire you up a bit.:eek:mg:

He-he.

Just when I thought there was light at the end of the tunnel and they were stopping calling nylon 'copolymer' and going back to calling it nylon... :eek:mg:

Maybe they thought they had wrung every drop they could out the word 'copolymer' and they needed a new word for nylon?

What have they got against using the word nylon, FFS? :noidea:

Think someone on here works for Wychwood and has been reading the flouro/copoly threads.

Well, I'm sure you know this, but.....

Nylon sells for $1 per nautical kilometre. So call it nylon and you're competing with people selling it for sfa, but call it invisible, super-hard yet super supple, nano-polycarbonate enriched Kryptonite and you can triple your sales margin.

And as a btw, there is no measurable difference in the cost of production of 50m of nylon versus 50m of fluorocarbon.

Market-based pricing is a wonderous thing.

All well and good but what do they all (NOT) do differently to standard nylon. ;)
