Cortland Line


Cortland C16 Super Braid - White
Cortland’s C16™ Super Braid is the most advanced gel-spun fiber, hollow core casting and trolling line available for saltwater fishing today. Braided in our Cortland, New York, manufacturing facility from 16 gel-spun fibers, C16 line features a tight, round weave and uniform pick count (wraps per inch) for an exceptionally smooth surface that packs tightly on the spool with no flattening or digging in. Its fine diameter minimizes line drag when trolling or fighting fish, and the 16 carrier construction results in incredible resistance to nicks and abrasions during protracted fights with big fish.

The C16 line delivers extreme sensitivity and instant hooksets since the gel-spun fibers have virtually no stretch. C16 also features Cortland’s proprietary FiberTech® super braid protection, a unique treatment (not a coating) which penetrates the weave and bonds with the individual gel-spun fibers to stiffen and improve the handling characteristics of the line. ColorLast provides a permanent color while FiberTech® reduces friction in the guides and increases the line’s durability.

C16 is braided with Cortland’s spliceable hollow core construction for fast and reliable splicing of end-loops for wind-on leaders or direct splices for top shots of Monofilament or Fluorocarbon.
