Gear Review: Sufix 832

Sufix 832Sufix — in partnership with Gore, the makers of Gore-Tex Fabrics — has created a brand new breakthrough in fishing line technology: Sufix 832.

Sufix 832 fishing line offers stealth technology that the company claims “will shake the fishing line industry to its core.” The combination of Gore’s expertise in advanced materials, Sufix’s capability and know-how with fishing lines and new R8 Precision Braiding Technology, results in the ultimate advanced technical fishing line, Sufix 832.

“Over the years, there have been few breakthroughs in fishing line,” says Al Lindner, Sufix enthusiast and legendary angler. “Sufix 832 has broken that mold and set the standard with its ground-breaking technology.”

Sufix 832 is comprised of three main technology features. The first is Dyneema fibers, which contribute to the small diameter, high strength and sensitivity of the fishing line. The Gore Performance Fibers add improved abrasion resistance, noise and vibration reduction, along with improved casting length and accuracy. Lastly, the R8 Precision Braiding and fiber technology add superior strength, roundness and line consistency.

Gore has the best rope tester in the world. Using the rope tester, test after test, Gore 832 performed above all others. In fact, Sufix 832 retained 95 per cent of its rated strength, the only fishing line in the world that does this.

Formulated with eight fibers — seven Dyneema and one Gore — at 32 pics (weaves) per inch, Sufix 832 is the only fishing line to combine both Dyneema and GORE polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) fibers.

“The composition of these two fibers coming together creates the strongest, most abrasion-resistant, fastest-sinking, UV-protected, roundest fishing line on the market,” says Lindner.

Six years in development, Sufix 832 allows anglers for the first time to have a fishing line designed with all of the characteristics to match any application worldwide.

Sufix 832 features the highest knot and tensile strength to diameter, the roundest profile of any fishing line and improved durability and abrasion resistance. The company claims anglers will immediately notice longer, more consistent casting in part due to the reduced friction, high sensitivity, low stretch and quiet, low vibration when casting.
