*The accepted industry standard for diameters is +- .0005”, and in 5X material these day most manufacturers are at .0065”, which technically if you
rounded off would be 4X, but since it has become standard across the board we have elected to go this route as well. If we went to a diameter of
.0055”, we would technically be 5X but when we were compared in the marketplace to other 5X materials we would be slightly finer in diameter and
thus would look weaker than we actually are.
** We used the improved clinch knot, probably the most common knot used in fly fishing and thus a real-world test. The knots were all tied by the
same experienced knot tier and soaked overnight. This test is a lot more valid than simple dry break strength.
