Viking Trail Line is made from Samson's 12-Strand AmSteel Blue a Twelve-Strand single Braid that is the world's strongest fiber! The Trail Line in 3/8" diameter only weighs 3.6 lbs per 100' and it's extremely low stretch makes this line much safer and easier to use than steel cable.
Comments: Having synthetic for me was a no brainer. It's much easier to work with the synthetic and its safer. The extra benefit is the reduced weight. It can be a bit squirrely to get spooled right (although spooling it right isn't as important as with steel cable). But, that's not really a fault of the product.
