Tectan Premium Plus from DAM is Europe's number 1 monofilament. With the same low visibility and small diameter of the original Tectan Premium and even more break strength and knot strength, Tectan Premium Plus sets the standard of performance for monofilament lines.

 

 

DAM Tectan Premium Plus Monofilament

The specially treated line surface gives Premium Plus even more resistance to abrasion and UV deterioration. The slight yellow-green coloration blends in with the natural color of the water and is practically invisible to fish.

 

  • Specially treated line surface for even more resistance to abrasion
  • Superior knot strength
  • Small diameter size
  • Excellent lower memory castability

 

 

We stock DAM Tectan Premium Plus Monofilament in 300 meter filler spools (200 meter spools for 37.2 pound test). Please note that this line has a breaking strength much closer to the posted breaking strength, unlike many other nationally-known monofilaments. Diameters of this line are as follows:

This is the best line I have ever used for PA trout. I have tried numerous others but the diameter and feel of this line is outstanding. 4lb test is all you need it cast like a dream and your knots stay put, I fish with all types of lures and bait and you wil never see my trout reels line with no other brand only the green dam will do. I have also been using this for 6 years now.
Pros: Best diameter to strenght, Best line money can buy, Casts very well, Blends In Well, Good strength
Cons: NO FALTS

About Me:

I have used this line for 15 years and despite trying others, this is still my first choice. The extrememly thin diameter per break strength ratio is fantastic. (NOTE: when they say 5.1 lbs, they mean 5.1 to 6 lbs, not 8lbs like some other companies choose to do). The extremely low visibility in water helps when fishing the clear streams and lakes in the Rocky Mountains.

I purchased two spools of the Tec Tan after my brother-in-law told me that Fish USA carried it. One of the best features of the line is its strength to line diameter ratio. The same reel that used to have 10 pound test lineo on now has 15.8 pound line. On another reel that I have used 4 pound test on allows me to spool with 7.3 pound test. Also; The line is very transparent in the water, casts easily, and stays limp in cold weather. Now maybe I'll catch more fish than that "Fish Whisperer" bother-in-law of mine!

Knot strength was a serious problem w/ the 4 lb line - I used a clinch and a palomar knot (wetted to tighten down) and had numerous breaks at the knot.

About Me:

This is the best trout or panfish line I have ever used. I was really upset when a large retailer/catalog chain quit carring it. I use it for trout fishing on the White & Norfork rivers in Arkansas and jig fish with 1/16oz or less. The thin line allows the jig to sink fast and small spools to hold a lot of line. Just be careful with knots, I use a dble inproved clinch or Palomar lubercate the knot w/saliva and pull tight slowlly to keep heat down. As long as you tie a good knot this line can't be beat I really love this line.It will allow you to use a higher # test with light line performace.

Used both the 5.1 and 4 pound test on the White River in Arkansas while trout fishing. The diameter is much smaller for the pound test than other 4 pound test lines that I have used. Both lines were easy to work with and I had no twisting while putting the line on my reel. However, the 4 pound test did give me problems at the knot. Lost two lures due to knot failure on average fish. Have not had this problem with other 4 pound test lines in the past. I did not have any problem with the 5.1 pound test. I will continue to fish with these lines for a few more trips but may go back to my original line if I continue to have problems.

May want to go up in poundage. Their weight ratings are pretty accurate unlike domestic lines. The line will still be thinner than almost all others.
Pros: Very thin, Good strength, Best ice fishing line out, low memory
Cons: Line is too thin to see
Best Uses: Ice Fishing

I have used this line for years,buying it from another dealer, and when they discontinued it I was sick. They were the only one that carried this line.I sure was glad to see you started to carry it, because I was in a panic as to what to do when my stock ran out. I would like to see you carry the larger size spools--1/4 lb, etc.

About Me:

I've purchased Tectan line in the past; but not from FishUSA.com., until this purchase. I've had problems in some Tectan line purchases in the past, but not from FishUSA.com. The problems being that the line easily snapped below rated strength. However, most times the Tectan line has lived up to its test rating, and it great for trout fishing being so thin and limp. The 5.1 pound test Tectan line (two spools) I specifically purchased and rec'd from FishUSA.com were hand tested, as soon as I rec'd the line; and the line held up to alot of pulling and jerking tension. So,I'm looking forward to use the line very soon for Southern California Winter trout fishing. For only the Tectan 5.1 pound test line that I specifically rec'd, I would give it a five star rating; but can't do so, since I haven't actually used the line yet. [...]

I like to fly fish as much as time will allow. That has been about 25-30 days a year. I discoverd DAM Tectan about 3 years ago and have been filling my spools of 3x-7x tippet ever since! I like to fill my spools with a lot so I know I won't run out on the stream. I live on the edge with casting close to danger, so I do break off. Its nice to know I can be back fishing in a few knots. This mono is small enough to use on my size 8-22 hooks and stronger than most tippet out there. The cost is much more reasonable because you get so much! I will be fishing with this from now on!

Bought this for steelhead fishing - got the 13.9 lbs. actually measured .011 - used on both spinning and center pin reels. Had no trouble - cast great. Best strength to diameter of any line I have used. Allows me to use stronger tippet, which, resulted in only one break off. Plan to get some more of this.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I am an avid fisher man. I fish freshwater fish from trout to salmon.First time I used this line salmon fishing I was shocked on how strong the line is for the diameter the line did not let my 28lb. salmon get away. It stands up well to abrasions and very little line memory. The only down side is trying to tie a knot with line. The thin diameter of the line makes it hard to grab with fingers. Over all the line exceeds the best lines I tried so far.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I cast for salmon from the beach in Puget Sound. I use light tackle and in the past have always used 12lb maxima green. With Tectan I can use 14lb test and spool a lot more of it since it is much smaller in diameter. It is also far more supple than other lines of similar test. It casts about the same as other lines on my casting reels but noticably better than other lines on my spinning reels.
Pros: Very supple, Easy To Handle, Very small diameter
Cons: none
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Salt Water

About Me:

I've been using the Tectan 3.3lb. for years on Missouri trout. The line is very limp and an ease to cast yet strong. Tectan 3.3 lb. gives you more strength with less diameter than other brand's 2 lb. line. There is some difficulty in knot tying tying due to the limpness of the line but the overall performance is worth it.
Pros: Strong, Good For Variety Of Fish
Cons: Difficult to Handle

i have used this product 'cause a friend suggested. no complaints what's so ever. it is a strong line and fish has rarely broken off the line. in my limited fishing experience. i tend to follow what experts do and in my case, my friend Don. He also tells me, if you develop any nicks or rough spot on the line, get rid off that part of the line since mono filament will tend to brake off easier at that point.

After trying three different brands of the new fluorocarbon line this year, and being let down by all the false promises of easy castability, limpness, and limpness I tried Dam. I used the the new fluoro lines for spool filler and spooled all six Diawa spinning reels with the 3 different test lines of Dam..It's good stuff!!! It is sensitive and cast like a rocket. The added plus is the thin diameter lets me use higher test line than before, without any problems. I landed a 10.8 lb bass on a 2"grub 1/32oz. jig while crappie fishing on 20mm line..What more can I say..Kiko
