I have searched and used many brands of Mono and have never been satisfied. 30 years ago while in the Far East (Asia), I used Dam lines for deep sea fishing. So I googled and found Fishusa.com sells them. It was like finding my long lost love again. Am I ever so glad I found the Tectan lines. Their 17.6 lb is just as thick in diameter as Maxima ultra green 10 lb. the 24.6 lb is similar in diameter to the ultra green 12 lb. Tectan is simply the best fishing line available today.
Pros: small diameter
Cons: none

I bought this line for throwing soft plastics for walleye, the thinner line diamiter makes this a very castable soft line. So you can use a stronger mono with the same castabitity as a lighter line. The line has alot of stretch so I would recomend a stiffer rod to make good hooksets. I also think the breaking strenght is a little less then is rated. This line had the qualities I was looking for but if you shop for line based on lb test I would say go a little higher with this line.

It has the smallest diameter of any line in the same weight class, while it seems stronger than any other. You can spool more line on your reels. You do need to know your knots as it does not have much memory. I am using the 43 lb line on my salmon reels. We boat as many as 100 king salmon each year weighing up to 80 lbs. The only line we have ever broken was due to seals and sharks attacking our fish. Given how much money we spend to drag the boat to B.C. for 3 weeks, it doesn't make any sense to cut corners when it comes to tackle.
Pros: excellent strength

I read the positive reviews of this line, and I purchased three of them 4 lb and 10 lb (from fishusa), and 12 lb (from elsewhere). I used the 10 lb and 12 lb for two of recent walleye fishing trip. I used Carolina rig with 8 lb leader of suffix fluocarbon line. Everytime I had a snag on the river bottom or big fish, my 10 lb/12 lb main line always broken at the weight. I lost 30 or 40 weights and rigs at least. That means I always lost the weight and rig. I cannot believe it, the 10 lb and 12 lb cannot beat a 8 lb leader. This is the terrible quality of the line. Much much over exaggerated!!!!! Don't be fooled by the reviewes, and these lines are even expensive.

I have used this line from catching trout, to bass, to crappie, and to catfish. I have put it under some heavy stress and it has held up well. Fished it in the crystal clear waters of Northern Michigan and had a lot of success with small and largemouth bass and pike over the braid my son was throwing. Great for crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and buzzbaits to get that little bit of flex you want so you don't rip the lure out of the fish's mouth like a braid would do. I am very pleased with the strength, low memory, castibility, and low visibility in clear water. I have been using it for years and it is all I have on my baitcasters and spinning rods.
Pros: low visibility, castibility, abrasion resistance, overall strength

I ordered a spool of the Tectan superior 5.5 pound test line. Initially I was impressed with the castability and the low memory of the line. However on the 2nd time using it I noticed that the breaking strength was far below 5.5 pounds. Examples, it broke when I was vertical jigging and release line to drop a 1/64th oz banana jig. It broke when I was taking the rod out of the car with a 1/16th oz jig on it; the jig just fell off, it broke when I was vertical jigging and a small crappie bit. I do not trust this line as it breaks with minimal stress at unpredictable times.
Pros: casts well
Cons: breaks easily

This is a very small diameter line meaning you can use a higher pound test and still gain all the qualities of a smaller line. Not sure how they did it but this stuff is very slick making it cast easier and for longer distances too. It has good strength so no worries there as one of the lakes I fish is full of logs, down trees, rocks that will test that strength. This is one of my favorites and I use it for all my bait casters.

I have used tectan line for about 15 years now. I bought it in bulk back in the 90s, but haven't been able to find it in the United States for some time now (was just about out of my stash). I happened upon this line at good ol' Fish USA and immediately bought 3 spools. If you have never tried this line, you need to. It is absolutely the best walleye jigging line on the market. The heavier weights work wonders for casting cranks too. I will be back to buy more, so you better get yours soon.

Like most others I would guess we all have tried different lines throughout the years to try and find the line we like best. Well this Tectan line is pretty close. It is very smooth like they claim and I would imagine that is one of the reasons it does cast further. It's diameter is also like they claim small but it is strong as I landed a 15 lb or so Drum on 8.2 or 10.3 I cannot remember which one was on that reel. I have 4 or 5 reels with this line both spinning and bait casters. I like it on both types and I believe this is going to be my main line from now on. It seems to be easier also to get those terrible bird nests out of the bait casters too. It is not going to be the strongest line in it's weight I would guess but because of it's size that is not a problem and with the extra distance and the lack of hard memory it is worth every penny.

I use this material as tippet to build my fly-fishing leaders for trout. The strength, limpness and invisibility give me a definite advantage. I use a hard mono for the Butt section which helps turn over the cast putting the Tectan, where it counts; in front of the fish. I like using one level section for nymphing. The green tint makes it invisible to fish which helps me save money from having to buy expensive fluorocarbon.

I have been using Tectan almost exclusively for years and love it. It has a thinner diameter than most mono, especially in the higher test range it can be 20% thinner. Tectan has great knot strength and my favorite knot is the improved clinch which I cinch tightly after applying a good coat of saliva. I have used it for Rainbows, Steelhead, Dolly Varden, Hybrid Stripers, Smallmouth, Coho, Chinook, and Cats etc. As with any mono line, after each catch, I closely inspect the first few feet of line; if there are any nicks, abrasions or discoloration showing stress I clip and retie. In my opinion it is the ultimate spin cast mono as it has very low memory after a short break in period.
Pros: High Quality, cast great, Knot strength, low memory
Cons: It's Mono, but that's not bad

Have used this line before and really liked it. Was difficult to find someone selling the product. I used the line for fishing king salmon on the Columbia. River. We fish from the river bank, called plunking, and toss weights from 10 to 20 oz. as far as possible. With the small diameter line one can use less weight because the resistance on the line by the water is much less. I've all ready had one friend order the same line and a few others will also order in the future. I agree with all the pros about the line and no cons.

Been using DAM Tectan lines for almost 20 years (mostly in fresh water). These lines are very strong indeed and have great abrasion resistance, very low memory, superior knot strength and low visibility in water. They also have much smaller diameter than other monofilament lines (pound per pound) which translates into more line on the spool and longer casts. Try this DAM Tectan line and, once you'll use it, you won't want to go back to the larger diameter lines!

Exactly as advertised and really no need to restate the obvious: thinner, stronger, tougher, than any other mono out there. What's not to like? I'm kind of surprised it's only showing up on these scene recently. Given that it's mono, you would expect that someone would have gotten to it sooner. It really is superior. It would be nice if it came in 30 yard tippet spools, but that's easy. It would be really great as a fly fishing tippet, especially in the small diameters. Currently I have it on two baitcasters. It's great.

About Me:

Years ago I used the original blue Tectan exclusively, considering it the finest monofilament in the world, and purchased it through a well-known mail order company. Then came Tectan Premium Plus. At one point, I began have knot breaking problems. Most online reviews were very positive until around 2007 when the knot-breaking reports began to proliferate. Bought some more thinking it might have been a bad batch issue--same problem. Shortly thereafter, the company dropped the product and with a heavy heart I retired my Tectan stock to the pile of old line I use for backing (sob). Then began the awful, painful process of finding a replacement monofilament for my spinning reels. With dollar after dollar came disappointment after disappointment. Seemed that every mfr was vying for the bass fishing market dominated by casting reels with the afterthought, "Oh yeah, I guess you can use it on spinning reels too...sort of." This spring, lamenting for my lost love, I did a web search on Tectan and found they developed a new line called Superior that won an award in a major European trade show (the birthplace of spin fishing), and that it was being carried by FishUSA. So I ordered some with much anticipation hoping that DAM realized they had a serious problem and needed to fix it. What joy! My baby came back home, and better than ever. My bench testing showed that it had great knot strength. But it was also so supple and so slick. I spooled it up on my Pfleuger Arbor reels (also purchased at FishUSA) and went fishing. What a pleasure. Whisker thin, smooth as silk and tuff as nails. This stuff is so tenacious it just won't give up. The 17.6 lb line was more managable on my spinning reel than other mfr's 10-12 lb! These German chemists have cooked up the most remarkable brew of fishing line ever, strange but wonderful. Happy happy. I can say once again that Tectan is the best spin fishing monofilament in the world. Oh yeah, and it works on casting reels very well also. Tell me the last time you smiled every time you cast? If you use spinning reels, you've got to, got to get this. A couple of notes: 1). This line is so slick and abrasion resistant that typical clinch knots can have a tendency to slip--in other words, it's so slick and flexible that it doesn't even abrade to itself! Use a palomer, uni-knot or "no-name" knot (a uni-knot with the line passed through the eye twice) and you will be a very happy camper indeed (years of bench testing has led me to use the uni-knot almost exclusively anyway). 2). The claim of "near-zero stretch" is a bit of a stretch so to speak. The softer a monofilament line is, the stretchier it's going to be. We haven't managed to break the laws of physics or chemistry yet. But it's not overly stretchy, and is certainly superior in every aspect to other lines that are just as stretchy. The claims of knot strength, low abrasion and limpness are right-on and will exceed your expectations when compared to other lines that claim these features but really don't deliver. 3). Take the line test strength seriously. Most mfr's 12 lb line actually break at 15-17 lb. With Tectan Superior, 12.9 is 12.9. However, you can easily move up to higher tests than what you're used to, as in my case where the Tectan 17.6 actually behaved better and was just as thin as most all others' 12 lb. 4). I would like to see the line in clear instead of the yellow-green, but it's a very minor point in the overall scheme of things. If you spin fish, buy some today. That means right now. Don't waste time mulling it over or putting it off until tomorrow. You'll just be dragging out the drudgery of dealing with that other unmanagable stuff you currently have on your spinning reel. Take hold of your mouse, grab your credit card, go to the link on this site and buy it now. Trust me.

Purchased a 300 meter spool of the 10.4 lb test that has the diamter of 4lb test. I added a 90 foot snell to my power pro and fire line on two of my Shimano Symetry 3000 FL's and one of my Shimano Saros. Used this line yesterday on the Wisconsin River fishing for walleyes. The line performed exceptionaly well. It is very strong and is more abrasion resistent than Berkley trilene XL. Maybe not quite as abrasion resistant as Berkley XT but hey I wasnt fishing with 10lb Berkley Trilene XT either. This line held up well to snags. Very little stretch but enough where you need it. It was able to handle a 4lb walleye and a 12 lb carp caught while jigging. Remember this is 4 lb test diameter line. Would I buy it again? YOU BET This is a great alternative to power Pro in certain situations where you want strength, small diameter and still enjoy the characterisitcs provided by Monofilament.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Where has this monofilament been all my life??? I was introduced to this monofilament in Germany. It's the #1 mono in Europe ... and for good reason! I've only used fine diameter, supple mono's for trout fishing in clear water, and I've used many of the popular brands, but DAM Tectan Premium Plus sets a whole new standard for monofilament fishing line!!! You won't believe it until you try it! This is also an excellent mono for Kokanee.
Pros: Ultra-thin diameter, Very supple, Strong
Cons: none
Best Uses: Trolling, Perfect for trout, Perfect for clear water, Fresh Water

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!

About Me:

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

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
