Nylon and dyneema lines


How to choose nylon and dyneema lines?

Nylon and dyneema lines for spearguns are one of the best lines for spearguns. These lines are much more powerful than regular speargun lines, and now many fishers utilize them. The nylon and dyneema lines are for spearguns created with thin threads and they manage to have a layer to cover the flimsy fibers. The brands that offer these lines are Cressi, SEAC, Mares, Salvimar, and Beuchat.

Choosing the nylon and dyneema lines for spearguns

When choosing between nylon and dyneema lines, there are several factors to consider based on your specific needs and the intended use of the line. Here are some key considerations:

Strength and Durability: Dyneema lines are known for their exceptional strength to weight ratio. They are significantly stronger than nylon lines of the same diameter. If you require a line with high tensile strength and minimal stretch, Dyneema is an excellent choice. Nylon lines, on the other hand, offer good strength but are generally not as strong as Dyneema. However, nylon lines tend to be more durable and resistant to abrasion, making them suitable for applications where wear and tear are common.
Stretch and Shock Absorption: Nylon lines have a higher degree of stretch compared to Dyneema. This stretch provides excellent shock absorption, making nylon lines a preferred choice for applications that require some give and forgiveness, such as docking lines or anchor lines. Dyneema lines have minimal stretch, which can be advantageous for applications that require maximum sensitivity and minimal elongation, like fishing or kite flying.
Water Resistance: Nylon lines tend to absorb water, which can affect their strength and performance. Wet nylon lines can become weaker and may require drying before storage. Dyneema lines, on the other hand, are highly resistant to water absorption. They maintain their strength and performance even when wet, making them suitable for water based applications like boating or marine sports.
UV Resistance: Both nylon and Dyneema lines can be treated or manufactured to have UV resistance. However, in general, Dyneema lines tend to have better inherent UV resistance and can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without significant degradation. If your line will be exposed to outdoor elements and sunlight, consider selecting a UV resistant variant for better longevity.
Diameter and Flexibility: Nylon lines typically have a larger diameter compared to Dyneema lines of the same strength. This can affect their flexibility and ease of handling. Dyneema lines are thinner and more flexible, allowing for better knot tying and easier handling in general. If you require a line that is easy to work with and has a smaller diameter, Dyneema may be a better choice.
It´s important to assess the requirements of your specific use case and consider the trade offs between strength, stretch, water resistance, UV resistance, and price.
