SIGLON PE ADV (advanced) to the next level thanks to the latest manufacturing process.

Let us explain in detail 'How ADV is different' from the original SIGLON PE.

 

【About the water repellency】

We compared the water repellency between SIGLON PE X8 and SIGLON PE ADV.

When we put a water drop onto the SIGLON PE X8, the drop soaks into the line (same as normal PE lines.)

However, SIGLON PE ADV shows an excellent water repellency due to a special

resin that penetrates deep into the fiber.

This technology is the first in the industry, we named it 'DRT' which stands

for 'Deep Resin Technology'.

 

 

This is an image when a water drop is put on SIGLONPE ADV.

SIGLON PE X8 absorbs water, but SIGLON PE ADV shows an excellent water repellency.

 

This is a picture of the cross section of SIGLON PE ADV.

Fibers are densely combined as the resin penetrates firmly between the fibers.This leads to high water repellency.

 

Due to the special processing, the water sheds from the line easily, so the line is unlikely to become heavy. That means you can make a long cast every time.

Also, the line doesn't stick to the rod.

As a result, you can continue fishing without stress.

 

 

【About the strength】

Let us explain about strength.

We tested SIGLON PE ADV 10lb(#0.8).

Strength shown on the package is 4.5kg(Avg.) and 6kg(Max.).

Of course there is a bit of 'width' in strength, but the strength reached the Max easily.

 

【About the Slickness】

In the slickness test, we compared SIGLON PE ADV 12lb(#1) and SIGLON PE X8 12lb(#1).

SIGLON PE ADV showed an overwhelming difference in the 10g sliding weight test.

As you can see from the table, the slickness has been improved by about 25%.

 

 

Furthermore, we carried out a casting test on a soccer field.

 

 

In this test, SIGLON PE ADV 12lb(#1) and SIGLON PE X8 12lb(#1) are used.

The weight of the sinker is 15g.

We cast 30 times each.

The results are…

The difference is around 3m in average, and 5m in the maximum.

It's clear that casting distance is an advantage for anglers.

 

 

【About the Abrasion】

We conducted an abrasion resistance test with our own self-developed machine.

 

 

Abrasion resistance tester originally developed by Sunline

 

 

Abrasion resistance test

 

We use SIGLON PE ADV 12lb(#1) and SIGLON PE X8 12lb(#1).

A sinker of 50g is used.

SIGLON PE X8 12lb(#1) breaks after 135 times.

SIGLON PE ADV 12lb(#1)breaks after 404 times.

 

 

This is a big advantage DRT processing brought.

Due to its high abrasion resistance, it is possible to fish near cover like timber

or rocks where its difficult to fish with normal PE lines.

 

Furthermore, due to DRT processing, SIGLON PE ADV is stiffer than SIGLON PE.

With a soft PE line, troubles such as entanglement can occur, but such

troubles are reduced with ADV's moderate stiffness.

This makes it possible to cast deep into of the bush.
