Sunline Siglon PE ADV (advanced) takes the original Siglon PEx8 to the next level thanks to the latest manufacturing process, making it superior in its water repellency, strength, slickness and abrasion resistance.

Water repellency

Sunline compared the water repellency between Siglon PEx8 and Siglon PE ADV. When a water drop was placed on to the original Siglon PE the drop soaks into the line (which is normal for PE lines). However Siglon PE ADV shows an excellent repellency due to a special resin that penetrates deep into the fibre. This technology is the first in the industry which Sunline named Deep Resin Technology (DRT). 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.

Fibres
This is a picture of the cross section of Siglon PE ADV. Fibres are densely combined as the resin penetrates firmly between the fibres, this leads to high water repellency.

 

Abrasion Resistance An abrasion resistance test was conducted with Sunline’s own self-developed machine.

Siglon PE ADV 12lb (#1) and Siglon PEx8 12lb (#1) was used as was a 50g sinker. The original Siglon PE broke after 135 times whereas ADV didn’t break until after 404 times.

This is a big advantage of DRT processing. Due to its high abrasion resistance it is possible to fish near cover like timber or rocks where it’s difficult to fish with normal PE lines. DRT processing also means the ADV line is stiffer than Siglon PEx8. With a soft PE line troubles such as entanglement can occur but troubles are reduced with ADV’s moderate stiffness. This makes it possible to cast deep into of the bush.
