Diving Applications

If you use reels for your diving activities then spare reel line is one handy item to have on hand. Nylon braided line is used because it's sturdy and it doesn't float. This is the type of line used on top quality reels and spools and thus makes a great replacement reel and spool line. These are three line sizes recommended by GUE and DIR.

#18 (or 18 gauge) is the lightest line and commonly used for distance lines.

These lines are highly recommended for use on primary reels, safety reels, jump/gap reels, and finger spools. Overloaded reels and spools are common and too much line can cause jams during initial deployment. If you are having a problem with jams, check the length of the line and try removing some excess if your reel or finger spool has been overloaded.
