PE line numbering by NeCRoPLaSTiC

We often see this on PE line packaging and on some rods and reels, e.g. PE 1~3, PE 3~6 (rods) or PE 1/200m, PE 2.5/200m , PE 5/300m (reels).... and so on.
So, what it mean?

Also, we may see these numbering on mono line packaging too. e.g. No. 2, No. 7 etc... On reels, No. 2/ 127m, No.3/110, No. 5/120m.... etc...
What it mean?

Of cause, many of you know.
But there are a handful of fellow anglers out there may still get very much mixed up by these numbering.

The table below will explain the relationship of PE number to its thickness and strength.


This form of measurement is a very accurate and standardized form and is especially used in relation to Japanese reels. The normal line thickness to line poundage would be 10lbs/PE or easily said, PE number X 10lbs; PE 5 = 50lbs. However, with the technological advancements nowadays, manufacturers have been able to produce thinner, stronger lines.

As for Mono numbering, similar to the PE's, indicate its standard diameter/thickness.

I do not have the table, but on the whole, every number approximately equal to 4Lbs.
As such, No1 about 4Lbs, No. 2 about 8Lbs, No. 2.5 about 10Lbs, No. 10 about 40Lbs and so on...

The rated strength of the mono varies a little among different manufacturers and brands. But basing on every 1 number equal to 4 Lbs is very safe.

On that day aylwin,mark and jarrett hitted the most fish, me and jamie was not that lucky both of use only landed 1 queen each.

A few small barra's

Just a quick update on one of my recent trip with aylwin and jarrett,we went back to our old forgotten spot to try our luck and yup it still hold some good fishes hahaha. Weather was concider ok.... some rains but it did not stop us from fishing.

I got the first fish of the day on a yo-zuri L minnow with twitch and pause, the fish took the lure while pause and sink. It was a small one but well at least i laned something after so long.

aylwin was the star of the trip he had 2 barra's landed, one of it was landed on the uban lures from chop hock heng

Uban Dream 80

Jarrett had a close encounter but the barra missed the lure right in front of us.

I'll be back for more on wed hahaha will update if there is any catch K
